Grammy Award nomination - Best Folk Album, 2016

"She plays the mandolin with a degree of refined elegance and freedom that few have achieved. And now her vocals and songwriting have matured to the level of her virtuosity."
- Béla Fleck

"There's not a lot here that you could call straight-ahead bluegrass ... dexterously deconstruct bluegrass templates ... Hull's arrangements and playing feel nimble and capricious, animating her introspection with fine-grained melodic details and pinprick exactness and she makes the most of her airy voice with clean, emotionally present phrasing ... Hull's made a stunning coming-of-age album and arrived at a new beginning in the process."
- NPR

First thrust into the spotlight at the age of 11 by Alison Krauss at the Grand Ole Opry, Sierra Hull had a record contract before her 14th birthday and grew up playing bluegrass, becoming known as a remarkable mandolin player, a tone-true vocalist and a recording artist of the highest order. Weighted Mind, almost entirely comprised of original songs from a now young adult Hull, redefines and stretches the limits of bluegrass. Produced by Béla Fleck, the album is a sparse and minimal affair: Hull's mandolin and voice is backed only by a bassist, Fleck's occasional banjo and guest vocalists Krauss, Abigail Washburn and Rhiannon Giddens.

"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

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
