John Prine’s Oh Boy Records Signs Tré Burt

Tré Burt

Tré Burt is the newest artist to sign to John Prine’s Oh Boy Records.

Burt is one of only two artists—including label-mate Kelsey Waldon, to have been signed to Prine’s Oh Boy Records in the past 15 years.

Oh Boy has released the video for the title track to Burt’s debut project Caught It From The Rye. The album is slated to release next year.

“The songs of mine I find most interesting to play are the ones I can’t remember writing. ‘Caught It From The Rye is’ one of those songs. I remember where I was though, and the conditions of that particular time. I was living out of a broken-down car during a warm summer in Portland, OR. I spent a lot of time hanging out in the forest brushes in Washington Park with my guitar. I had just found a fresh box of cigarettes someone must’ve dropped and was feeling pretty lucky all things considered. I sat down at the base of a tree and when I looked up I saw an unmistakable shape of a butterfly made by a break in the leaves and branches against the blue of the sky. The sun shot down on my lap. When I looked back down at my notebook I wrote the first line,”The sky then opened up and from it came a light,” After that, all I remember is rocking back and forth in the dirt in a state of hypnosis.”

He recently signed with High Road Touring for representation and will be touring alongside Haley Heynderickx this winter.
