TRÉ BURT presents its new album 'Traffic Fiction' in Savona and Milan next spring!

Just over a month after the release of the album Traffic Fiction at Oh Boy Records - the label founded by the legendary John Prine - Tré Burt announces a tour that includes two dates in Italy: Tuesday 16 April 2024 at Raindogs House in Savona e Wednesday 17 April at the Arci Bellezza in Milan. I tickets for the date of Milan will be available from 10 am of tomorrow Tuesday 21 November on He says, while those for the Savona stage will go on sale on the circuit Musicglue in the coming days. Access to both concerts will also require the ARCI card.

Tré Burt was on a stage in Philadelphia in early 2023 when he got some bad news: his grandfather, a native of that very city, had passed away. This was not unexpected: for years, Tommy Burt had been coping with early dementia, and every time he saw him Tré he realised that another little piece of him had slipped away. The grandson had also started recording their last chats so that he could preserve those moments, however repetitive and fragmented they might be, before the possibility of having a conversation with his grandfather vanished forever. Traffic Fiction, the third album by Burt at Oh Boy Records - an unexpected musical reinvention deeply rooted in his new vision of classic soul - carries within itself a part of this relationship: the common thread linking the album's fourteen tracks is the music shared by grandfather and grandson.

The childhood of Burt in California has not been easy: due to his parents' divorce he is forced to move frequently between Sacramento and the Bay Area, listening to The Delfonics e Otis Redding, Marvin Gaye e The Temptations during long journeys in the company of his father. When he becomes a musician, he turns into a vagabond troubadour, who also draws on American folk and blues out of necessity: after all, there is no point in performing on the road with a full band behind you. These roots and compositional ambitions begin to emerge in 2021 in You, Yeah, Youthe first studio session of Burtand flourish in Traffic Fiction moving from the sweet country-soul surrealism of the title track to the rock of 2 For Tha Show.
