Carlile is known for her powerful voice and for her activism for causes ranging from spreading awareness for health issues to LGBT rights and the empowerment of women.

Her 2007 single “The Story”, from her album of the same name. In 2017, The Story was awarded Gold status by the RIAA for selling 500,000 copies, and Carlile released Cover Stories with 14 artists covering tracks from the original The Story album, including Adele, Pearl Jam, and Dolly Parton, benefitting War Child UK, a charity organization to benefit children whose lives have been directly affected by war.

She has gone on to co-found Looking Out with Phil Hanseroth, a nonprofit that amplifies the impact of music by empowering those without a voice.

“We band together with fans, nonprofits, and corporations to translate voices of song to voices of action,” she and Hanseroth say. “We are nimble to the ever-changing needs of the human race and adapt to support the diverse demographic we serve. Every campaign we launch is backed by our passionate donors and fans, and $1.50 from every concert ticket sold goes directly toward our efforts. Together, we’re making music mean more.”

By the Way Berkshires is a digital magazine exploring creative life and community — art and performance, food and the outdoors — and I’m writing it for you, with local voices, because I’ve gotten to know this rich part of the world as a writer and journalist, and I want to share it with you.

If you’d like to see the website grow, you can join me for a few dollars a month, enough for a cup of coffee and a cider doughnut. Members get access to extra stories and multimedia, itineraries a bookmark tool. Let me know what you're looking for, and we’ll explore together.
