Bob Gentry was born in Detroit, Michigan. Bitten by the music bug at the age of seven he quickly learned to play the guitar and piano on his own. Because of his shyness, he found it easier to express himself by writing music and at the age of seventeen, his repertoire consisted of almost fifty songs. While in high school Bob formed an all-original rock and roll band and headed for the Detroit club scene. Eventually this band became the Detroit version of Moisture.
The group attracted a following and was nominated for "Best Rock Band" at the Motor City Music Awards in the late 1990s. Simultaneously, Moisture was chosen to be the subject of a music video by Spec''s Howard School of Broadcasting. They were also selected by Chicago''s Independent Label Festival to perform in the windy city, which also handed out compilation CDs to attendees with a Moisture song as the first track. Moisture also appeared on a television show called "Detroit''s Underground," that showcased local bands.
Christina Coppola who produced and directed the show approached Bob to compose music for a documentary she was producing called "For Those We Remember." The show aired nationally, won a Cable Ace Award and was Bob''s first television credit away from Moisture.
Eventually Bob headed to Los Angeles and reincarnated Moisture with new members. At the release party for their self titled CD, a representative from the television show "https://www.tradebit.com" was in the audience and passed their CD to the head of A&R. Moisture was then invited to perform on their TV show which aired on the USA Network and Canada''s MUCH Music Network. Farmclub immediately offered Moisture a recording contract. Currently, Bob is writing songs and performs frequently on stage with Grammy winner poet/singer/songwriter Rod McKuen, best known for songs such as "Seasons In the Sun," " If You Go Away," and the oscar nominated "Jean." He''s also working with Grammy winner David Tyson, writer of the hit "Black Velvet" sung by Alannah Myles. On a soon to be released CD, Tony DeFranco of the famous DeFranco Family ["Heartbeat - It''s A Lovebeat"]and James Lee Stanley [ Known to many as the 5th Monkee ] have given a hand by singing on the back-up vocal tracks.
A prolific and dedicated writer/musician, Bob Gentry still manages to find time to write new songs, perform, and produce albums for others and for his biggest project now available ... his solo album, "Bob Gentry".
Bob currently resides in Hollywood, California. You can find further information about him on his website at:
