ABOUT

Sierra defines herself as a singer and songwriter, not a singer-songwriter. She brings with her a fresh flavor of pop-rock-soul.

Dividing her time between Philadelphia (United States), Lisbon (Portugal, and Swindon (United Kingdom), Sierra brings her infectious mix to audiences worldwide.

""What sets Sierra Hurtt apart from her contemporaries, from my personal point of view, is not what she let?s out or delivers vocally, but rather what she holds back. Her innate ability to manipulate time and space, in between musical notes and bars, is absolutely stunning." Jamsphere

"If Sade jammed an acoustic guitar and got a little funkier, she would sound like burgeoning artist Sierra [Hurtt], who runs the gamut from Latin to soul music. While her new album, [Stranger], due out April 10, covers many genres it ultimately highlights the singer?s deep, tender, silky voice." Philadelphia City Paper
