Brandi Carlile Announces New Album, ‘Bear Creek’

On June 5, Columbia Records will release singer-songwriter-guitarist Brandi Carlile’s fourth studio album, Bear Creek. Carlile, hailed as "the best voice in indie rock" by Paste Magazine, will tour extensively in support of the record. She’ll kick off a series of six dates with Dave Matthews Band on June 26 at Susquehanna Bank Center in Camden, NJ and headline the 9,450-seat Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, CO on July 14. Additional tour dates will be announced soon.

The event will also feature such artists as Carolina Chocolate Drops, Kenny Chesney, Chris Cornell, Ronnie Dunn, Jamey Johnson, Kris Kristofferson, Ray LaMontagne, Amy Lee and Lucinda Williams.

Named for the studio where most of the album was recorded – Bear Creek Studios, which is housed in a converted early 20th century barn near Carlile’s hometown of Seattle – it features her longtime band mates: Tim and Phil Hanseroth ("The Twins," who co-wrote many of the songs with Carlile and play guitar and bass respectively), drummer/percussionist Allison Miller and cellist Josh Neumann plus Dave Palmer on keyboards and Jeb Bows on violin and mandolin. Drummer Matt Chamberlain guests on several tracks.

GRAMMY® winning engineer/producer/mixer Trina Shoemaker (Sheryl Crow, Emmylou Harris, Queens of the Stone Age) and Brandi and The Twins produced the Bear Creek Studios sessions.
