BC Logo

Image1Washington state-bred Brandi Carlile was inspired to pick up the guitar and learned to play after seeing the Indigo Girls in concert at Lilith Fair.  Her last album, The Story, debuted on Billboard’s Top 200, peaking at #2 on iTunes and was named one of VH1’s “You Oughta Know” artists in addition to having many of her songs featured on various episodes of “Grey’s Anatomy”.

She’s toured with the likes of Ray Lamontagne, Dave Mathews Band and Sheryl Crow, who raved about Brandi’s live performances, “She has the most amazing voice I may have ever heard. Soulful. Country. Perfect in every way and propelled by taste.”

Extraordinary singer-songwriter Brandi is a One2One Network darling and critics are praising her artistry, Paste Magazine calls her the “best voice in indie rock” and her childhood idol Elton John duets with her on her new album, Give Up The Ghost being released by Columbia Records on October 6th.

My Thoughts…

Hats off to artist that write their own music! This is one thing I really like about Brandi Carlile. No doubt, it’s a lot of work to be both a singer and a song writer! The sounds of her music is a mix of rock, indie, and folk. I normally don’t listen to this type of music but quite enjoyed the stories that can be found in each song!

If you’d like to learn more about this artist, you can check out Brandi Carlile on Facebook as well as at her website!
