JBM Promotions and Memorial Hall Present Sierra Hull with Gabe Lee

Sierra Hull is widely regarded to be a as a master of her instrument; A two-time Grammy-Nominated artist and songwriter, recognized for both her most recent projects, 25 Trips (2020)and Weighted Mind (2016), she is also the 4x recipient of IBMA’s Mandolin Player of the Year,the first woman to ever receive this distinction. A pioneer for acoustic music throughout her already impressive multi-decade career, she has graced the country’s most iconic stages,including Carnegie Hall, the Grand Ole Opry, and the White House. Her virtuosic abilities have garnered respect from genre-defining trailblazers, friends, and collaborators such as Alison Krauss, Sturgill Simpson, Garth Brooks, Dolly Parton, Bela Fleck, Bobby McFerrin, and Brandi Carlile. Originally hailing from Byrdstown, Tennessee, her unique sound is rooted in bluegrass,and she is widely considered one of acoustic music’s most inventive artists.


Equal parts classic songwriter and modern-day storyteller, Gabe Lee has built his own bridge between country, folk and rock.Lee has been collecting stories for years, both onstage and off. “I used to bartend,” says the Nashville-based songwriter, “which means I was also a cheap therapist for whomever happened to be sitting on the barstool. Whether they were there to celebrate or drink away their problems, I heard about whatever they were going through. It was my job to have that face-to-face interaction —that connection. Being a full-time musician isn’t much different.”With critically-acclaimed albums like 2019’sfarmland, 2020’sHonky-Tonk Hell, and 2022’sThe Hometown Kid, Lee created that connection by delivering his own stories to an ever-growing audience. His fourth record,Drink the River, takes a different approach. This time, Lee isn’t offering listeners a peek into his internal world; he’s holding up a mirror to reflect their own.Storytelling has been an anchor of Lee’s music since the very beginning. Raised by Taiwanese parents in Nashville, TN, he left home during his teenage years and headed to Indiana, where he obtained college degrees in literature and journalism. Lee launched his career as a genre-bending musician after returning to Tennessee, quickly progressing from dive bar gigs to high-profile opening slots (including shows with Jason Isbell, Los Lobos,Molly Tuttle,and other artists who, like him, blurred the lines between roots-rock, country, and other forms of American folkmusic) to his own headlining shows. Throughout it all, he drew upon the narrative skills he’d sharpened as a student. If albums likeHonky-Tonk HellandThe Hometown Kidoften unfolded like autobiographical entries from his road journal, thenDrink the Rivershows an even broader range of his storytelling abilities. Lee isn’t just writing songs about himself; he’s writing songs about all of us. And maybe, in doing so, he can bring us a little closer together.
