iTunes Review

As a young artist, Brandi Carlile grew noticeably more mature and confident with each new album. Now 30, she's found her niche. 2012's Bear Creek primarily captures her acoustic side. Producer Trina Shoemaker fully understands Carlile's strengths, and from the opening gallop of "Hard Way Home" the sound leaves a comfortable space for her vocals to soar. The mild rockabilly tint of "Raise Hell" remains a modest buzz in the background where even the electric guitars that take the solo are kept in the background to better emphasize Carlile's husky blues vocals. Elements of folk, bluegrass, country, blues, pop, even gospel (try the chorus of voices tracing Carlile for "Save Part of Yourself") present themselves in part, while the results are always a combination of several elements ensuring something new. The piano ballad "That Wasn't Me" builds in power convincingly. Carlile has grown into a mature artist who has complete control over her talents and isn't afraid to try something new while remaining true to tradition.

Customer Reviews

Just simply amazing.

I do not understand how anyone can say this is a huge disappointment. Brandi Carlile has remarkable consistent in quality yet she manages to be just different enough to keep it interesting. I have 8,000 songs on my itunes and I most definitely have well over more than that in my CD and vinyl collection. I listen to a lot of music and I can honestly say that Carlile is one of the most remarkable female singer songwriters of her generation. She is incredible. This CD blends so many different genrres of music, yet it carries that Carlile trademark. If you like Carlile, give this a listen. If you have not heard of her before, give this a listen. Not many women can pull off Creep by Radiohead or Folsom Prison Blues by Cash and make it sound just as mean! This album is as good as anything she has ever done. Cheers

I SCORE "MORE" never disappoint!! EVER!! I have loved your music since I accidentally discovered you on Grey's Anatomy years ago....fell in love with your sound and your wonderful lyrics long ago....keep doing what you are doing....don't ever change how you write, where you perform, or what you comes out in every song I hear!!! WOOT another success!!

Great new album

Outstanding. Loved the Story, could never get into Give up the Ghost. This is unlike those two, but fantastic. Hard Way Home and Raise a Little Hell start the album and are probably the strongest tracks. 100 is also quite good. Seems like a more honest album than the last. As good as Rick Rubin is, he wasn't the right match for this band.


Born: June 01, 1981 in Ravensdale, WA

Genre: Singer/Songwriter

Years Active: '00s, '10s

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...
