Produced by Brandi Carlile with Phil and Tim Hanseroth, In The Canyon Haze is reimagined Laurel Canyon-inspired versions of each song from Carlile’s acclaimed 2021 album, In These Silent Days, along with a bonus disc of acoustic versions, plus a special rendition of David Bowie’s “Space Oddity.”
In These Silent Days
was the follow-up to Brandi Carlile's 2018 album, By The Way, I Forgive You, recorded at Nashville's RCA Studio A with producers Dave Cobb and Shooter Jennings. Tim Hanseroth (vocals, bass), Phil Hanseroth (vocals, guitar), Cobb (guitar, percussion), Jennings (piano, organ, synth), Chris Powell (drums, percussion), and Josh Neumann (strings) all appear on the album, and Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig of Lucius make a guest appearance adding backing vocals to "You And Me On The Rock." In These Silent Days was inspired by the mining of Carlile’s own history while writing last year’s #1 New York Times Best Selling memoir, Broken Horses.
In addition to collaborative projects with Elton John, the Highwomen, Tanya Tucker, Soundgarden, Alicia Keys, Dolly Parton, Barry Gibb, Leslie Jordan, Brandy Clark and more, Carlile has earned six Grammy Awards recognizing her work as a performer, songwriter and producer, was awarded Billboard’s Women In Music Trailblazer Award, CMT’s Next Women of Country Impact Award and received multiple recognitions from the Americana Music Association Honors & Awards including 2021’s Artist of the Year, 2020’s Album of the Year (The Highwomen), Group of the Year (The Highwomen) and Song of the Year (“Crowded Table”) and 2019’s Artist of the Year.
In 2022 she also made her debut as the musical guest on NBC’s Saturday Night Live, returned to The Ellen DeGeneres Show to guest host and debut “You And Me On The Rock,” and debuted “This Time Tomorrow” on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. She also performed “Right On Time” at the 64th Annual Grammy Awards, where the song was nominated for Record of the Year and Song of the Year. Additionally, if she wasn’t already busy enough, Carlile performed Joni Mitchell’s legendary album Blue in its entirety at Carnegie Hall.
Outside of their work as a band, Carlile and the Hanseroth twins remain committed to social activism and advocacy. Together they are founders of the Looking Out Foundation, which amplifies the impact of music by empowering those without a voice with varied initiatives including campaigns focused on Children in Conflict/War Child, The IF Project, Fund Racial Justice and more. To date, they have raised over $3 million for grassroots causes.
