Check out what former RFT music editor Kiernan Maletsky had to say about the Carlile in this 2012 feature story:

Brandi Carlile has spent much of her career figuring out ways to go bigger. After back-to-back records produced by T Bone Burnett and Rick Rubin, respectively, she and her performing and songwriting partners Phil and Tim Hanseroth took the biggest home-run swing known to rock music by performing with a symphony. The results were documented in 2011's Live at Benaroya Hall with the Seattle Symphony.

And Carlile is equal to these ambitions. As a vocalist, she is propulsive and devastating -- Sheryl Crow described it as "the most amazing voice I may have ever heard. Soulful. Country. Perfect in every way...and propelled by taste."
