Tré Burt Announces 2022 European Tour

Tré Burt announces an extensive European tour throughout April and May 2022, taking in London’s Lexington on 1st May. In addition to this, Tré’s critically acclaimed sophomore album ‘You, Yeah You’, released digitally earlier this year on John Prine’s Oh Boy Records, will receive its vinyl release in the UK on  17th December.

 

Tré Burt

From his humble roots working menial day jobs; as a maintenance technician, servicing aeroplanes at SFO International, taping boxes as a UPS worker, Burt has been, and always will be, a working-class musician. His clear-eyed vision of America, its deep faults, and the beauty of the humanity that resides within its borders comes through with compassion and tenacity.

Tré wrote his protest anthem, “Under The Devil’s Knee”, which features Allison Russell, Sunny War, and Leyla McCalla, in the late summer of 2020 in response to the murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Eric Garner, and the unmitigated police violence across the country. His work caught the attention of scholars and activists, namely Dr. George Yancy, Dr. Cornel West, and Dr. Khalil Muhammad, and garnered an invitation to speak on a panel with the latter two at Harvard’s Kennedy School through Dr. Muhammad’s Institutional Antiracism and Accountability Project.

Burt finds the exported packaging of Black culture en masse tiresome, claustrophobic, and boring, especially when applied to art and expression. Like literary writers Baldwin and Angelou, Burt acknowledges the limitless expanse of Black narrative. He is committed to the rich continuum of the tradition of Black expression claiming the space of artistic weirdness, often reserved for non-Black artists.

You, Yeah, You is a narrated collection of songs featuring a cast of invented characters; heroes, villains, those destitute of salvation, and those seeking it. The album represents a summoning of the will to fight the unknown rather than surrender to fear and fatigue. Like his late label mate and songwriting hero John Prine, Burt showcases his poet’s eye for detail, surgeon’s sense of narrative precision, and his songwriters’ ability to transpose observation into affecting verse.
