Sacramento singer-songwriter Tre Burt went from sleeping in his car and busking on the street, to being signed to John Prine’s Oh Boy Records, which re-released his 2018 album Caught It From The Rye early last year.
The Prine and Dylan influences are obvious in both presentation and in Burt’s storytelling and songwriting – but in total, Burt is his own artist.
An album of songs motivated from a world that has been flipped on its head, this is Burt’s clear-eyed vision of the beauty and the faults of people and society. He draws our attention to it all, while offering some hope. You, yeah, you – who else is he talking to?
You, Yeah, You by Tre Burt is out now via Cooking Vinyl.
