After the release of her first self-titled album Brandie Carlile, she performed as a supporting act and headliner for artists including The Fray, Chris Isaak, Ray Lamontagne, Indigo Girls amongst others.
Brandie continued to perform live and collaborated with many worldwide artists like Maroon 5, One Republic and Elton John.
