Giveaway Info

Brandi Carlile is a singer-songwriter who has cited influences as various as Elton John, Patsy Cline, and Queen's Freddie Mercury. Carlile has been releasing albums for the past 10 years, and Fresh Air rock critic Ken Tucker says her new one, called The Firewatcher's Daughter, is her best yet.

Recorded almost entirely in first takes without rehearsals, The Firewatcher's Daughter is Brandi Carlile's most immediate and energetic album to date. The rocket fuel burning through the uptempo "Mainstream Kid" translates into Carlile breaking free of any second-guessing or hesitancy in her approach. Working with producers Tim and Phil Hanseroth, who've been in her camp since her 2005 debut, Carlile approaches this album like it's her first and no one knows who she is. Not that she throws away her finesse. "Wilder (We're Chained)" centers on carefully fingerpicked guitars, chilling harmonies, and even strategically placed strings for maximum effect.
