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, Blanca added bass, guitar, and drums to his repertoire. With all these musical instruments he has become an accomplished player, and his moving around and church background helps to create music that is so moving. Blanca has learned the ropes the hard way, and his passion for his music is so apparent. I’ve noticed that those from church background show an incredible desire to share their experience, and Blanca is no exception. He has a lot in common with Feist and older Death Cab For Cutie, when they were more intimate. Pay him a listen. You’ll be surprised how much he’ll get to you. And that’s all in a great way.
