BRANDI CARLILE, with The Cactus Blossoms and The Last Revel, coming to the all-new Verizon Event Center on Friday, September 2.
Since her heralded, genre-defying 2005 Columbia debut, Carlile and her indispensable collaborators, Tim and Phil Hanseroth, aka The Twins, have always offered listeners both control and abandon, often within a single song. The most well-known Brandi Carlile tunes, 2007’s “The Story” and 2012’s “That Wasn’t Me,” are dynamic journeys in themselves, encompassing myriad emotions and varied stylistic touches; “The Story” morphs from understated balladry to epic stadium rock, while “That Wasn’t Me” effortlessly straddles country soul and pop gospel. Infused with Carlile’s clarion voice, The Twins’ tight sibling harmonies, and stellar musicianship from everyone, it all simply sounds like Brandi Carlile. Carlile’s most recent work, The Firewatcher’s Daughter, is a full-on Carlile/Twins co-production, cut live in Seattle’s Bear Creek Studio; a project that was intent on capturing the elusive essence of a song’s spirit, with the album being tracked live, with little or no rehearsal.
