Gentry Morris: American born singer and songwriter Gentry Morris follows last yearâ€™s five track single, The Bare Bones and Bad Ideas EP, with his brand new full length studio album entitled Awake â€˜Oâ€™ Sleeper, featuring eleven new songs.
The majority of this new record has been recorded in Northern Ireland with Gentry recruiting many of his friends from the local music industry, including his regular touring companion, Juliet Turner, to help and contribute to the recording.
This was an important factor for Gentry as Northern Ireland has now become a permanent home to him and the Northern Irish people in particular have been so receptive to his music.
For the last three years Gentry has lived in Northern Ireland where he is spreading his music through solo gigs and support slots.
He has regularly shared the stage with Juliet Turner, Ben Glover, Anthony Toner, Eilidh Patterson, Gareth Dunlop, Matt McGinn and numerous other local and international musicians.
In 2009 he was named Artist in Residence for the Cathedral Quarter Arts Festival.
