Check out Nashville-based, El Paso-born, indie folk artist, Sierra Blanca,and his new EP, Honorable Mention, out today!
Listen to the EP as premiered on AXS.com HERE.
Jethro Gaglione, aka Sierra Blanca, is a self-taught, multi-instrumentalist, who began playing music as part of the worship group for his parents’ missionary team in Mexico. They traveled all around the country living in old re-purposed school buses and putting up tents for “church” meetings.
Gaglione states: “Beds was one of the first songs I wrote purely on acoustic guitar when I decided to play more solo shows. It was sort of a personal challenge to myself, because there’s something special, yet challenging, about being able to approach a crowd with the simplicity of one person with one instrument instead of a whole band. For the EP, I eventually added more parts to it, but kept it decently simple straight forward. It talks about defeat, and how it plays an important part of the human experience.”
