Joining Maggie Rose for the first episode of Salute the Songbird’s second season is singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Sierra Hull. Sierra talks about her first Grand Ole Opry experience, discovering her sound as an artist, and working with inspiring women like longtime idol Alison Krauss.
In her first 25 years alone, Sierra Hull hit more milestones than many musicians accomplish in a lifetime. After making her Grand Ole Opry debut at the age of 10, the Tennessee-bred virtuoso mandolinist played Carnegie Hall at age 12, then landed a deal with Rounder Records just a year later. Now at 28, Hull is set to deliver her fourth full-length for Rounder: an elegantly inventive and endlessly captivating album called 25 Trips.
Salute the Songbird features candid conversations with Rose’s female musical heroes about their lives in and out of music, challenging the status quo, and with a desire to offer guidance for young artists starting their careers. Season Two will feature guests such as Grammy nominee Hannah Hooper of Grouplove, Noelle Scaggs of Fitz And The Tantrums, Kelly McCartney host of Record Bin Radio, singer-songwriter Shannon McNally, Grammy nominee Amythyst Kiah, singer-songwriter Valerie June and other female musicians, songwriters, producers, and industry mavens who detail their triumphs, struggles and how they continue to succeed as women in the music industry.
