Mandolin wunderkind Sierra Hull at work on third albumBy Dylan Owens | February 6th, 2013 | No Comments »
Though Sierra Hull’s essay-writing days are behind herâ€”she just graduated from the renowned Berklee College of Music last Mayâ€”her songwriting ones aren’t. According to her Facebook page, Hull is back in the studio to record a follow-up to 2011’s “Daybreak.”
Though details are scarce, Hull uploaded this photo of the recording space she and her Highway 111 band are holing up in.
Hull has played high-level bluegrass for the last 10 yearsâ€”and she only turned 21 last fall. At 11, she debuted at the Grand Ole Opry, the bluegrass equivalent of a Bat Mitzvah; by 13, she’d signed with Rounder records.
Since then, Hull has kept busy, recording a pair of albums for Rounder, playing mandolin for the likes of bluegrass legend Del McCoury and ceaselessly touring.
Watch Hull make her Grand Ole Opry debut with Allison Krauss & Union Station:
