Talk about talent.
The ability to play and sing bluegrass oozes out of Sierra Hull. CMT pointed me in the direction of another great Sierra Hull song from her latest album. This is another song that will blow you away and leave you wondering how far this Sierra will go in the music world.
Listen to Tell Me Tomorrow by Sierra Hull…
Tell Me Tomorrow by Sierra Hull
We first looked at Sierra Hull a few weeks back here on CML. That was only a month ago. It was the first time I’d heard of Sierra, but in just over a month’s time I’ve heard much more about this rising music star.
It seems Sierra is really starting to see things snowball in her career. All you have to do is listen to her songs on the radio or watch her sing and play live like the video above. It’s truly something special happening as you watch the way she plays away on her mandolin and sings with the voice of an angel.
The comparisons will fly about Alison Krauss, but it looks like Sierra Hull will find herself in her own company as time goes by. She just seems to talented, confident, and passionate about her music and those are the ingredients for success.
And to top everything off Sierra can write a great song. Just before the video she mentions she wrote Tell Me Tomorrow with her father. The song is about a woman holding on to the lasts strands of a relationship. Things must have gone wrong somewhere and she can sense her man is about to tell her goodbye for good this time. She’s hanging in there through the last second though as she tries to push the final goodbye off until tomorrow.
Something to understand about most bluegrass music is the lyrics often tell an entire story with very few words. With this song we really don’t get bogged down with a ton of words. The words we do hear in the song are important, though, and the song hits home as we feel every bit of emotion the narrator feels as they come to the realization that life is about to change.
Top that all off with some of the best musicianship you’ll hear anywhere and you have a great country and bluegrass song.
Go Sierra Go!
