Brandi Carlile Announces Select 2019 Tour Dates
Brandi Carlile will continue her extensive tour through 2019 including a special debut headline performance at New York City's Madison Square Garden on September 14. Additional stops include Chicago's Huntington Bank Pavilion at Northerly Island, St. Paul's Minnesota State Fair, Philadelphia's The Mann and Berkeley's The Greek Theatre at UC Berkeley among others. Tickets for the newly announced shows go on-sale this Friday, February 8 at 10:00am local time. See below for complete details.
These performances celebrate a monumental year for Carlile, who is the most nominated female artist at the 61st GRAMMY Awards with six nominations including Album Of The Year (By The Way, I Forgive You), Record Of The Year ("The Joke"), Song Of The Year ("The Joke"), Best Americana Album (By The Way, I Forgive You), Best American Roots Song ("The Joke") and Best American Roots Performance ("The Joke"). Carlile will also perform during the live GRAMMY broadcast this Sunday, February 10 on CBS.
Produced by Grammy-Award winning producer Dave Cobb and acclaimed musician Shooter Jennings and recorded at Nashville's historic RCA Studio A, By The Way, I Forgive You includes ten new songs written by Carlile and longtime collaborators and bandmates Tim and Phil Hanseroth. Of their close relationship, Brandi comments, "The Twins and I have been in a band for so long now. And not just a band, we are literally a family. When you create art with twins, it becomes unclear when I end and where they begin." In addition to Carlile (vocals, guitar, piano), Tim Hanseroth (vocals, bass), Phil Hanseroth (vocals, guitar), Cobb (guitar, percussion) and Jennings (piano, organ), the album features Chris Powell (drums), Josh Neumann (cello), John Mark Painter (French horn) as well as string arrangements and conducting by the late Paul Buckmaster (Elton John, The Rolling Stones).
Additionally, the official music video for Carlile's song "Party Of One" starring Elisabeth Moss recently premiered. Produced by Whooden Collective, the video stars Moss, who also served as Creative Director and Producer, and features a female-led crew including Bérénice Eveno (Director), Nicole Disson (Co-star), Diane Pellegrino (Producer), Garen Barsegian (Executive Producer), Kate Siegel (Executive Producer), Tara Bassim (Line Producer) and Cristina Dunlap (Cinematographer). Moreover, a duet version of the song, featuring Sam Smith, premiered earlier this fall. Profits from the recording benefit Children in Conflict via Brandi Carlile's Looking Out Foundation as part of its ongoing campaign to raise $1 million for children impacted by war.

Over the course of their acclaimed career, Carlile and her band have released six albums, including 2015's The Firewatcher's Daughter, which garnered a Grammy nomination for Best Americana Album. Additionally, in 2017, they released Cover Stories: Brandi Carlile Celebrates 10 Years of the Story (An Album to Benefit War Child), which features 14 artists covering the songs on their breakthrough album The Story with all proceeds benefiting War Child. Artists included on the acclaimed project, which Rolling Stone calls, "tender and powerful," include Dolly Parton, Adele, Pearl Jam, Kris Kristofferson, The Avett Brothers, Margo Price and Jim James as well as a forward written by President Obama.
