Influenced by such great songwriters as Simon & Garfunkel, Lennon and McCartney, Crosby, Stills, Nash and certainly Young, the duo of Ken Marvin and Brian Gentry, both from Kentucky, have been writing and recording together since their debut album on Milk ‘N Honey Records (Nashville, TN), in the 1980’s. It was the discovery by Dan Peek of the band, AMERICA, that would lead to a collaboration of the duo’s next four recordings and the formation of the Folk-Rock band, PEACE. Peek, who had a string of hits with AMERICA, found in Marvin & Gentry a kindred spirit and recorded numerous projects with them. Dan Peek passed away unexpectedly in July of 2011.

2017 marks the 30th anniversary of Marvin & Gentry’s debut album Safe Harbour, on Milk ‘N Honey Records. M & G will be accepting select tour dates for acoustic appearances and with band (featuring Paul Winkler drums and J. Palmer on bass). They will also be paying tribute to Dan Peek, their long time friend and collaborator.
