Sierra Hull, the singer, mandolinist and former child prodigy, signed with Rounder at age 13 and distinguished herself by becoming the first bluegrass musician to receive a Presidential Scholarship to the prestigious Berklee College of Music.

Now a seasoned touring musician nearing her mid-20s, Hull has delivered her most inspired, accomplished, and mature recorded work to date; no small feat. Weighted Mind is a landmark achievement, not just in Sierra Hull's career, but in the world of folk-pop, bluegrass, and acoustic music overall. With instrumentation comprised largely of mandolin, bass, and vocals, this is genre-transcending music at its best, with production by Béla Fleck and special harmony vocal guests Alison Krauss, Abigail Washburn, and Rhiannon Giddens adding to the luster. Hull speaks eloquently, in her challenging and sensitive originals, her heartfelt vocals, and once again breaks new ground on the mandolin. Béla Fleck special guests on banjo on two tracks and duo partner, Ethan Jodziewicz, not only anchors the record on bass, but introduces us to a major new instrumental voice.


  As  a  teenager,  Scott  picked  up  the  bass  guitar  on  a  whim.  Natural  talent   and  the  lure  of  a  challenge  drove  him  to  be  the  best  musician  he  could  and   discover  his  love  for  singing,  songwriting  and  the  upright  bass.  With  the   encouragement  of  his  teacher,  he  went  on  to  study  music  in  college.

Scott  moved  to  Nashville  after  school,  and  he  would  meet  American  music   icon  Ricky  Skaggs  and  join  his  Grammy  winning  band,  Kentucky  Thunder.  He   toured  with  Ricky  for  five  years,  and  in  that  time,  first  started  writing  songs   on  his  upright  bass.

He  has  shared  the  stage  with  some  of  the  greatest  artists  of  modern  music,   such  as:  Alison  Krauss,  Barry  Gibb  of  the  BeeGees,  Bruce  Hornsby,  Brad   Paisley,  Peter  Frampton,  Steven  Curtis  Chapman,  Emmylou  Harris,  Dave   Barnes,  Ben  Rector,   and  many  more.

Scott’s  songs  have  received  honors  or  been  featured  in  NPR’S  Tiny  Desk   Contest,   the  International  Songwriting  Competition,  John  Lennon   Songwriting  Contest,  and  American  Songwriter  Magazine’s  30th  Anniversary   Contest,  and  he  has   had   numerous  cuts  on  other   artists’   albums.

He’s  currently  touring  in  support  of  his  September  release,  Top  Of  The   Stairs  (EP),  which  was  produced  by  himself,  Charlie  Peacock  (The  Civil  Wars,   The  Lone  Bellow)  Gary  Paczosa  (Alison  Krauss,  Sarah  Jarosz),  and  Shani   Ghandi  (Sarah  Jarosz).
