“absolutely breathtaking, across the whole album Brandi Carlile pulls out all the stops. It’s just extraordinary…
she’s just claiming rock god status

NPR Music

“again and again, Carlile’s purity – as a singer, a songwriter, a musician, an artist – is its own captivating element, an intangible soulfulness that burrows its way into your heart”
USA Today

“Carlile effortlessly glides between octaves while, somehow, still sounding completely conversational – the everyday diva we didn’t know we needed until she showed up at our door”

“In These Silent Days is brilliantly intimate…once again magnificent – a triumphant patchwork of Americana, folk-rock, pop and soul anchored by yet another show-stopping centerpiece”

“a first-rate singer-songwriter of uncommon empathy and range”
Rolling Stone

“In These Silent Days finds Carlile reaching even bigger vocal heights, even bolder flourishes, the kind of awakening we needed to cut through our new lives of isolation”

“a lyric poet and storyteller in the truest sense”
The Advocate

“Brandi Carlile is a portrait of grace
and acceptance on In These Silent Days”
Entertainment Weekly

Only a global pandemic could have forced Brandi Carlile to hit pause. After two hard-fought decades-in-the-making, Carlile was in the midst of experiencing the biggest highs of her acclaimed career thus far. From a show-stealing debut at the 61st GRAMMY® Awards, to her first sold-out arena show at Madison Square Garden, to an ever-growing number of awards and accolades, all-star collaborations, and countless other staggering achievements. 

Finding herself stuck at home outside of Seattle in the rural foothills of the Cascade Mountains, Carlile had no choice but to slow down, reassess and realign her priorities. Luckily for Carlile, home happens to be a 90-acre compound shared with not only her wife, Catherine, and two daughters, but also her chosen family: longtime collaborators and bandmates Tim and Phil Hanseroth as well as her cello player Josh Neumann among an ever-growing contingency. 

It was during this time that In These Silent Days took shape. Inspired by the mining of her own history while writing her #1 New York Times best selling memoir Broken Horses, the new ten-song record chronicles acceptance, faith, loss and love and channels icons like David Bowie, Freddie Mercury, Elton John and Joni Mitchell—the latter two who, by some sort of cosmic alignment of the stars, have turned out to be close friends in addition to being her biggest heroes and inspirations.

Reuniting with producers Dave Cobb and Shooter Jennings, the album takes Carlile’s voice, which The New York Times says, “sounds like an element of nature,” and pushes it to even greater heights and dramatic peaks. From the anthemic first single “Right On Time” to the intimately romantic “You and Me On The Rock” and the blistering “Broken Horses,” the songs tell a story of connection and empathy in the midst of distance and estrangement, and showcase an artist continuing to push herself and widen her arms around an inclusive, ever-growing island of misfits.
