brandi-carlile-2007

oh my god i love that picture so much.

it deserves it’s own sentence.

i love it.

brandi, brandi, brandi.  to tell you the truth, i’m a late bloomer when it comes to brandi carlile.  i was only just introduced to her in may of this year and had the pleasure of hearing her play a couple of songs outside a local record store in my small city.  i have since become obsessed with her latest album, The Story.  it’s lovely and folksy and whimsical.  it has been my soundtrack for the whole summer.  care to listen?  here’s a snippet:

also she loves the environment and talked about her involvement with the GM commercial to paste magazine

brandi

and these lyrics from wasted kill me:

If you had eyes like golden crowns and diamonds in your fingertips you’d waste it

If shining wisdom passed your lips and traveled to the ears of god you’d waste it

And so I hate that your overrated most revered and celebrated cause you’re wasted

she’s a conscious citizen, she’s real cute, she plays the guitar- yup i’m a little bit in love with her.  can’t wait for her concert this fall. i will be gazing into her eyes imagining she is gazing back into mine.
