Brandi Carlile, hailing from a tiny town in Washington State, recently performed a few songs on NPR’s World Café. Carlile’s big break came in 2004, when she signed with Columbia Records. This year’s Give Up the Ghost, her third album, has brought even more national attention to this singer-songwriter. Click the above link to listen to the set.

There’s no place like home, said Brandi Carlile. The Maple Valley singer- songwriter returns to Seattle Saturday at the Paramount. She’s also plotting a possible secret show at the Crocodile — all in promotion of her latest critically rated album, “Give Up The Ghost,” out earlier this month. The album boasts a prizewinning lineup — Elton John, Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith, Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers keyboardist Benmont Tench and Amy Ray from the Indigo Girls. And like her previous work, it showcases her main instrument — her voice — which wails and cracks at her whim.
