Brandi Carlile's acclaimed 2018 album By The Way, I Forgive You was helmed by Grammy Award-winning producer Dave Cobb and acclaimed musician Shooter Jennings, and was recorded at Nashville's historic RCA Studio A. By The Way, I Forgive You includes 10 new songs written by Carlile and longtime collaborators and bandmates Tim and Phil Hanseroth.
Of their close relationship, Brandi comments, "The Twins and I have been in a band for so long now. And not just a band, we are literally a family. When you create art with twins, it becomes unclear when I end and where they begin." In addition to Carlile (vocals, guitar, piano), Tim Hanseroth (vocals, bass), Phil Hanseroth (vocals, guitar), Cobb (guitar, percussion) and Jennings (piano, organ), the album features Chris Powell (drums), Josh Neumann (cello), John Mark Painter (French horn) as well as string arrangements and conducting by the late Paul Buckmaster (Elton John, The Rolling Stones).
"This album deserves to be mainstream," Cobb says. "It's one of those records that people who love classic records will appreciate – and people who love really great songwriting, and people who love great singers. It's art, and this feels like this is a moment when art can break through to the mainstream."
