Storytelling Through Songwriting

At the age of four years old, Cora Rose Wood discovered her love for singing, cowboy poetry, and songwriting. Being raised on a ranch in southern Wyoming, Cora was no stranger to the way of life that served as cowboy poetry fodder and took to both horses and music with great ease. Accompanied by her supportive mother, Laurie Wood, Cora would get to attend many cowboy gatherings in several different states in the years that followed, including the National Cowboy Poetry Gathering in Elko, NV, and the Durango Cowboy Poetry Gathering in Durango, CO. In 2008, she released her album “Cora’s Cowgirl Yodel”, and was the Western Music Association’s Youth Yodeler of the Year in 2008 and 2010. In 2012, her family relocated to a ranch in southern Montana, where she became more involved in sports and symphonic band, playing the flute and piccolo. Her experiences with high school marching and symphonic band helped shape her appreciation for music as a whole and inspired her to attend Sheridan College in Sheridan Wyoming. In Spring of 2022, she graduated with her Associates of Fine Arts (Music), her Music technology Certificate and her Arts Administration Certificate. The music that she writes today is heavily influenced by her western upbringing and draws on all of her experiences to tell stories that are raw and relatable, while paying tribute to the way of life that she so cherishes.
