To say that Sammy Brue is an old soul is an understatement. Last year, at just fourteen years old, Brue released his own EP I Don’t Want You To Leave: a collection of devastatingly beautiful songs that touch on heartbreak, jealousy, God and suicide. The release prompted Rolling Stone to declare the songwriter an “Americana Prodigy” and led to performances at Newport Folk Festival and Summerfest. Brue, a Portland, OR, native living in Nashville, first cut his teeth at age ten by busking on the sidewalk during Sundance Film Festival in Park City, UT. Looking to raise extra cash to buy more music gear, his stunning and sincere performances turned heads of famous actors, musicians and press alike, prompting the festival to invite him back every year since. With a reverent nod to early Dylan and Guthrie and more modern contemporaries Cobain, Justin Townes Earle, and Jason Isbell, Brue released his latest single “Once a Lover“ via ReverbNation CONNECT’s The Watch List. Now, newly signed to New West Records, Brue will head into the studio in Muscle Shoals, Alabama to record his first full length LP this June.
