Taking after his heroes, Nikki Giovanni, Meshell Ndegeocello, Langston Hughes, Maya Angelou and especially, Gil Scott-Heron, TY SPOKEN SOUL has arisen to grab the mantle of socio-political spoken word to smooth, groovin' music and hard-hittin' R&B. Tyree Pope has always appreciated artists with cultural integrity. He began exploring poetry in the 8th grade writing a limerick, "The World" which was published in the Citywide Scholastic. As a teen, Tyree and his friends formed a band, playing R&B music in his friends living room. That band, Spectrum Of Sound, grew to playing all around the Tri-State area, culmulating in an appearance at the world famous Apollo Theater.
