Brandi Carlile/Old Crow Medicine Show

When: Tue., July 12, 7:30 p.m. 2016

Singer-songwriter Brandi Carlile got a lucky break about ten years ago when Dave Matthews heard her singing on a side stage at the Gorge, the outdoor amphitheater located just outside of Seattle. Matthews hooked her up with his booking agent, and Carilile has been busy ever since. Her latest album, The Firewatcher’s Daughter, is another solid effort. It opens with the lilting “Wherever Is Your Heart” and shows off Carlile’s passionate voice as she belts out songs about insecurities (“The Things I Regret”) and feeling weak (“Blood Muscle Skin & Bone”). It’s a highly personal album that was influenced by the fact that Carlile was about to become a mother for the first time as she was writing the songs. Tonight's co-headlining tour pairs her with roots rockers Old Crow Medicine Show, the jam band famous for finishing the Dylan tune "Wagon Wheel." Both bands will play full sets and sit in with each other for a song or two too. (Niesel)
