Indie Folk Artist, Sierra Blanca, Drops NEW Video Ahead of 11/10 Release

Nashville/El Paso-based,  indie folk artist, Sierra Blanca, drops  his new video “Book” from his upcoming EP, Honorable Mention, due  out November 10, 2017. “Book” is a highly relatable song in the current socio-political climate, as it addresses  social injustice, distrust and disappointment in politicians, the government and the state of the country.

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. Starting with keyboards, Gaglione added  bass, guitar, and drums to his repertoire and started jamming with local bands upon moving to the US in 2002. He started a project called “A Main Street Marvel” from 2007 to 2015 and changed the name to  Sierra Blanca when he relocated to Nashville in 2015. Refining his live performance with shows across the Southeast, Gaglione cites  Louis Armstrong, Fleetwood Mac, and Amy Winehouse as influences on his hybrid of indie, folk, soul and pop.  His sound has been compared to that of Feist,  David Ramirez and older Death Cab for Cutie.

Stay tuned for more material leading up to the release of Honorable Mention and catch Sierra Blanca live on November 9 at The Cobra in Nashville to celebrate the album’s release.
