Sierra Hull, one of the true virtuosos in acoustic music, has been in the spotlight since playing with Alison Krauss at age 13 at the Grand Ole Opry. Now with six International Bluegrass Music Award "Mandolinist of the Year" nominations, she's one of the biggest stars in bluegrass.
Boundaries—age, genre or otherwise—don't hamper an artist like Sierra Hull. As a player, a singer and a songwriter, Sierra has remarkable range, the potential to win over ears unfamiliar with Bill Monroe and give performances of broad cultural importance, as she's done at Carnegie Hall, the Kennedy Center and the National Prayer Breakfast. In May 2011, Sierra completed a two-year degree at Berklee College of Music in Boston on a full, Presidential Scholarship. Matt Glaser—head of Berklee's American Roots Music Program—put it this way: "She has no limitations as a musician."
"I can't say enough about Sierra Hull…Sierra is truly a beautiful and talented gift to this world, so special and unique. Daybreak is an awakening."
Ryan Harris Brown
Nashville based singer/songwriter, Ryan Harris Brown, uses his love of intimate storytelling and his expert, classic musicianship, to create songs that are both thought provoking and unforgettable. Influenced by songwriters such as John Mayer, Ben Folds, and James Taylor, Ryan strives to take his listeners on a journey of his own self-discovery, growth, love, and adventure, while inviting listeners to reflect on their own along side him.
After the release of his EP, Wave Goodbye, Wave Hello in 2013, Ryan was busy touring and sharing his music across the country. He continued writing, wanting to build off of, what he considers WGWH to be, a personal introduction and a collection of songs about acceptance and progression.
Furthering his examination of time and personal development, Ryanʼs debut full length album, Stranded in The Present Tense, (Spring 2017) chronicles the next chapter of his life. The recording of this album was delayed by almost a year, as Ryan dealt with severe medical concerns, which kept him in and out of the hospital. Ryan celebrated his recovery by returning to studios in both Portland, OR, and Nashville, TN, in 2016 to create the album. Featuring acclaimed artists and musicians such as 2017 Grammy nominated, Sierra Hull (Best Folk Album of the year), Nir Z (John Mayer, Jason Mraz, Geneses), and David LaBruyere (John Mayer), and co-produced with Gus Berry, a fellow Berklee graduate, this album continues to showcase Ryanʼs guitar vocabulary and relatable songwriting.
With health complications behind him, Ryan is looking forward to sharing this new release with people across the country. In this words of his single, “Begin,” “As one thing ends, something new begins.”
