Brandi Carlile - Live at Benaroya Hall with the Seattle Symphony
Brandi Carlile is one of the few musicians able to make pop-rock that appeals to the Americana set.
She he grew up listening to Elton John, whose "Sixty Years On" kicks off this live set that pairs her with the Seattle Symphony. Her own music has always had a sense of heightened experience that makes for great art. The Seattle Symphony adds drama, punching up the sound with horns, woodwinds, and strings.
