Brandi Carlile

A literate singer/songwriter whose music splits the difference between pop/rock and folksy Americana, Brandi Carlile was born in the small town of Ravensdale, Washington, an isolated community 50 miles from Seattle. With few neighbors or friends nearby, she grew up learning to make her own entertainment, which included hiking trips in the nearby woods and self-taught vocal lessons. Carlile also grew attached to the classic country music her parents doted on, specifically Patsy Cline, and she made her stage debut at the age of eight after she was taken to a local country radio show by her mother. At 17, Carlile picked up the guitar, having developed a taste for rock & roll through Elton John's classic albums of the '70s, and began hitting the Seattle bar scene, playing anywhere she could get a gig (including a stint singing backup for an Elvis Presley tribute act).

While playing clubs, she encountered a band called the Fighting Machinists, featuring twin brothers Tim and Phil Hanseroth. Impressed by their instrumental skills and spot-on harmonies, Carlile became an instant fan of the band, and when the group broke up, she persuaded the Hanseroth twins to form a new group with her. While they started out as an aggressive rock & roll band, Carlile's emotionally powerful songwriting and acoustic guitar work soon became the dominant component of their sound, and they began touring regularly, headlining small venues and opening shows for Dave Matthews, Shawn Colvin, and India.Arie.

In 2000, Carlile recorded the first of several self-released recordings that sold briskly at shows. By 2005, she'd earned enough buzz to secure a contract with Columbia Records, which released her self-titled debut later that same year. The album earned enthusiastic reviews, and Carlile was named one of 2005's "Artists to Watch" by Rolling Stone. In 2006, Carlile and her band began work on her second Columbia album, The Story, with T-Bone Burnett producing. The record was released in spring 2007 to warm reviews, and the inclusion of its title track in several commercials (most notably a General Motors ad that aired during the 2008 Beijing Olympics) helped boost sales. Give Up the Ghost followed in late 2009 and cracked the Top 40, featuring production from another high-caliber studio hand, Rick Rubin, as well as a duet with childhood idol Elton John.

Carlile rang in 2010 by issuing a Valentine's Day-themed EP, XOBC. She also continued to tour, making a well-received stop at the annual Bonnaroo Festival that summer and collaborating with the Seattle Symphony during two shows in November. The symphonic concerts were recorded and released the following year as Live at Benaroya Hall. In 2012, Carlile returned with the album Bear Creek, featuring production from Grammy Award-winning mixer/producer/engineer Trina Shoemaker. Taking its title from the Washington recording studio in which the album was recorded, Bear Creek included the leadoff single "That Wasn't Me." ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

Let me make you custom boots…..plea s e ! ! !

If there's a better young live concert artist than Brandi Carlile working today, please let me know, because I haven't found them. Like another commenter, I'm old enough to be Brandi's father, but good music is good music. If you like her recorded music, you'll LOVE her live shows. She's amazing...
Her concerts are absolutely amazing! I highly recommend it. And oh my gosh, when she sings "creep" you all will melt in your chair and drop your panties. Haha. Even if you are straight.
Stunning soul, stunning spirit embeded within her lovely music. Love this!
Looooooooooo o V e
absolutely amazing!!
downpour beautifully sung and composed

She is the best! I love every single song and she's even better live, believe it or not. Such an idol to me.
hands down the best vocalist/art i s t around
I'm old enough to be her dad, but love that voice and her thought provoking words. Maybe I can catch her in concert someday if she comes to the Plain States or when I'm in Arizona sometime.
Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest Friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However if you don't post this you will die in the next 2 days. Now you started reading this so don't stop. This is so scary put this on 5 songs in the next 143 minutes. When done press f6 and your lovers name will appear on the screen in BIG letters this is so scary cus it actually works!

Agreed - every song by A Fine Frenzy sounds the same. Brandi is way more versatile and has a voice that no one can top.
Brandi Rocks!!! You have no clue what your talking about.
A Fine Frenzy is way better. She seems more like the weepies. But she's good.

How does Pandora screw up so many songwriting credits?
Not her best song by a long shot but she is a superbly talented singer songwriter.

Oops, I meant Bryan Adams' Heaven. She makes it way better. I used to dress up like Robert Smith every year for Halloween so still have The Cure on the brain.
stef666
Great singer, funny they don't mention that the song is actually a remake of The Cure's Heaven from the late 80's. I guess nobody pays attention to what actually happens these days.
I love Brandi Carlile <3
mkadry82
meh
I love it.
My favotite singer. Her songs have EVERYTHING and are so meaningful to me.
her music is so full, theres nothing missing from the instrumental or lyrical point of view , I'm not usually even a fan of this style of music but she's made a convert of me.
Saw Brandi at Bele Chere in Asheville, NC this year and she delivered a memorable show.
been listening to brandi carlile station for about 3 hours now and finally a brandi carlile song!!! whats up with that
msieg69
Very much looking forward to seeing her on The Rock Boat XIII in February 2013.
Wow.
please please please send her to the Brit in Jacksonville Or. brittfest.or g
always loved the best original this is better.
dsdonohue
Just saw her in Bend, OR. WOW! I had no idea what a great performer and song writer she is. So glad my partner got us tickets to it. They do some collaborativ e song writing, which I really appreciate. I'm going to check out her older albums too! My son is ten and loved the show and to my surprise knew alot of her lyrics!
Feels like she opened the book of my heart and started writing these beuatiful melodic songs about it. First time I heard My Song I nearlyt cried on how much I related with that song. And her live shows are juast as amazing.
bothhands23
Everything Brandi writes is deeply insightful and emotionally gripping. Its like every song has to do with the love of a lifetime and the many facets of an intimate relationship . Listening to her is an immediate fall down the rabbit hole to a purer more crystalline place where emotions are much sharper, clearer and heartfelt. An amazingly talented, beautiful artist like Brandi is so rare and unique. Needless to say, I have the new album already and tickets for her tour as well.
jriordan8
Have seen her 4 times, and going again next weekend in Boston. Can't wait, always an excellent, live show!
walter.hand
wow that is so spot on simon & garfunkel I had to check the CD , & that is track#10 and Brandi credits the twins tim & phil to the crowd at the end of the song, Saw this band on Austin City Limits ,a couple of months ago... knocked me out, put it on Pandora the next day.Brandi
Bear Creek came just in time for summer. Saw the Save Part of Yourself video on ABC's music lounge, great performance. Dig the album!
m_poncy
I first heard Minnie Driver sing on a great but short-lived TV show, The Riches and thought with a voice like that she's gotta have something recorded. I found her two CD and wasn't disappointed except there wasn't more.
Every lyric she writes - AMAZING. I love Brandi. Bear Creek is going to be another perfectly crafted album. So far, already loving That Wasnt Me and Hard Way Home so much!
