ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Songwriter and vocalist Sierra Hurtt has been performing and recording since the tender age of 4. The daughter of award-winning songwriter, Phil Hurtt, Sierra grew up in the cradle of Philadelphia Soul. During her teens, she discovered Rock 'n' Roll, which led to a period of musical exploration that has resulted in a truly unique sound.

In 2009, Sierra emerged as a fresh, new artist with stories to be told and a voice to be heard. With the infectious lead-off single "Rooftops", her debut EP 8 or 80 is catching the attention of critics and audiences worldwide. Though she is often compared to Joni Mitchell, Carole King and Sia - among others - Sierra is carving a niche that is all her own.

Aided by the help of long-time friends, including engineering virtuoso Michael Richelle, seasoned, session musician Chuck Treece, R&B chanteuses Gabrielle Hurtt and Vivian Green, and musical chameleon Devin Greenwood, Hurtt is poised to fulfill her legacy as a child of music.

-----------------------------

"8 or 80", the new EP by Sierra Hurtt is a powerful creative work. These songs take the listener on a journey of amazement. Sierra's exceptional voice sparkles amidst the beauty and wonder of the stories she tells and the strength of her original compositions. The music flows through free falling jazz infused vibes and powerful experimental rock. It's a journey well worth taking.

-----------------------------

SIERRA HURTT is the daughter of top Philadelphia writer/producer/artist PHIL HURTT and, following in dad's footsteps, she's about to release her first music collection - '8 Or 80'. The EP will be available from the usual internet outlets in June and it shows that the lady has a convincing soul voice – not surprising considering her background. The lead track is a slab of sultry nu-soul -'Rooftops'. It's a moody, atmospheric tune with a feel of CAROLE KING'S 'It's Too Late' to it.

Crisp and refreshing folk flavor
Songwriter/vocalist Sierra Hurtt’s debut album, “8 or 80,” is comprised of crisp and refreshing contemporary pop/rock while highly flavorful with folk attitude. Hurtt, who is no stranger to the music scene, charts her own course into the music industry with a voice that is strong and emotive, and emits qualities of deep, rooted, soulful distinctions. Peaceful and serene comes to mind when hearing “Solace,” with the soothing acoustic guitar and the tranquility in Hurtt’s voice. Laid-back and full of solid vibes, “Rooftops” is embedded with expressive rock guitar riffs that swarm around the sultry vocals that Hurtt generously delivers. A beautiful blend of tingling vocals and thoughtful lyrics meld together with the sweet guitar licks on the gem, “Circles.” Don’t miss a chance to hear this wonderful album, “8 or 80,” especially if you’re a fan of Joni Mitchell or Carole King, because with Sierra Hurtt at the helm, you’re in for a fantastic ride.

Inspirational and Refreshing new music
It was truly an inspiration listening to this new CD. Sierra completely captured my attention throughout each and every song. All of the songs are refreshing, it's nice to see that there are still artists that really care about what they are painting on their canvas... Sierra paints a beautiful picture with her music and words.
