Reg’s Coffee House and
B’ham Mountain Radio
Present: Brandi Carlile

WorkPlay, August 13, 8:00 PM

On the heels of Carlile’s 5th major label album release BEAR CREEK and after almost a decade of extensive touring, the trio and self-confessed “road dogs” and “dirty pioneers” are back with a bang. But it’s not record sales, industry accolades or commercial success that make Brandi Carlile a uniquely compelling artist; in fact some would say she has purposely gone out of her way to avoid it. It’s tales from the road, where she and the twins have spent the best part of their careers building Carlile’s fan base and audience, whilst remaining under the industry radar, that tells you the story of who she really is. Catch Brandi Carlile live at Workplay on August 13 and get the whole story.  More details here
