"Brandi Carlile tells stories that encourage us to see ourselves in one another." —Barack Obama, forward note to Cover Stories
The Grammy–nominated singer-songwriter, whose career was launched with the 2007 LP The Story, comes to Stanford with longtime bandmates Tim and Phil Hanseroth (aka “the Twins”) as part of their winter holiday tour. Carlile's newest album, Cover Stories, celebrates the 10th anniversary of her breakout album with a few notable “heroes and friends” covering her songs: Dolly Parton, Adele, Pearl Jam, the Avett Brothers, and the Indigo Girls, to name a few. Proceeds from the album benefit War Child UK.
OPENING ACT: The evening begins with an opening set by Savannah Conley.
