Weighted Mind Interview - Mandolin Cafe

"Weighted Mind, produced, at Alison Krauss’s suggestion, by Bela Fleck, is, almost purely, a songwriter’s record, reflecting the hard journey of a young woman not just finding, but making her place in the world (with a little assistance from co-writers Zach Bevill, Josh Shilling and Jon Weisberger). Sonically, it is spare to the point of bravery, with Hull (aside from a quick guest spot with Fleck and brief vocal assistance from Krauss, Abigail Washburn and Rhiannon Giddens) accompanied solely by bassist Ethan Jodziewicz. It is a remarkable statement; one that is likely to change Hull’s life in all good ways."
