Brandi Carlile Excels and Evolves On New Album

The cover of Brandi Carlile’s latest record, The Firewatcher’s Daughter, is incredibly misleading. Its a beautifully simplistic cover with Carlile peering out from beneath her floppy hat, bathed in a warm amber glow. Stunning…but inaccurate. The casual observer will see The Firewatcher’s Daughter as the latest record from the woman who brought us 2007’s powerful […]

Live Music Week: Crazyhearse LIVE In Studio

Live Music Week: Crazyhearse LIVE In Studio

Crazyhearse is far from the conventional band that you can pin down to a single genre.

  Georgia Nott, with her booming vocals, and Caleb Nott, with his impeccable synth skills, make up the brother-sister duo known as Broods.
