This amazing album was recorded from two incredible sold-out shows in November 2010 in her hometown, Seattle. The album features Brandi and her band – Tim Hanseroth (guitar), Phil Hanseroth (bass), Josh Neumann (cello) and Allison Miller (drums), performing original songs and a few beautiful covers – alongside a thirty-piece orchestra!
Brandi Carlile, winner of Seattle’s City of Music Breakthrough Award for 2010, sold-out her Benaroya debut in 2008. Returning to the Hall for the first time last November, after touring more than a year in support of Give Up The Ghost, Carlile treated her fans to an expanded road-polished repertoire, performing an exquisite set-list of original compositions and covers including Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah,” Simon & Garfunkel’s “The Sound of Silence” and Elton John’s “Sixty Years On” (showcasing Brandi’s vocals within the original Paul Buckmaster arrangement), all included on Brandi Carlile – Live at Benaroya Hall with the Seattle Symphony.
I have seen Brandi in concert more times than I can count, and every time I see her it is better than the show before it. I even got to meet her last year, which was probably the highlight of my year! I see a LOT of shows for the website, and out of everyone I’ve seen, Brandi is always my favorite. She’s such an amazing, passionate performer. She’s on tour right now (I’m seeing her again in a couple weeks!) so GO HERE to check out her tour dates, and see her when she comes to your town!
PS: Here’s one of Brandi’s songs that just kills me every time (I’m doing good if I don’t cry when I hear it!). It’s not on this new album, but it’s on ‘Give Up the Ghost’ which is one of my favorite albums!
