Folk-grass marvel Sierra Hull in Wimberley this Saturday!

Sierra Hull is an absolutely amazing madolin player! As if that wasn't enough, she's an over all fantastic performer who writes most of her own music. Her 2016 release "Weighted Mind" received a Best Folk Album Grammy nomination. Sierra is busy touring the US this year, with 3 upcoming dates in Texas that include this Saturday (June 10) at Blue Rock Studios in Wimberley (as well as on Concert Window). She heads out at the end of June for a short European run.

"Sierra Hull has been recognized from age 11 as a virtuoso mandolin-player, astonishing audiences and fellow-musicians alike. Now a seasoned touring musician nearing her mid-20s, Hull has delivered her most inspired, accomplished, and mature recorded work to date; no small feat. Weighted Mind is a landmark achievement, not just in Sierra Hull's career, but in the world of folk-pop, bluegrass, and acoustic music overall. With instrumentation comprised largely of mandolin, bass, and vocals, this is genre-transcending music at its best, with production by Béla Fleck and special harmony vocal guests Alison Krauss, Abigail Washburn, and Rhiannon Giddens adding to the luster. Hull speaks eloquently, in her challenging and sensitive originals, her heartfelt vocals, and once again breaks new ground on the mandolin. Béla Fleck special guests on banjo on two tracks and duo partner, Ethan Jodziewicz, not only anchors the record on bass, but introduces us to a major new instrumental voice."

"I am so glad to have ended up being a part of this project." - Bela Fleck

"I think she’s endless. I don’t see any boundaries. Talent like hers is so rare, and I don’t think it stops. It’s round." - Alison Krauss

Josh Ward filling the charts, touring with Cody Johnson

Nashville, TN (June 5, 2017)-When taking a retrospective look at Josh Ward’s precipitous rise into the very coveted Texas music scene, it seems like his music is plugged into a perpetual power source that few newer artists are able to harness. His collective body of work spanning two full length albums has functioned like an inexhaustible machine amassing seven consecutive #1 hit singles on the Texas Regional Radio Chart. His latest album “Holding Me Together” picked up perfectly where his previous album left off with all four singles snagging the #1 spot, distinguishing him as a new generation heavy weight champion of old school country music. With the release of his new single “Change My Mind,” Ward continues his pace towards his next hit song, and also to new venue stages. Adding to his success at radio, his live show reputation has similarly turned hordes of music fans in his direction, and his peers have taken notice. In August 2017, Ward will accompany fellow honky tonker Cody Johnson on a West Coast tour, a perfect paring of authentic country music genius. Check tour dates here.

After a few years of cutting his teeth on the touring circuit, Ward truly found his stride in 2012 with the release of his first full length album “Promises,” produced by GRAMMY Award-winning producer, Greg Hunt. It seemed clear that radio had discovered their new banner artist in Ward with all five singles hitting the Top 20 on the Texas Music charts, three of those scoring #1’s-almost unheard of for a debut artist. Ward wrapped up 2013 as the Texas Regional Radio’s New Male Vocalist of the Year. When it came time to get back in the studio for his next album, Ward knew just where he was going…back to Rosewood Studios in Tyler, TX with the return of Greg Hunt behind the sound board. Their work on Ward’s third full length album “Holding Me Together” proved yet another triumphant collaboration. All four singles went to #1 on the TRRR Chart starting with “Highway,” and continuing with TRRR’s Song of the Year, “Whiskey & Whitley,” then “Somewhere Between Right & Wrong,” and finally with “Broken Heart.”

Through tenacity and hard work Josh Ward has grown into one of the most respected and appreciated musicians in the state. A well versed songsmith with a hauntingly traditional voice, his honest and visceral delivery of every song compels audiences to feel his lyrics with him as he takes them on his musical journey. From start to finish his latest album gives you the white-knuckle roller coaster ride Ward intended you to have. A thrill that translates meticulously to the stage with live performances that not only mirror the studio versions, but as a whole, has only one singular motive…to hold you hostage on the dance floor.
