Songs Carlile plays for 'World Cafe':
- "Fall Apart Again"
- "Throw It All Away"
- "Hiding My Heart"
Brandi Carlile spent her days playing music alongside her siblings; she taught herself to sing while growing up in the remote town of Ravensdale, Wash. She recently released a self-titled debut album to great acclaim.
Her music reflects Carlile's upbringing — it has an open naturalness to it that suggests the singer hasn't strayed far from her roots. And some of the music for her debut was even recorded in Carlile's log-cabin home, where the high ceilings and wooden walls yield an authentic sound.
