Divus Julius presents: Sammy Brue

Since Sammy Brue released his debut album I Am Nice in 2017 , the now-18-year-old Utah singer-songwriter has been hailed as an “Americana prodigy” by Rolling Stone, as a “wunderkind” by American Songwriter, been labeled one of the “teenagers shaping pop” by The New Yorker; and performed at the Newport Folk Festival and played shows with the likes of Lucinda Williams, Lukas Nelson and Hayes Carll.

Sammy Brue has been writing songs since the age of 10. After receiving an acoustic guitar from his father for Christmas, he quickly embraced the instrument and began learning the songs of Bob Dylan and Woody Guthrie. Since writing his first song (a fingerpicked, autobiographical tune titled “The Woody Guthrie Song”) at the age of 11, Brue has released three homespun EPs, a debut album, I Am Nice, a 2018 EP, Down with Desperation and his sophmore album Crash Test Kid.
