Brandi Carlile Biography:
When she was still very young, Carlile taught herself to sing and play piano. She didn't teach herself to play guitar until she was 17.
Since then, she's never had a "real" job. She started out singing back-up vocals for an Elvis impersonator, and was playing gigs every chance she got. She eventually developed a back-up band with brothers Tim and Phil Hasenroth. Together, they began playing at local restaurants and bars, weddings, parties, and every other gig available.
Major Label DebutIn 2004, Carlile finally signed a deal with Columbia Records, and continued recording throughout that year. The resulting album, Brandi Carlile was recorded partly in studios in Seattle, and partly in her home in Maple Valley, Wash.
Since then, Carlile's career has taken off at rocket speeds. She was named one of Rolling Stone magazine's Top 10 Artists to Watch in 2005, and was invited to sing backing vocals for the Indigo Girls on their album Despite Our Differences. She's toured persistantly throughout the US and around the world with artists like Sheryl Crow, Ray LaMontagne, Train, Maroon Five, and others—as well as selling out headlining dates around the world.
