“I think she’s endless. I don’t see any boundaries. Talent like hers is so rare, and I don’t think it stops. It’s round.” So said Alison Krauss about Sierra Hull, who started playing mandolin at age 8 and was signed to Rounder Records by 13. Her debut album, Secrets, came out in 2008, when she was 16, and peaked at number 2 on the Billboard Top Bluegrass Albums chart. Her follow-up, Daybreak, hit in 2011 and “proved that she was more than a prodigy with excellent technique — she became a songwriter and bandleader, a mature artist at the ripe old age of 19. Weighted Mind, produced by Béla Fleck and released early in 2016, is a revelation. As NPR Music puts it: “Like her contemporary Sarah Jarosz, Hull has joined the rarefied company of Nickel Creek expats Chris Thile, Sara Watkins, and Sean Watkins, pedigreed virtuosos whose youthful, searching musical minds have taken them into postmodern singer-songwriter territory and beyond. Most of all, though, Hull’s made a stunning coming-of-age album and arrived at a new beginning in the process.”
