“…it's the voice that has gripped people; it's like a fire that blazes, cracks and then warms the loneliest heart.” – The Seattle Times

Folk-rock singer-songwriter Brandi Carlile returns to the stage in Santa Rosa with her innovative guitar work and powerful vocals. Sonoma County fans love Carlile’s unique blend of rock, folk, bluegrass and soul—calling for more and more at her debut concert here in 2012.

From her earliest days on Seattle’s coffeehouse circuit, Brandi Carlile has demonstrated an uncommon gift for connecting with fans. She has toured non-stop since the release of her self-titled debut album in 2005, growing her audience in a grassroots fashion with relatively little commercial support. Along with innumerable headline dates, she shared stages with such artists as Dave Matthews Band, Ray LaMontagne, and The Avett Brothers, as well with local symphony orchestras in Spokane, Portland, Louisville, and her own beloved Seattle.

Most recently, Carlile received high praise from fans and critics alike for her fourth album—the very personal and down-to-earth “Bear Creek.” This record sees the singer/songwriter using the experience garnered from life on the road to elevate her already astonishing artistry to a new plane. The album is marked by Carlile’s earthy, naturalistic approach to recording, with songs like “Raise Hell” and “That Wasn’t Me” set apart by intuitive, inventive instrumentation and Carlile’s remarkable vocals—by turns nuanced and raw, brilliantly uninhibited and always expressive.
