Brandi Carlile The Firewatcher's Daughter on 2LP + Download
Brandi Carlile will make her independent label debut on ATO Records in March 2015 with the release of The Firewatcher's Daughter. The 12-song album explodes with energy, urgency and pristine harmonies and represents the start of a fresh chapter for Carlile and her longtime collaborators Tim and Phil Hanseroth, also known as "The Twins."
The Firewatcher's Daughter was recorded almost entirely as first takes without any demoing and little rehearsal before gathering at Bear Creek Studio in Washington State. The result is immediate and electrifying. "The Eye," a song influenced by Crosby, Stills and Nash, is so intimate and hushed you can hear the quiver of Brandi's voice in a flawless 3-part harmony. Lead-off track and first single "Wherever Is Your Heart" captures a fiery intensity.
The creative spirit of the album is also exemplified in Brandi's sold-out Pin Drop Tour, which wowed audiences this fall. Playing historic rooms, Brandi and The Twins performed songs new and old without any amplification - no mics, no amps, no PA - relying only on their voices, acoustic instruments and the venues themselves. The Chicago Tribune attributed Carlile to proving "that sometimes music has more to say than speakers can communicate."
The Firewatcher's Daughter follows-up 2012's Bear Creek, which debuted in the Billboard Top 10, and was hailed as "gorgeous" by Rolling Stone and "tremendously assured" by NPR.
