Tré Burt Announces ‘Caught It From The Rye’ Album & Shares Single


Singer-songwriter Tre Burt announced his debut album, Caught It From The Rye, and shared the title track, which came with an accompanying video. The new album arrives on January 31 via John Prine’s Oh Boy Records.

Hailing from the Pacific Northwest, Burt came to Prine’s attention via Oh Boy Records’ Jody Whelan. It’s worth noting that Prine has only signed two artists to Oh Boy in the past 15 years, with Burt being one of them. The singer-songwriter spoke about the song, “Caught It From The Rye,” in a statement:

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.
