Lisa Gentile Career
As a child, she had the distinction of being trained by her idol, Liza Minnelli. She began creating her own music with her father when she was 16 years old, and her first studio recording, Just When I Thought the Rain Would End, has been remastered and is one of the songs on “Start Flying.” Lisa was able to play two of her original songs on the popular network television competition Star Search, which was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
Gentile is a true artist and performer, a talented and experienced vocalist with an eclectic collection of original songs that seamlessly bridge the genres of pop, country, rock, and soul to create her one-of-a-kind style. Her charming stage presence is noted for instantly quieting a room with her first notes and capturing the hearts of audiences. She is sometimes referred to as “the older Taylor Swift” because she writes from the heart and plays from the hip. Her songs are her stories, and she’s lived long enough to know what she’s talking about. Her songwriting is infused with a refreshing conviction born of a lot of love, a lot of hurt, and a whole lot of grace.
Gentile’s highly anticipated new album is titled “Start Flying.” Each of the 11 tracks was composed entirely by the artist. Lisa created the entire album with the help of Adam Box (Brothers Osborne), a Nashville producer and drummer who co-produced seven of the eleven songs in his studio, the Gilded Palace in Nashville. At the famed Dreamland Recording Studios in Woodstock, NY, Lisa continued producing those tracks and added three additional original songs to the album. Lisa included Just When I Thought The Rain Would End as a bonus track, a powerful tribute to her late father and veteran Motown producer Mickey Gentile, who created the song when she was 16 years old at New York City’s legendary Nola Recording Studios.
By the age of 15, she was recording her original songs in professional studios all throughout New York City, as well as doing voiceover work, jingles, and background vocals. She soon found herself in national advertisements, TV specials, and stage and musical plays. Lisa has collaborated with award-winning producers and musicians in the studio and on stage. Her big break came nearly soon after college, when producer Keith Diamond spotted her at The Bitter End. They started working on her first major label album, but Keith died abruptly of a heart attack, putting the project on hold. To say the least, she was heartbroken, but it didn’t stop her.
She finished the songs and gave them to producer Dave Greenberg, who put them on her first CD, “Becoming,” which sold over 10,000 physical copies on stages across the country and caught the attention of NPR and radio stations all over the world. Her follow-up EP “Three” featured two tracks that went to number one on the MP3 charts twice, and her LP “A Country Compilation” earned a SAMMY for Best Country Record in 2007.
After hearing a work-tape of Lisa’s song “Shine,” which was inspired by her grandmother, Robbie Robertson, the head of Music Supervision at DreamWorks Films at the time, became interested in her. She was requested to fly to Los Angeles to record a demo with Sarah McLachlan, Bryan Adams, and others in order to be considered for the theme song for the film “Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron.” Bryan Adams was given the role, but it led to a production deal that was never completed.
Lisa isn’t afraid to speak out about her #metoo experiences in the music industry, summing it up in her rock forward song Guys Like You, which was strategically released one week before Election Day 2020 and the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment, which secured women’s right to vote in the United States Constitution.
