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, (Sept. 2020) Under the Devil’s knee features Our Native Daughter’s Leyla McCalla and Allison Russell and L.A. 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.’
