The album consists of 12 songs and has already received positive reviews, with one critic saying the album proves that Brue has a “natural songwriting gift.”

Brue’s next concert in Utah is set for July 6 in Salt Lake City at the Red Butte Garden Amphitheatre, as he will be an opener for Kenny Wayne Shepherd.
