Publicity Material and Professional References
“Louis is a go-to guy for film and TV soundtracks. On this disc he demonstrates his versatility for several different styles and moods. Each track is short – just enough to put behind that tender moment on the TV drama or that car chase on the big screen”.
Jamie Anderson Indie-Music.com
"Lou is a great technical player on guitar and the other fretted instruments he plays. In turn, this allows him to play his music with expression and feeling. In addition to being a refreshing change, his music is still accessible to a mainstream audience".
Erik D. Unknown Radio.com
"Louis Gentile is a composer whose versatility is not only different but far more engaging then most. The honest and sensitive nature of his music is far above the norm. Being a first rate player of all types of guitars and related instruments provides him with a unique advantage for any type of score. After listening to some of his music I actually went away remembering a good portion of it.
The high level of production value of his Cds make it clear that Mr. Gentile can provide music for any professional envoirnment".
