Sammy Brue Shares Wistful Folk Song “Once A Lover”

A new single from the 14-year-old “Americana prodigy.”

November 20, 2015

Portland-born, Utah-based Sammy Brue released his EP I Don't Want You To Leave earlier this year. It's a collection of melancholy folk songs about heartbreak, jealousy, God, and suicide—some pretty heavy stuff, especially when you consider that Brue is only fourteen years old.

Despite being so young, Rolling Stone called him an "Americana prodigy," and he's already performed at Newport Folk Festival. Brue shares "Once A Lover" with us today, his latest single via ReverbNation CONNECT’s The Watch List. Brue told The FADER via e-mail that the track is "about finding love that endures time." He's got a long time to find a love that lasts, but in the meantime, stream the wistful "Once A Lover" below.
