Brandi Carlile: The Songbook Released by Alfred Music Publishing

LOS ANGELES, CA  -  Wednesday, August 24, 2011
Alfred Music Publishing, the official print music publisher of thousands of popular artists, is proud to announce the release of Brandi Carlile: The Songbook, a collectible sheet music folio to Carlile’s latest studio albums.

Brandi Carlile: The Songbook features all 35 songs from Carlile’s three studio albums, Brandi Carlile, The Story, and Give Up the Ghost. Carefully transcribed with Brandi's input and assistance, all songs are arranged just as the alt rock/country-folk singer recorded them and includes melody, lyrics, accurate guitar chord fingerings, capo positions, and TAB for critical picking parts. Guitarists, vocalists, and fans of Carlile will enjoy playing and singing to chart-topping songs such as “Fall Apart Again,” “What Can I say,” “The Story,” “Turpentine,” “Dreams,” “That Year,” “Dying Day,” and many more.

Brandi Carlile’s poignant and bittersweet songwriting has made her one of the most prominent contemporary country-rock singer/songwriters of the last decade. From the strength of her home recordings and rising independent success, Carlile was named one of 2005’s “Artists to Watch” by Rolling Stone Magazine. Her 2009 and most current studio album, Give Up the Ghost, made it to Billboard’s Top 40 albums chart. Carlile is currently touring, with her latest 2011 album Live at Benaroya Hall with the Seattle Symphony.

As part of Alfred’s ongoing commitment to improving the environment, this songbook is printed on 100% recycled paper.
