Carlile grew up outside of Seattle, Washington and played in clubs across the city. In 2004, she was signed to Columbia Records and released her first self-titled album in 2005. Her second album, The Story, topped international charts and sold over 257,776 copies in the U.S.

Her song “The Joke” off of the 2018 album, By The Way I Forgive You, earned her two Grammy awards for both best American roots song and best American roots performance. The album won Best Americana album.

In 2018, she founded her music festival “Girls Just Wanna Weekend” in Cancun, Mexico. The festival headlined female only bands and artists like The Indigo Girls, Maren Morris and Patty Griffin. Most recently, she’s collaborated with big names like Noah Khan, Hozier and Miley Cyrus on their albums.  

Joining Carlile on the Koussevitzky Music Shed, is a group she performed with during her Seattle beginnings, The Hanseroth Twins. Phillip John and Timothy Jay Hanseroth have been writing music since the 90’s and have written many widely popular Carlile songs such as “The Joke,” “The Story,” and “The Eye.” They’ve performed alongside Carlile herself as well as Joni Mitchell and Kristoffer Kristofferson.
