Since releasing her debut EP, Room for Me, in 2000; Brandi Carlile has been a darling of folk-rock. Labeled as one of Rolling Stone's 10 Artists to Watch list in 2005, Carlile has been serving up modest folk hits that have filled our souls. Her innovation only seeks to highlight the soulful, heartwarming qualities of her songs, and usher in a new heyday of folk music.
The rural Washington native started out performing country music covers as a teenager. Brandi Carlile concerts were performed throughout the local bar scene of Seattle where she sold her self-released EPs. She garnered industry attention when Dave Matthews noticed her at the Sasquatch! Music Festival, in 2003. She was soon signed to Columbia Records and released her major label self-titled debut in 2005. Brandi Carlile tour dates were booked alongside the Hanseroth Brothers for the next two years while her single "What Can I Say" became a hit on the Billboard Triple-A chart, reaching #18 in 2006. By the end of the year, Brandi Carlile had shared the stage for concert performances with Shawn Colvin, Ray LaMontagne, and Tori Amos to name a few.
Her sophomore set, The Story, was released in 2007 and featured production by Grammy-Award winning producer T-Bone Burnett. She worked with her idols, the Indigo Girls, on a track and three of the singles were featured on the ABC hit television show Grey's Anatomy. Following the success of the album Brandi Carlile tour dates took her across the pond to the UK where she performed with Newton Faulkner. Brandi Carlile tour dates were also scheduled as the opening act on Maroon 5 and OneRepublic's Australian tour. She released her third album, Give Up The Ghost, in 2009 where it debuted at #26 on the Billboard 200 and featured a collabo with her idol - Elton John. The album was produced by the iconic Rick Rubin and once again many tracks were licensed out to hit television shows.
Carlile's fourth album, Live at Benaroya Hall with the Seattle Symphony, was recorded at live tour dates in November, 2010. The album features several covers, most notably Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah, and other original Carlile material. It was a dream come-true for the up-and-comer who "got to work with a world class symphony and record in this legendary venue in [her] hometown," said Carlile. She has been blessed to work with such prolific producers as T-Bone Burnett and Rick Rubin, not through luck, but because of the raw talent these visionaries saw in her.
Another such visionary was Grammy Award winner Trina Shoemaker, who produced Carlile's next studio album, Bear Creek. The album flirted with the folk-country genre, and the exploration landed the record at #10 on the Billboard 200. Carlile continued to explore bolder sounds on 2015's The Firewatcher's Daughter, where she melded driving rock with acoustic ballads, folk melodies, and gospel hymnals.
No one's sure what the future holds for the music of Brandi Carlile, but fans can bet that it will be innovative, powerful, and a pleasure to behold.
