Just past her 35th birthday, alt-country singer Brandi Carlile is already carving a legacy as one of the great songwriters of our time. The success of her T Bone Burnett-produced 2007 record, The Story — and its title track, which charted nearly everywhere in the world — introduced her brand of heart-on-sleeve, western-infused balladeering. The four records since have seen continued evolution and maturity, including a GRAMMY nomination for her most recent effort, The Firewatcher’s Daughter. Bask in her voice and timeless writing from atop the hill in Joe’s Field.
