Ben Tyree

Born:

Guitarist Ben Tyree has the power to move people. That statement could be construed in two distinctly opposite ways – either the buoyant groove to get audiences out of their seats or the emotional depth to touch a listener’s soul – but Tyree is the rare case where both meanings are equally applicable.

A product of the diverse Washington, DC music scene, Tyree is a performer and composer of virtuosic ability, infectious groove, and eclectic tastes. All of those elements are placed on stunning display on his latest release, Burn It! LIVE, a blistering live set from the Brooklyn Academy of Music’s prestigious BAMcafé Live series

Ben Tyree: Thoughtform Variations

Read "Thoughtform Variations" reviewed by Ian Patterson

Yet, in essence, these eight tracks share an equally wide arc of influences and the same spirit of adventure. Though not as ...

These original pieces were conceived eight years ...
