Local Music: Sammy Brue

May 19, 2016

Rolling Stone has called Ogden-based singer-songwriter Sammy Brue an “Americana prodigy.” He started playing music at 10 years old when he got a guitar for Christmas. He cut his teeth on tunes by Bob Dylan and Woody Guthrie, and in two months he was writing his own songs. Well, Sammy’s 15 now. He’s put out an EP record, gained acclaim at music festivals across the country, and signed a record deal with a Nashville label. He’ll join us Thursday to play some music and talk about his budding career.

Sammy Brue is playing a show on May 27 at 6 P.M. at The Heavy Metal Shop in Salt Lake City DETAILS. On May 31, he’s sharing a bill with Nashville singer-songwriter Aaron Lee Tasjan at The Acoustic Space, also in Salt Lake City DETAILS.

Sammy Brue’s debut EP record “I Don’t Want You to Leave” came out last year. In March, he signed a record deal with the Nashville record label New West. Later this year he’ll record a full-length studio album, produced by John Paul White of The Civil Wars and Ben Tanner of the Alabama Shakes, in Muscle Shoals, Alabama.
