Brandi M. Carlile (born June 1, 1981) is an American alternative country and folk rock singer-songwriter. She has released six albums including The Story, Give Up the Ghost and Live at Benaroya Hall with the Seattle Symphony, the last reaching number 14 on the Top Rock Albums chart. Her first commercial album, Brandi Carlile, was released to critical acclaim and limited commercial success. Her 2007 single The Story, from the album of the same name, was a greater commercial success, and was featured in an episode of the TV drama Grey's Anatomy, as well as a General Motors commercial.

Carlile’s music through the years has been categorized in several genres, including pop, rock, alternative country, and folk. Carlile once quoted, "I've gone through all sorts of vocal phases, from pop to blues to R&B, but no matter what I do, I just can't get the country and western out of my voice". After being introduced to the music of Elton John, Carlile taught herself to play piano, and at 17 learned to play the guitar.
