Brandi Carlile to tour New Zealand in April 2020

Amid a landmark year—taking home three Grammy Awards in February and recently selling out the New York's legendary Madison Square Garden—alt-country singer-songwriter Brandi Carlile has finally announced an exciting one-off performance in New Zealand next year. She is set to play Auckland Town Hall in celebration of her latest album 'By The Way, I Forgive You'. Aside from her headlining NZ show, she will also be doing a special set at Byron Bay Bluesfest 2020 in Australia.

Produced by Dave Cobb and Shooter Jennings, and recorded at Nashville's historic RCA Studio A, 'By The Way, I Forgive You' includes ten songs written by Carlile and long-time collaborators and bandmates Tim and Phil Hanseroth, including 'The Joke'. Earlier this year, Carlile's live performance at the 61st Annual Grammy Awards was lauded by The New York Times, proclaiming, "Carlile's vocals were robust, ragged, full of sneer and hope. On a night curiously light on impressive singing, it was an uncomplicated, genuine, cleansing thrill."

Over the course of their acclaimed career, Carlile and her band have released six albums, including 2017's 'Cover Stories: Brandi Carlile Celebrates 10 Years of the Story' (an album to benefit War Child). It features 14 artists covering the songs on their breakthrough album 'The Story'. Artists included on the acclaimed project—which Rolling Stone calls "tender and powerful"—include Dolly Parton, Adele, Pearl Jam, Kris Kristofferson, The Avett Brothers, Margo Price and Jim James as well as a foreword written by President Obama.

Most recently, Carlile debuted the acclaimed collaborative movement 'The Highwomen' with fellow members Maren Morris, Amanda Shires and Natalie Hemby. Released to overwhelming critical praise, the collective's self-titled debut album was released earlier this month via Low Country/Sounds Elektra Records. Stereogum declares, "'The Highwomen' are the country supergroup this moment demands… the album is a creative triumph and a meaningful cultural artifact; the joy and resilience emanating off it is worth a fortune," whilst Rolling Stone praises, "a country album for the ages, filled with joy, laughter, tears, pain, and sh*t-kicking honky-tonk soul." Adding to her monumental year, Carlile also co-produced Tanya Tucker's critically-acclaimed new album 'While I'm Livin' with Shooter Jennings.
