TRUETT’s debut single “Be Mine” is out January 1st on his new label home, Brooklyn Basement Records. The Atlanta native signed to the label in the summer of 2015 and spent the fall writing and developing his unique sound alongside one of the label’s founders, Ron Pope. TRUETT will celebrate the launch of the single with his very first show in New York City on January 9th, and will then take his show on the road supporting Pope’s headlining tour across Europe and the U.S.
“Be Mine” was penned in Nashville with Pope and later recorded in New York City at Flux Studios where it was engineered by Grammy award winner, Ted Young (Rolling Stones, Kurt Vile, Israel Nash). Brooklyn musicians Paul Hammer (Savoir Adore) and Andrew Pertes (Savoir Adore, Penguin Prison) also lent their talents to the project.
“Writing songs is one of the hardest things to do in my opinion,” says the singer, and adds, “when a track like Be Mine falls together so simple the way it did, it makes doing what I do incredibly rewarding.”
While it may seem that he sprung from nowhere, TRUETT has, in fact, been steadily building a following in the southeast for many years, and is now ready to unleash his talents on a global audience with this thundering debut single.
