Brandi Carlile is one of those artists that possess the ability to warm your heart as soon as she begins to play. With her heartfelt lyrics and powerhouse voice that is able to send chills down her audience’s spine, Carlile is definitely not one to be overlooked. She has been on the music scene for a number of years now and has been making quite the name for herself since the beginning. Her music, although appealing to the pop genre, encompasses alternative country, folk, rock, blues and indie styles. Brandi Carlile’s music is her passion and she is doing exactly what she set out to do as a young girl in Ravensdale, Washington, she is living her dream and is making her passion her life.
Along with being an incredibly insightful songwriter, Carlile has an amazing stage presence that keeps you wanting more. I have had the opportunity to see Brandi Carlile live three times now and every time she gives 100% to her perfromance and brings something new. This is a quote taken from a performance review by the Digital Journal, reviewing her performance at the Beacon Theatre in New York City on March 23, 2013; “Brandi’s energy was infectious and she inspired her audience to stomp their feet, clap, dance and sing along with her. Her band members and special guest artists, The Lone Bellow, were equally impressive. Her live show garnered an A+ rating”. I believe that says it all. Brandi Carlile is a rare talent and deserves all of the Heartbeats that she can get!
