Gentry Counce

Artist Information

Soulful, yet contemporary— delicate, yet fierce— youthful, but full of old world soul—these phrases describe not only the voice and character of Gentry Counce, but also her unique guitar style. Counce, now a fixture of the Oklahoma music scene, has her sights set on the region and beyond. She is truly an artist on the cusp of success. For well over four years Gentry’s nose has been to the grindstone. Carving herself a space in Oklahoma entertainment.

A true veteran of the stage and road, Gentry has courted major success for some time now. She’s no stranger to Nashville, or the grueling life of touring. Moving from Edmond, Oklahoma, to Nashville, Tennessee, in 96′ when she was twelve years old. After being pulled out of school at a young age, where she had already learned to play violin in orchestra, she went on the road with her two older sisters, ‘Ashley and Alexia’, for two years. Counce experienced early the painful lifestyle of the singing road, cushioned by the willingness of her sisters band mates to teach her how to play guitar.

Her early years spent in the shadows of her sisters’ burgeoning career, she honed her own unique craft in a one bedroom apartment, co-occupied by her family of six. Gentry Counce became a singer, a songwriter, and a musician in her own right, learning to play her guitar in the closet so as not to bother her older brother and sisters. Not yet old enough for bars, clubs, and casinos, Gentry played them anyway, always practicing guitar while hiding in the green room. Gentry would use this time to learn how to belt out a song and steal the show. On one such occasion Gentry secretly filled in for her older sister Ashley when she was too sick to sing for a contracted Casino in Biloxi, Mississippi. She was only fourteen years old. Gentry and her sisters opened for major artists like George Jones, Jose Feliciano, Confederate Railroad, Bad Company & Glen Campbell. Gentry recorded her first demo in Nashville by seventeen, at eighteen years she led her band to perform for the Nashville Predators hockey team at the Gaylord Arena.

Song inducing ups-and-downs strewn throughout her personal life and career, Gentry has more than a snakes-in-a-bag repertoire of songs that span the terrain of hope, heartbreak, social observation and autobiography. These songs, like the artist, are strikingly unique in their beauty, yet grounded in the realism of the world’s way. Part prayer, part world-weariness is the tone of this truly gifted artist, whose guitar, a D50 sunburst GUILD guitar named ‘Humpty Dumpty’, carries the same likened tone. Humpty, like his owner, has been scarred, healed, and rebuilt again and again, a true physical metaphor for Gentry and her life’s story.

Now a household name spreading like wildfire throughout Oklahoma City and the greater region, Counce is preparing to record what will be her first full length studio album. Gentry looks forward to conquering the known world with her voice, her words, and guitar.
