It would be awfully unfortunate to call Brandi Carlile a "singer-songwriter," because her music is much more than that term's sometimes negative and boring connotation. The problem is, there are times that her studio work doesn't catch fire that her live performances always do. And while today's Jam of the Day, "Raise Hell," taken from Carlile's latest release, Bear Creek, is absolutely hell raising in its live form, the studio cut isn't a let down -- it's a fine representation of her powerful band, led by guitarists Tim and Phil Hanseroth.
Carlile will be opening for the Dave Matthews Band at Verizon Wireless Amphitheater on July 11th in Saint Louis. You can read our interview with her here.
