(Five Stars) With melodies and harmonies that evoke those of America, The Byrds and early CS&N, the Kentucky-bred duo of Ken Marvin and Brian Gentry show off their very own skills crafting listener-hooking turns of phrase and choruses one is singing along with on the second go-round.  Airplay-worthy tracks abound including “Wishful Thinking”, “Without You” and “Great Divide”.  Production is first rate. ” - Duane Verh (Review of Songs From Gholson Road)

Roots Music Report

Marvin & Gentry Take it To a New Level I've been a follower of the music Ken Marvin and Brian Gentry since their debut album "Safe Harbour" many years ago, and have long appreciated the maturation of their work both musically and lyrically with each passing record. But with the Americana-infused "Songs from Gholson Road," this duo has taken it to a new level. Songs like "Pieces of Julie," "Wishful Thinking," "Bluebird" and "Thinkin' About You" show an artistry that matches up with just about anything I listened to in the singer-songwriter/folk rock era of yesterday or the Americana scene of today. I highly recommend this album. ” - Jeff Crosby (Review of Songs From Gholson Road)

Excerpt from Dan Peek's last interview I also started working with two guys that I had met in Nashville back in the CCM days, Ken Marvin and Brian Gentry. They really, really wanted to form a trio and we did. I called it ‘Peace’ and we made, I think, three albums all together. It was great! It was kind of like Dewey and Gerry only they were Christians. They were both so very talented as songwriters and musicians – even in the production department. There were times that they would bring them to me and go, ‘Do we need to change anything?’ and I’m, like, ‘It’s fine. You don’t need to change a thing. Just slap it on the record and it’s done. It’s ready to go!’ That really, in some ways, filled a void that I felt coming out of the trio experience. It wasn’t that I needed to be. At first, I was relieved to get out of the band. When I first got out of America, I just wanted to be ‘Mr. Solo’. But, then, later on I missed the camaraderie of other guys. I had put together three or four different groups of musicians that I toured with over the years. But, in terms of doing creative stuff like recording, Ken and Brian, which I dubbed ‘Peace’, that was a really nice break for me and, again, it took the pressure off of me having to write 10 or 12 songs to fill a CD. Both of them were prolific – especially Brian – a songwriting machine and they were good songs! I just thought that these dudes deserved to be heard. They begged me to manage them and I go, ‘Look, I am not a manager. I’m the creative type.’ That was all part of that ‘after America’ experience and one of the more pleasant aspects of the post-America thing was working with Ken and Brian. There’s a lot of music that we made together that I would love to see get out there but it’s such a rat race now. It’s the old joke: How do you make a million dollars in the music business? You start out with two.   I contacted Marvin and Gentry after news of Dan’s passing had made the news and asked them for their reflections on their friend. Brian Gentry, speaking for both he and Ken, said, "We met Dan in 1987 and the history of that is recorded in our bio (MarvinandGentry.com). I remained in constant communication with Dan up until his death. Needless to say, was surprised to hear the news. We are all still in shock and trying to come to grips with his passing. Dan was more than a musical influence and collaborator, he was a great friend. He has been there for me through all my ups and downs and was the kind of friend that I could share my innermost thoughts with. Although we were always talking on the phone and through email, I recently spent a week with him at the Orchard, his home recording studio in Missouri. I was promoting a solo project that Ken produced at the time and was on my way to a gig in St. Louis. Dan and I hung out like old times and had several heart to heart conversations. That visit turned out to be the last time that we shared together. Our fondest memories will be all the times we spent at The Orchard with Dan and Catherine making the Peace records in the 90's up through the early 2000's. It was a magical time that Ken Marvin and I will always cherish. Dan was one of the funniest guys I have ever known. He had such a great sense of humor and was always finding a way to lighten things up with his sharp wit. We are so grateful for the years we shared together. He will be deeply missed.
