Show Notes

You can't have a conversation with Tyree Woods without leaving with a smile on your face. The man with the infectious smile and positive attitude has had his share of trials and tribulations. During this episode of the OE podcast, Tyree describes growing up in Muskegon Heights, MI  as a biracial kid, and how foster care helped him forge the resiliency necessary to adapt to a Army life.  A veteran of two combat tours in Afghanistan, Tyree describes the bonds formed through combat and why the loss of that brotherhood after leaving the Army led him to create his current band, Buffalo Commons. Along the way, Tyree gives us a taste of his "Soulgrass" style with songs that are "just poems put to music":

Cannonball Jones: A song about an urban Robin Hood
Monday : A song about a life-changing event in Afghanistan in 2012
Tangled: A song about living life in the moment

If you enjoy Tyree's music, you can find him in the Steamboat Springs, CO area.
