The lyrical agility Sierra Hull displays on this set is an ideal complement to that contained in her acknowledged instrumental brilliance.  The one-time mandolin wunderkind here artfully navigates the tricky traverse connecting the highly personal tale with engaging tunefulness.  This feat is further enhanced by Ms. Hull’s superlative interplay with her primary partner, bassist Ethan Jodziewicz and subtle, smart orchestration throughout.  Standouts in a most impressive set include “Stranded”, “Compass” and “Birthday”.  Alison Krauss and producer Bela Fleck guest.
