"James McMurtry with Lady and Gent"

"Dana Sorensen's tender, thoughtful harmonies and demure stage presence complemented Garret Williams's false starts, manic expressions and hoarse, nervous vocals. Williams's charming melodies and considerate, self-aware lyrics helped answer the question of why she stays with the S.O.B." - herecomesthedumptruck.com

Bio

In their first year, Lady & Gent already has a lot of people talking. comparing them to the Avett Brothers, Mumford & Sons, Jimmy Buffet or Ray LaMontagne. Some call their music Folk, some call it Country, and others call it Indie. The band members themselves argue that Americana/Folk is probably the best categorization but are quick to add that fitting into a generic mold has never been their priority. Lady & Gent has quickly built a reputation for producing genuine emotion in their songs, delivered directly from the hearts of real people with real pains, real joys, real questions and real hopes.

Despite a seemingly abrupt arrival to the music scene, Lady & Gent’s foundations extend back much earlier. Frontman Garret Williams had a passion for music since childhood, but didn’t learn to play an instrument until age 20. While living in South America, he found an old guitar in the back room of his small house and asked his roommate to teach him a few chords. Garret quietly developed his musical ability for a few years before writing his first song, “By the Ocean,” in secret. He kept his songwriting to himself for another year before beginning to show up alone to open-mic nights at various venues around Utah. Before long he began to gain a reputation for performing well-crafted songs with fresh, raw feeling.

Lady and Gent formed in April 2011 with Garret Williams, his brother Ben, Dana Sorenson, and Chris White. They gained a strong local following having opened for national acts like Kalai, Griffin House, and Isaac Russell. In early 2013 they toured with James McMurtry and Angel Taylor.

They were recently featured on americansongwriter.com as the Daily Discovery and Garret was selected as a finalist in Martin Guitar and American Songwriter's Pub Deal Contest.

Lady and Gent prides themselves in writing songs from the honest place of not so perfect hearts. They are songs wrought from personal experiences, songs about true happiness and true sadness, real love and feigned love, long lives and tragically short lives. They are songs that hit you in the heart and linger in your soul.
