Sierra Hull, Daybreak

Sierra Hull, Daybreak A splendid blend of contemporary songwriting and traditional bluegrass instrumentation, Sierra Hull's second album, Daybreak, is a tremendous accomplishment, sounding simultaneously current and traditional. Hull wrote seven of the 12 tracks and is, at a very young age, an extremely skilled writer, singer, and instrumentalist. Hull's mandolin playing is stunning. Her tone and precision are simply unbelievable considering that she's just 19 years old. And her vocals are as gorgeous and clear as any bluegrass singer today. Like Sarah Jarosz, Hull plays effortlessly with contemporary themes and structure while maintaining an aura of vintage-style authority and power. This is an impressive album and ups the ante over her already great debut album.
