Brandi carlisle dating
So, no one ever asked you to keep it on the down-low? ' [Laughs.] I read somewhere that you're dating a cop -- is that true? I'll tell you, not a show goes by where I don't think about it. I can't even let it all in, it's such a big deal to me.
Is the 'drunken screams' reference on the song 'Dying Day' a little dig at all those trashed people you used to play for? Tim [one of the Hanseroth twins, Carlile's bandmates] wrote that song, so I think he's probably definitely taking a little shot at them.
Anyway, she was talking about the leaps and bounds that we've made as a community -- not that we don't have a long way to go -- and how much harder it was then when the Indigo Girls were coming out. [Laughs.] I'm actually not sure she knows it, because I was working out in a studio doing background vocals for people -- like an ambiguous voice, basically -- and her CD came through, and it was just something to sing onto.
And I could see by talking to her that they -- along with k.d. So I'm not even sure she knows I'm singing onto it.
We have a review of Carlile’s new CD coming up in this week’s print edition, but before you read the review, check out this interview with Chris Azzopardi about why she only writes about ex-girlfriends, who (or what) “Josephine” is and the twins she’s seen naked. I have The Neverending Story tattooed on my shoulders, and that’s just how I live my life — so I’ll probably always write from that vantage point.
Here’s what we know about Brandi Carlile: Her lung power is a bigger threat to humanity than any nuclear war; she’s cool enough to sing with Elton John (who recorded a track with the singer for her last studio album, 2009’s ( — named after the secluded studio outside of Seattle she and her twin collaborators recorded in — takes her further into the Americana genre she’s gradually pursued since dropping her debut seven years ago.Since her 2005 debut, Carlile and her indispensable collaborators, Tim and Phil Hanseroth, aka The Twins, have always offered listeners both control and abandon, often within a single song.Carlile’s tunes are dynamic journeys in themselves, encompassing myriad emotions and varied stylistic touches; “The Story” morphs from understated balladry to epic stadium rock, while “That Wasn’t Me” effortlessly straddles country soul and pop gospel.I spent the last couple of years writing this record in a sort of discontented place.But I was able to really transcend the place I was in because it was inspiring; I was on a tour bus -- and that's inspiring to me, but it might not be inspiring to everybody else in the world.
