Established in June 2014, GENTRI (The Gentlemen Trio) provide a rich, tenor sound in threepart harmonies. GENTRI is comprised of three highly trained tenors: Brad Robins, Casey Elliott, and Bradley Quinn Lever, who are known as the Gents. According to their official website, their signature sound of “Cinematic Pop” is “a fusion of lush, epic orchestrations coupled with rich, dynamic three part harmonies.”
In 2015, GENTRI released their selftitled debut album, “GENTRI,” which proved to be a resounding success, and ranked at No. 5 on Billboard’s Classical Chart and No. 3 on the Classical Crossover Chart. Following the album’s debut, the group released their first music video for their original single “Dare,” which featured 8-year-old amputee dancer, Alissa Sizemore, and made national news.
GENTRI also performs with notable artists, such as internationally acclaimed tenor Alfie Boe, Tony Award-winning performer Idina Menzel, rock band Journey (at the largest Fourth of July celebration in Utah, the Stadium of Fire), and the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. With an ability to take command of the stage, GENTRI provides warm, rich harmonies that inspire and uplift.
The three Gents met in the Spring 2014 production of Les Misérables at the Hale Center Theater. After an overwhelmingly positive response from audiences, Elliot’s wife had the idea for the three men to join forces. Donning sports coats and pocket squares, the men decided to “bring gentlemen back,” as well as focusing on uplifting and encouraging others.
In describing GENTRI, Deseret Book A&R director, Bart Olson, said, “They want to represent to the world how to look and act like a gentleman through their presence and music, as there is a lack of examples in the public eye. They want to show that being a gentleman doesn’t have to be a lost art.”
In describing his experience in GENTRI, Casey Elliott explains, “I can’t think of a more fulfilling aspect of our mortal existence than to be doing something that brings joy and happiness to your life and to others as well. For me, that joy stems from the powerful mediums of music and storytelling.”
In 2016, GENTRI released their second album, “Rise,” which can be found on iTunes, Spotify, and YouTube.
