The New Yorker
In a recent issue of The New Yorker, the recipient of the 2010 City of Music Breakthrough Award, Brandi Carlile, speaks about ghosts. In a very Halloween appropriate article, the singer-songwriter visits a haunted house with her band mates, Phil and Tim Hanseroth aka “The Twins.” After touring for years together, the three are like family, a bond that shows in their music. This kind of aura that has developed amongst the musicians has helped fuel the band’s interest in the supernatural (hence haunted house visits while on tour) as well as their latest album title, Give Up the Ghost. The article states, “the band has been trying to unravel the mystery of its live performances: what is it that makes a show good, and how can it be captured on a record?” To read more about Carlile’s music and her spooky pastimes, follow the link above.
