About the Artist
Only a global pandemic could have forced Brandi Carlile to hit pause. After two hard-fought decades-in-the-making, Carlile was in the midst of experiencing the biggest highs of her acclaimed career thus far. Finding herself stuck at home in the rural foothills of the Cascade Mountains, Carlile had no choice but to slow down and realign her priorities. Luckily for Carlile, home happens to be shared with not only her wife, Catherine, and two daughters, but also her chosen family: longtime collaborators and bandmates Tim and Phil Hanseroth as well as cellist Josh Neumann among an ever-growing contingency.
It was during this time that In These Silent Days took shape. Inspired by the mining of her own history while writing her memoir, the new 10-song record chronicles acceptance, faith, loss, and love, and it channels icons like David Bowie, Freddie Mercury, Elton John, and Joni Mitchell—the latter two becoming close friends in addition to being her biggest heroes and inspirations.
From the anthemic first single “Right On Time” to the intimately romantic “You and Me On the Rock” and the blistering “Broken Horses,” the songs tell a story of connection and empathy in the midst of distance and estrangement and showcase an artist continuing to push herself and widen her arms around an inclusive, ever-growing island of misfits.
