We’re excited to be working with Tré Burt for the first time!

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’s debut album, was re-released on the label in January 2020. The album showcases Burt’s literary songwriting and lo-fi, rootsy aesthetic, which he honed busking on the streets of San Francisco and travelling the world in search of inspiration.

Like his label mate and songwriting hero 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 Under The Devil’s Knee features Our Native Daughter’s Leyla McCalla and Allison Russell, as well as LA-based songwriter Sunny War.

‘Singer-songwriter Tré Burt taps into a bit of early Bob Dylan’s stripped-down aesthetic on Undead God of War, singing a powerful hymn of protest accompanied only by acoustic guitar and harmonica’ – Rolling Stone

‘Caught It From the Rye takes a tried-and-true formula and injects it with a triple shot of black joy and heartbreak. Burt’s stories, be them freewheeling tales about watching time pass by or hyper-focused political screeds, represent a breath of fresh air in the Americana genre’ – Paste

Special guest is Jon Coley. An acoustic singer-songwriter, originally from Barton under Needwood, Staffordshire, now living in Chester and performing around the Northwest. Jon plays an eclectic mix of blues, soul and folk, mixed with fresh original songwriting, and is making a name for himself locally for his unique guitar playing and passionate vocal performances.
