Female Singer/Songwriter Fans Check Out Brandi Carlile

I love to sing. This is no something many people know about me. I sing like a bird when I am alone. I belong to a few of the Karaoke sites and try to keep a low profile so that no one knows about it. Female singers have always inspired me. I love Stevie Nicks, Melissa Etheridge, Kelly Clarkson, Pink, Taylor Swift, Fiona Apple, Pat Benatar, Cassidy, Ani DeFranco, just to name a few.

When One2One Network gave me the opportunity to check out a female artist I had never heard of who was inspired by the Indigo Girls I was interested. Check out Brandi Carlile.

Her last album, The Story, debuted on Billboard's Top 200, peaking at #2 on iTunes and was named one of VH1's "You Oughta Know" artists in addition to having many of her songs featured on various episodes of "Grey's Anatomy".

If you like KT Tunstall, Indigo Girls, Missy Higgins and Rachael Yamagata then you will LOVE Brandi Carlile.  

Brandi is far from an obscure, she has toured with the likes of  Dave Mathews Band and Sheryl Crow, who raved about Brandi's live performances, "She has the most amazing voice I may have ever heard. Soulful. Country. Perfect in every way and propelled by taste."

Brandi Carlile's song Dreams was inspired by a sex dream. She is my kind of girl. I thought her sound was different and very much what I want to listen to on a rainy day when I am hanging around my house alone reading or just zoning out.


  1. She shounds amazing... thanks for the info, I've never heard of her before.
