It’s a matter of scientific fact how powerful Brandi Carlile’s voice is. She’s left her mark forever on our hearts, and somehow, with her brand new record, In These Silent Days, she grinds our emotions into powdery dust. “Letter to the Past” arrives at a time when we all could use it most, a mid-tempo ballad written to her younger self. “You’re a stone wall in a world full of rubber bands,” she sings. Her voice is unwavering, imparting a vital message about endurance through life’s most terrible moments. We dare you not to cry.
