Three-time Grammy Award winning singer-songwriter Brandi Carlile has announced a performance at Auckland’s Town Hall on Sunday 12 April.

The one-off New Zealand date forms part of her current tour in celebration of her stand-out album, By The Way, I Forgive You.

Produced by Dave Cobb and Shooter Jennings and recorded at Nashville’s historic RCA Studio A, the album includes 10 songs written by Carlile and long-time collaborators and bandmates Tim and Phil Hanseroth, including The Joke.

Most recently, the Americana artist debuted the acclaimed collaborative movement The Highwomen with fellow members Maren Morris, Amanda Shires and Natalie Hemby.

Released to overwhelming critical praise, the collective’s self-titled debut album was released earlier this month via Low Country/Sounds Elektra Records with Rolling Stone saying it’s, “a country album for the ages, filled with joy, laughter, tears, pain, and shit-kicking honky-tonk soul”.

Carlile has also just co-produced legendary country artist Tanya Tucker’s critically acclaimed new album While I’m Livin’ with Shooter Jennings.

Over the course of their acclaimed career, Carlile and her band have released six albums, including 2017’s Cover Stories: Brandi Carlile Celebrates 10 Years of the Story (An Album to Benefit War Child), which features 14 artists covering the songs on their breakthrough album The Story with all proceeds benefiting War Child. Artists included on the acclaimed project include, Dolly Parton, Adele, Pearl Jam, Kris Kristofferson, The Avett Brothers, Margo Price and Jim James as well as a foreword written by President Obama.
