“Some of [the songs] rattle the floorboards; others are quieter, offering beautiful harmonies or rich storytelling. But no matter what they sound like, the songs on this release feel like rock and roll.” – Ann Powers, NPR Music
Watch/Listen to ‘The Eye’ HERE
Brandi Carlile will make her independent label debut on ATO/MapleMusic March 3, 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.
