Sacramento songwriter Tré Burt's sophomore album, You, Yeah, You is a narrated collection of songs featuring a cast of invented characters; heroes, villains, those destitute of salvation and those seeking it. The plots merge or an ultimate reckoning with the archetypal mother of these songs on the final track, "Tell Mary", "say what you want, it's alright child / little's left behind / beating the drum at the wrong time / look at what you've done." 

Like a bruised fighter, Burt goes 12 rounds in the ring against a shapeshifting and seemingly otherworldly opponent. The album represents a summoning of will to fight the unknown rather than surrender to fear and fatigue. Like his late label mate and songwriting hero John Prine, Burt showcases his poet's eye for detail, surgeon's sense of narrative precision and his songwriter's ability to transpose observation into affecting verse. You, Yeah, You is a cohesive body of work that illustrates the ever expanding space in which Tré Burt's voice belongs.
