Sammy Brue is a 13 year old folk singer from the Portland Oregon area. For Christmas 2011 his father bought him a guitar. He wanted to play songs by the late Woody Guthrie and Bob Dylan so he started learning chords to emulate these great musicians. Within 2 months he wrote his first song “The Woody Guthrie Song,” and from that day forward the 10 year old didn't look back. Fast forward a few years, and Sammy has a couple of records' worth of original songs under his belt and has opened for acts like Joe Fletcher, Lukas Nelson, Lydia Loveless, John Moreland, Asleep at the Wheel, and Hayes Carll. He finds inspiration in the Folk/Americana genre of music and has made some great friends in its community. As a one man band, this young Troubadour has won hearts all over the country, especially the Northwest where he travels around to play.
It's rare to find someone so young that's both talented and self-possessed, but despite his age, he's already become a mature songwriter and an excellent guitar player. We're proud to have him as part of The Loar family.
