Yukon musician returns to Homer with eclectic set

If you plugged in “Gordon Tentrees” to an online music radio program, it might start out with something from his last album, “Less is More.” But, as computer algorithms go, the station might throw in songs that evoke the Whitehorse, Yukon Territory singer-songwriter: Bob Dylan, Woody Guthrie and John Prine, all singers Tentree has been compared to. But then you might get some blues acts like Muddy Waters or BB King, straying firmly into Whiskey Tango Foxtrot territory.

Picture us loving life — together

I do the most writing at night. Head on the pillow. Brain swarming with thoughts. My jaw tightens and — rather than rest, the restless thoughts crowd in. So I start writing in my mind, putting the thoughts in place. Explaining them to myself. Practicing the explanation to others. This one in particular keeps me up at night.
