Brandi Carlile In Concert

June 6, 2012The folk-rock performer brings her innovative guitar work and powerful vocals to the World Cafe Live stage in Philadelphia. Here, Carlile performs songs from her new album, Bear Creek.

Brandi Carlile has toured virtually non-stop for eight years, sharing the stage with Dave Matthews Band, Ray LaMontagne, The Indigo Girls and The Avett Brothers, among others. She's released four well-liked albums and several EPs in the span of six years, and now she's back with a personal and down-to-earth new record, titled Bear Creek.

Produced by Grammy-winning engineer Trina Shoemaker, Bear Creek finds Carlile in her element: She recorded it in a rural Washington barn, surrounded by family and friends. The result is a great mix of classic rock, folk, bluegrass and soul. Out this month, Bear Creek represents a step forward for Carlile, who took on a greater role in helping to produce the album.

Here, Carlile performs a concert at World Cafe Live in Philadelphia, as part of WXPN's Non-Commvention.
