Still working on that hot first release.



It all began with the Tascam Portastudio. For Asheville composer and musician William Gentry, it continues to be one of his prized possessions. “My dad bought it for me when I was 12”, he says. “We were at Mars music, and this was the floor model, unboxed, bought as-is. Everything since is a bigger version, but those childhood moments, playing with it in my room, are some of my most joyous.” It’s telling that, instead of a guitar or piano, Gentry points to a machine for mixing and layering as the catalyst for music. That image—Gentry tinkering on the Tascam—is emblematic of his ethos and sound, one that honours a swelling melodicism and spacious texture, one that values memory, nostalgia, and the place he calls home. 

William has worked heavily in film and television music since 2016 having composed the original score for the feature film Abacus Fell as well as the television series Stages. His music has been featured on many network and streaming television series including Dateline NBC, The Today Show, Jeff and Some Aliens, Backstage Lakers, MLB Network, Meat Eater, Catfish, Take Out, Clint Eastwood: A Cinematic Legacy and many more.
