Purpose-built to be, and mixed as, a dirty window on humanity, the stripped-down folk-band backing does nothing to hinder the raw fullness of the acoustic guitar.

Although something about that blithe and raspy baritone will give you hints of Ritchie Havens, lyrically there is a distinct presence that elevates this from a folk replay to a moment of clarity. This sound will get under your skin.

Purpose-built to be, and mixed as, a dirty window on humanity, the stripped-down folk-band backing does nothing to hinder the raw fullness of the acoustic guitar, and the vocal is left as it was meant to be: out in front. Telling it straight:

“I took a ride on a carousel
and it was off of it I fell
for far too long my mind’s been spinnin’
and its hard to keep on
Just for the sake of keepin’ on”— Tre Burt

Tre Burt is a folk singer from Sacramento, CA.
