Sierra Hull has been recognized from the age of eleven as a musical prodigy and virtuoso mandolin player, astonishing audiences and fellow musicians alike.
Singer, mandolinist, and former child prodigy Sierra Hull signed with Rounder Records at age thirteen and soon became known as a remarkable mandolin player, a tone-true vocalist, and a recording artist of high order. She made two acclaimed albums and performed at the White House, Carnegie Hall, and the Kennedy Center. Hull also distinguished herself by becoming the first bluegrass musician to receive a presidential scholarship to the prestigious Berklee College of Music.
In 2016, Hull released a new album, Weighted Mind, produced by fifteen-time Grammy-winner Béla Fleck. The recording features eleven compelling new compositions written or cowritten by Hull and one traditional tune for which she and Fleck provided a new arrangement. While Hull’s ethereal voice and fluid playing take center stage here, she receives ample support from bass marvel Ethan Jodziewicz. Fleck’s banjo adorns the elegant “Queen of Hearts / Royal Tea,” and Alison Krauss, Abigail Washburn, and Rhiannon Giddens add enchanting harmonies.
