Brandi Carlile plays songs by Bowie, Sheryl Crow + more in a new episode of Somewhere Over The Rainbow

Brandi Carlile

Six-time GRAMMY Award-winning singer-songwriter, producer, and #1 New York Times bestselling author Brandi Carlile has joined SiriusXM for a monthly radio show, Somewhere Over the Radio. The new show features music she loves, with a focus on artists who are part of the LGBTQIA+ community and their allies.

Hear new episodes every first Wednesday of every month at 2 pm ET on The Spectrum (Ch. 28) or on the SXM App here anytime after the premiere.

In the third episode, premiering Wednesday, October 5 at 2 pm ET, Carlile is joined by her wife, Catherine, and together they play songs from David Bowie, Sheryl Crow, Courtney Barnett, Joan Armatrading and more. Carlile will also share personal anecdotes between songs and engage in candid conversations with her guests.

“This show is about the impact that LGBTQIA + artists have made on the world, the spiritual realm, and certainly our family through the transcendence of music,” says Carlile. “Queer artists and pioneers have given my wife and I everything that we have, including each other. Let’s shine a little light on queer excellence today.”

In 2021, Carlile delivered an unforgettable set for SiriusXM’s Small Stage Series, playing her biggest hits and songs from her then-new album In These Silent Days on an outdoor stage at Stephen Talkhouse in Amagansett, New York. Watch her cover of Joni Mitchell’s classic “Woodstock” below.
