“Echoes Through The Canyon”—Brandi Carlile’s triumphant return to Washington’s legendary Gorge Amphitheatre—will be simultaneously livestreamed via Veeps on Saturday, August 14 (tickets available here). In addition to Carlile, the historic concert will feature nine-time Grammy Award winning artist, close friend and frequent
collaborator, Sheryl Crow, along with acclaimed emerging songwriter and musician, Amythyst Kiah. The first streamed amphitheater show since Veeps began equipping venues across the country with turnkey livestreaming, the concert is also Carlile’s first full capacity hybrid show and will be available to re-watch through August 28.
The performance comes in advance of the six-time Grammy Award-winning singer, songwriter, performer, producer and New York Times Best Selling author’s highly anticipated new album, In These Silent Days, which will be released October 1 on Low Country Sound/Elektra Records (pre-order/pre-save). Ahead of the release, the album’s first single, “Right On Time,” featuring a music video directed by Courteney Cox, recently premiered. Watch/share HERE.
Of the album, Carlile shares,
“Never before have the twins and I written an album during a time of such uncertainty and quiet solitude. I never imagined that I’d feel so exposed and weird as an artist without the armor of a costume, the thrill of an applause and the platform of the sacred stage.
Despite all this, the songs flowed through—pure and unperformed, loud and proud, joyful and mournful. Written in my barn during a time of deep and personal reckoning.
There’s plenty reflection…but mostly it’s a celebration.
This album is what drama mixed with joy sounds like. It’s resistance and gratitude, righteous anger and radical forgiveness.
It’s the sound of these silent days.”
Released to widespread acclaim, Carlile debuted the song last week on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” with NPR Music praising, “Just when we needed her, Brandi Carlile returns,” while Billboard calls the single, “gorgeous,” Stereogum declares, “tremendous,” Rolling Stone asserts, “cathartic” and Variety proclaims, “there’s no more anticipated album this year than the one Carlile has coming this fall.”
