'The Story,' Brandi Carlile
From 2007's 'The Story'
Every few years I find a song that captures a truth in my life that I was never able to articulate. Wham! The light goes on and I'm amazed that another human being gets me yet doesn't even know me. This time around it's Brandi Carlile's 'The Story.'
I first heard this song when Brandi came by for a conference room performance. It may not be the choicest of venues, but she knocked it out of the park. "All of these lines across my face, tell you a story of who I am," she sings with a vocal inflection that echoes her agony. In the tune, Brandi is filled with the triumph of finding a person to share her life with and the realization that in doing so, you're putting all of your eggs into one basket. And just like that my life makes sense again. Thanks, Brandi.
