Brandi Carlile - "Tragedy (Austin Cello Version)"
My love affair with Brandi Carlile goes back many years. Seeing her recently cover Fleetwood Mac with her new supergroup The Highwomen was incredible, but it made me start thinking about when I fell in love with her. This song was the first time I heart her voice, and I immediately knew that this was a musician who sang from the soul. Not with soul, but from the soul.
Her ability to craft a lyric into a perfect little blade that cuts right through your armor and into your heart is incredible.
So today, with an eye to the past and a heart to the future, I choose Brandi Carlile’s "Tragedy (Austin Cello Version)" as my, break open, the more of you that falls away the more you will reveal, cracks let the light out, song for a, broken can be beautiful too, hold yourself together, one more soggy step and you’re home, Tuesday.
