Sammy Brue has been dubbed a wunderkind and a prodigy by some, but he likes to think of himself as a normal 16-year-old. Still, there aren’t many teenagers with a brand-new feature-length record produced by the likes of John Paul White of The Civil Wars and Ben Tanner of Alabama Shakes.
I Am Nice hit stores this week and features a number of songs about struggling in and with relationships. Not a veteran of that sort of thing, Brue used myriad influences to write the 12 songs comprising the record.
While in town for a recent tour stop at The Grey Eagle, he gave Xpress and Acoustic Asheville an exclusive performance of four songs.
“I See, I Hear”
“Was I The Only One”
