I’ve been a big fan of Brandi Carlile since I first heard her self-titled debut album way back in 2006. I gave the album a listen based on a friend’s recommendation and her soulful voice pulled me in right away. She’s one of those artists that you hear on the radio and you know exactly who is singing to you after only a few notes. Since I was already a fan, I was thrilled to be given the chance to review an advance copy of Brandi Carlile’s new album from One2One.
Brandi’s new album, Give Up The Ghost, brings a matured sound with just a little bit of that country twang that I’ve come to love from her. From the wistful “Dreams” to the heartbreaking “Before It Breaks” the album does not disappoint. This album also brought with it opportunities for Brandi to collaborate with several amazing artists including Elton John, who sings with her on the upbeat “Caroline” (that I can’t seem to get out of my head). If you haven’t heard it yet, I highly recommend that you get yourself over to iTunes or your music store of choice and pick up a copy.
An advance copy of Give Up The Ghost was provided by One2One Network for review purposes.
