ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Where do I even begin? After many long months of preparation and lots of hard work, I am beyond excited to bring you this music.

“Every new beginning comes from some other beginning's end” -Seneca

I think it's fair to say that I have always loved music, especially Bluegrass! I've always wanted to make a record, but every time I would start it seemed I would never go through with it. I would record a song or two and that would be it. I'd just sweep the entire thing under the rug. To be fair though, I knew even then that I wasn't really ready to make an album. My primary focus wasn't music, but entertaining other aspects of my life. They say, “true love always finds its way" - well, I think that was my case with music. I knew if I wanted to make even a decent album that I needed to find myself musically. I do owe a great deal of thanks to certain people for allowing me to see my own potential and giving me the encouragement necessary to accomplish one of my dreams.

I began telling my sister, “Hey Sis, I'm ready to do this for real this time!” She was very encouraging and said, “you should!” I love my sister to death and she is one of my best friends. But let's face the facts - being a shadow of someone isn't always the most pleasant path to tread. So many times I received the famous saying, “Hey! You're Sierra Hull's brother right?” I knew then, I wanted to find my own identity. I then began writing and brain-storming. I had songs I had started, but never finished. I had those I'd finished, but wasn't sure they defined me and what I was going for. I also knew that I couldn't make a CD filled with songs that had been recorded hundreds of times before. We all know that you have one chance at a first impression. So I began writing songs that had been inspired by events in my own life and stories originated by my own imagination.

Sierra and Justin introduced me to Thomm Jutz, who engineered this CD at his studio in Nashville. It's easy to say this guy is good at what he does! Working on this project with Sierra, Justin, Joe and Thomm was such a great experience and full of great memories I'll cherish for a lifetime. I can't begin to thank them enough for all their hard work they put into this album. It was because of them that I was able to bring my songs to life. I'm so thankful for the fact they pushed me further than I would have taken myself. Because of them this record has far exceeded my own expectations and dreams.

I hope the eight songs I wrote for this album will define me as a musician and allow people to see me as an original artist. I chose two songs for this project that I didn’t write. 'Carolina in the Pines' because it's my all-time favorite bluegrass song and 'Waiting on the Times' because a dear friend of mine,Ronnie Gilreath,loves this song. He is a huge inspiration to me.

(BIO)
Cody Hull -Crafty and engaging on-stage and off, Cody has already emerged as a leading light in a new generation of bluegrass musicians. He and his sister Sierra Hull, were featured performers on the Great High Mountain Tour, which included an all-star bluegrass lineup performing songs from the soundtracks of the hit movies O Brother Where Art Thou and Cold Mountain. A seasoned performer, he has appeared numerous times on the legendary stage of the Grand Ole Opry, countless radio and television shows and won numerous guitar competitions. Hull is no stranger to sharing the spotlight with highly acclaimed bluegrass legends such as, Alison Krauss & Union Station, Jerry Douglas,Tony Rice, Ralph Stanley,Ricky Skaggs, Adam Steffey,The Whites, The Cox family and countless others. He and his sister have traveled the nation pursuing their career, as well Japan and other countries. Among numerous other things Cody had the privilege of performing for the Governor of TN, as well as a memorial at the Capital. In 2009, Hull received a music scholarship to ETSU where he studied music and was mentored by music legends Adam Steffey and Tim Stafford to name a few. When being asked what performing means to you, he responded with, “ When you look out at the crowd and see a smile on a person's face, it humbles you - it gives you the drive to give your all, even if it’s just for that one person whose listening.” His talent and passion never fails to awe even the most seasoned of music lovers. “It’s amazing to listen to his uncommonly high vocal range, driving rhythm and tasty guitar licks. His soft, yet driving voice awes crowds and he leads his band with precision and agility. With a new record on the way, filled with songs written and arranged by himself, there’s no doubt this young mans future in music seems to be bright!

Cody has done a superb job on his first record,playing guitar, singing, and writing songs. Run Away is truly a pleasure to hear! – Ron Block

Cody Hull has a great sense for writing and picking material that suit him. He is growing into a top notch singer and player. In this age where most young artists are trying to sound like someone else, He sounds like no one else. I really enjoyed this project and that doesn't happen often.-- Clay Hess

"Cody has put together a dynamite recording that will surely place him on everyone’s radar! I have know him for a number of years now and have watched and listened to him mature as both a player and singer. It’s SO good to hear him in this context as the front man for such a terrific project. The songs are strong, the playing is powerful, and his vocals are delivered with a natural style and ease that makes you know he is in control. Enjoy this project and commit it to memory, because I have a feeling it’s just the beginning of a lot of great music we’re all going to hear from this talented young man!!” – Adam Steffey

"Cody's music conveys a sense of place, an emotional understanding of the history of Bluegrass music and a sense of responsibility to carry it forward.I had been friends with Cody’s sister Sierra and Justin Moses for a long time and I am so grateful to them for introducing me to Cody and Joseph.
We took the work that went into making this record very seriously, but trust me -there were plenty of laughs as well.It’s been a great pleasure to be involved in the making of this record.
Cody is wonderful writer, singer and player.” – Thomm Jutz
