Carlile began her career performing in Seattle music clubs with twin brothers Tim and Phil Hanseroth. She joined Columbia Records in late 2004 and recorded her album Brandi Carlile the following year.
Her album The Story was produced by T Bone Burnett. The album’s title track was used in a General Motors television commercial. The song was also used in the 2008 commercial for Super Bock and helped the song reach number 1 and the album reach number 4 on the Portuguese charts.
She was featured on Rolling Stone’s list of “10 Artists to Watch in 2005” and in 2006, toured as an opening act for Ray LaMontagne, Jonny Lang, Hanson, Indigo Girls, The Fray, Chris Isaak, Tori Amos, and Shawn Colvin.
In 2007 Carlile performed at the Borderline in London and as guest on Newton Faulkner’s UK tour. She was the opening act for Maroon 5 and OneRepublic during their Australia tour and in April 2008, she performed on the BBC2 show, Later… with Jools Holland.
Give Up the Ghost was released in 2009 and debuted at No. 26 on the Billboard 200. Produced by Grammy Award-winning producer Rick Rubin, it featured a collaboration with Elton John on the song “Caroline” as well as Amy Ray, drummer Chad Smith and keyboardist Benmont Tench. In 2010, National Geographic Channel in Latin America chose the song “If There Was No You” from the album as a jingle to promote its series “Grandes Migraciones” (Great Migrations). Also that same year, during the 21st GLAAD Media Awards, Carlile was nominated for a GLAAD Media Award for “Outstanding Music Artist” for the album. In 2011, Carlile’s album Live at Benaroya Hall with the Seattle Symphony reached number 14 on the Top Rock Albums chart. Carlile’s next album, Bear Creek, released June 5, 2012, was produced by Trina Shoemaker. The album is a collaboration between her and the Hanseroth twins. In an interview with American Songwriter she says, “We decided a decade ago to split everything in our band evenly amongst the three of us. So nobody has any vested interest in getting involved with someone else’s song or their story. But nobody has a vested interest in keeping someone out of the story either. It always comes down to what’s best for the song.’ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brandi_Carlile
