To say that Sammy Brue is an old soul is an understatement. Earlier this 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 Utah, first cut his teeth at age ten by busking on the sidewalk during Sundance Film Festival. 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 officially 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 releases his latest single “Once a Lover“ via ReverbNation CONNECT’s The Watch List.
