Before she was IBMA's 2016 Mandolin Player of the Year, Sierra Hull popped into Old Settlers Music Festival in Austin, Texas, earlier this year for a Sitch Session of "Weighted Mind," the title track from her latest release. Hull gets a mountain of rightful praise for her picking skills, but she also deserves some credit for her singer/songwriter chops. "Should I lead? Should I lay low? If I ask you, will you even know? From the roof to the ground, these walls must come down," she sings with poise and purpose, working her way toward the mando licks that pack the real punch. Good stuff.
