Brandi Carlile has spent the better part of the last decade traversing the planet, bringing her music to an ever-growing fan following. “BEAR CREEK” 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 Brandi’s remarkable vocals – by turns nuanced and raw, brilliantly uninhibited and always expressive. “BEAR CREEK” stands as a major milestone for Carlile, the moment in which she integrated the knowledge and skills accumulated over the past eight years to craft her most personal and definitive work thus far.
“You take what you learn from situations and marry them with your own ideas,” she says. “That’s what happened with ‘BEAR CREEK,’ that’s why it’s such an important record for me.”
From her earliest days on Seattle’s coffeehouse circuit, 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 (the latter of which was captured on 2011’s album “LIVE AT BENAROYA HALL WITH THE SEATTLE SYMPHONY”).
