It almost seems effortless the way melodies ease from the lips of Brandi Carlile. She is at once fretfully rugged, yet achingly pristine.
Since 2005, this American singer-songwriter has released a string of strikingly honest records that have amassed Miss Carlile a following spanning across the globe. In 2005, she was named Rolling Stone's "Artist To Watch," and it seems everyone paid attention.
Always one for love of the art, Carlile's latest release is an exquisite live album that was recorded in two days’ time at Seattle’s Benaroya Hall with the backing of the 30-piece Seattle Symphony. Taking pieces from her three full-length albums polished beautifully from extensive touring and a few special cover songs, the record absolutely sparkles.
