Tré Burt plots European tour for October/November 202128-10-2020
Tré Burt is a singer-songwriter based in Sacramento, California signed to John Prine's Oh Boy Records in 2019. Caught It From The Rye Tré Burt’s debut album, was re-released on the label January 31, 2020. The album showcases Burt's literary songwriting and lo-fi, rootsy aesthetic, which he honed busking on the streets of San Francisco and traveling the world in search of inspiration.
Like his label mate and songwriting hero John Prine, Burt has a poet's eye for detail, a surgeon's sense of narrative precision and a folk singer's natural knack for a timeless melody. Caught It From the Rye is an urgent missive from an important new voice in songwriting. Tre's most recent single - September 2020 - Under the Devil's Knee features Our Native Daughter's Leyla McCalla and Allison Russell and L.A. songwriter Sunny War:
Burt was drawn to music from an early age. He was raised with his grandfather's passion for soul music, like the Temptations, Nina Simone, Otis Redding and Marvin Gaye. A school project on Woody Guthrie opened his eyes to the power of folk songwriting. And he discovered one of his songwriting heroes, Neil Young, through his older brother, Joey.
It's been a whirlwind year for Burt, who — in typically prolific fashion — is already thinking ahead (and writing ahead) to his future albums with Oh Boy. In the meantime, though, he's happy to have found an artistic home that suits his passion. And we're excited to share his first European dates of October/November 2021:
