Brandi Carlile

Rock, Country, Pop
"Everyone needs to be risking something," says Seattle-based alt-country/folk singer-songwriter Brandi Carlile. "The Firewatcher's Daughter," her stunning 2015 release - her first for artist-friendly indie label ATO. marked a triumphant return after a three-year recording hiatus, and her strongest, most rock & roll album to date. Since her heralded, genre-defying 2005 Columbia debut, Carlile and her collaborators, Tim and Phil Hanseroth, aka The Twins, have always offered listeners both control and abandon, often within a single song. Her best-known tunes, 2007's "The Story" and 2012's "That Wasn't Me," are dynamic journeys in themselves, encompassing myriad emotions and varied stylistic touches.
