Brandi Carlile

When: Sat., May 30, 8 p.m. 2015

Here’s a bit from our last interview with Carlile, about her songwriting work with twins Tim and Phil Hanseroth: “They’re not my actual siblings, but we’ve been playing together for over ten years now. One of them is married to my little sister. And they have a baby, my niece Josephine who’s six months old and tours with us. She’s not just my niece — she’s Phil’s twin brother’s niece, so me and Tim share a niece. We all live in the same small town. They all moved here from Seattle. It really works for us, to be together here, on the road and in the studio and also to be together at Thanksgiving, Christmas. For the twins to come to my baptism, for me to go to a family member’s funeral. For us, it works that way. And the reason it works that way is because of the writing process. It turns three separate songwriters into one very diverse songwriter. When Phil or Tim turns a song in to me as an interpreter, it’s not difficult for me to understand it or perform it, because we essentially have parallel lives.”
