Take a listen to cuts like “Beautiful Disaster” or “Thunderstorms” from their full-length album, Nice To Meet You…, and you will understand why the sister duo Adelee & Gentry is quickly developing a reputation as one of the fastest rising acts in music today. All the pieces are in place. They have the harmony, the songs, the looks, and the stage presence to become a force in the business.
For Adelee Gates it was love at first strum.
“A friend came over and showed me a few chords on my grandpa’s guitar. From then on, playing was an everyday thing.” she remembers, “I was always playing.” Adelee Gates was ten.
Gentry, her younger sister, had to be coaxed into the spotlight. But just like Adelee, once she got a taste of it she was hooked.
This led to other creative outlets. “When I started to write songs, I didn’t think it was anything special or unique,” Adelee recalls, “It just came out of me.”
Music has been coming out of the Gates family household for some time. Growing up the Gates girls were always around music. Adelee & Gentry’s father, James, played drums and some bass. He built a basement studio in which the sisters would later take up residence. One year he got them a 24 track recorder for Christmas on which they recorded their demo CD, Beginnings.
