Review: Give Up The Ghost by Brandi Carlile



Brandi Carlile's newest album, Give Up The Ghosts, was released on October 6th by Columbia Records. Give Up The Ghost includes her first single, "Dream". You can listen to it by clicking on the widget below.








She has been described as having the "best voice in indie rock" and Elton John (with whom she has a duet with) has said “Brandi has an amazing voice,” and “She’s a great songwriter and has a tremendous career ahead of her.” I have to agree with him! She is such a talented singer/songwriter. Her music is outstanding!

When I first heard her song "Dreams", Peyton from One Tree Hill popped in my head. Don't ask me why. Maybe because on the show she deals with music artists and the sound is just what I associate with. However you want to put it this girl ROCKS!! They say if you you like KT Tunstall, Indigo Girls, Missy Higgins and Rachael Yamagata then you will LOVE Brandi Carlile.

The album, Give Up The Ghosts, tracks include:
Looking Out
Dying Day
Pride And Joy
Dreams
That Year
Caroline
Before It Breaks
I Will
If There Was No You
Touching The Ground
Oh Dear

I would recommend this album to anyone, actually I am...So go get it! :)
