iTunes Review

There’s a Far Western note of plaintiveness running through the tracks of Brandi Carlile’s 2006 self-titled debut, and critics deservedly gushed over this Washington State-born artist’s ache-wracked vocals and sparse, heart-tugging songwriting. Fundamentally, her first album is a country release — but Brandi Carlile’s stark production and often bleak tone is as far from the genre’s current mainstream as Nashville is from Spokane. As a singer, Carlile invites comparisons with a young Bonnie Raitt, delivering her lyrics with a bluesy throb accented with keening falsetto touches. Tracks like “What Can I Say” (written by co-producer Phil Hanseroth), “In My Own Eyes” and “Fall Apart Again” evoke late-night barroom reveries and lonesome drives across empty landscapes, and the wounded bravado of “Happy” and quiet desolation of “Tragedy” (the latter a torchy ballad recalling k.d. laing’s early work) are especially haunting. Carlile strikes a more aggressive stance on “Closer to You,” riding atop a galloping guitar line. Worth special mention is her darkly reflective cover of Elton John’s “Sixty Years On,” included as a bonus track.

One Word: Amazing!!!

This cd is absolutely amazing! Every song is amazing, soulful, and full of emotion. I just saw her in Aspen and she is one of the only artists that I have seen where she is better live then on a cd. I highly recommend seeing her live, the show is just amazing. She does a rendition of the Jonny Cash Folsom Prison song, brought the house down. Like I said only one word: AMAZING!!!

Wow... get ready for something raw and refreshing!

I saw Brandi Carlile open for Train in April of this year... the silence that fell over this sold out concert when she sang "Follow" and then "Hallelujah" gives me goosebumps revisiting the moments. Fantastic raw passionate voice... nothing fake about this young lady. You can hear the influences of Jeff Buckley to Melissa Ethridge... great blend and all her own. Enjoy it all.

Addictive vocals and guitars to match...

Heard "what can i say" on the radio and dnlded happy after that one, then went and bought the whole album. Brandi Carlile has unbelievable and addictive vocals. and the guitars simply dance around all that giving her a unique sound and constant thirst for more. "Closer to you" became my next fav and the entire album is simply just fantastic. I seldom buy cd's and itunes albums but this was a must she is now in my all time top 5! Buy it.


Born: June 1, 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...
