He went to LA to audition for "The Voice" but didn't make it. But those hours practicing Taylor Swift's "Style" eventually paid off. He saw a promo for a contest to become the musician-in-residence for the new building - Exhibit on Superior.
Gentry recorded the song and sent it in - he was picked as one of four finalists. The last leg was to perform live before a panel of judges, and he came out the winner. His prize was a brand new furnished studio apartment for a year - plus he gets to play for the residents for 30 hours a month, approximately 8 hours a week. This gives him time to work on his music plus keep his night-time gig at Howl at the Moon.
