O'Keeffe Indigo Hinting
Brandi Carlile is a PERFORMER. Raised in an isolated home in Washington state, Brandi sang country music from age 8 until high school, when she "used Elton John as my gateway drug to other music." Brandi's a good singer; she's a good guitar player; yet what she really is is a PERFORMER. Judge for yourself, in this rendition of Johnny Cash' "Folsom City Blues". As you watch, consider that Johnny Cash was not great because he could play and sing. Johnny Cash was great because he could PERFORM.
