Tre Burt - "Santiago"

I first discovered Tre Burt opening for Haley Heynderickx in Providence, and I've been a fan ever since. On his latest single, "Santiago," Burt has released a rollicking folk rocker. It's a fun and upbeat song that is surprisingly keyboard heavy. It's reminding me of early Wilco. It's fitting since the song is about Burt's relationship with his grandfather, Santiago, who passed away earlier this year. It's a beautiful tribute to a beloved family member that focuses more on the joy the two shared instead of mourning. "Santiago" is the kind of song that will make you instantly want to hear more.

Tre Burt says of his new song:

The song actually started out as a writing prompt that my friend gave me over the phone during my solo writing retreats at the cabin. She said ‘write about Santiago’ and it ended up being a good stage to talk about some heartache I was going through. But it wasn’t just heartache, there was also a lot of joy which is why it sounds upbeat, I guess.
