His days could be filled with family, hockey, skiing, running or he just might hit the road and tour through small towns and cities where he brings the characters and the character of the road to music. His newest project features Jaxson Haldane on a CD called Grit, showcasing the real, raw sound of a Gordie Tentrees performance. Since 2014 he's played 550 shows in 11 different countries, but when you meet him you feel like he's your good neighbor friend who plays music at your favorite hole in the wall.
