Listen now here.
Branch originally released “The Spirit Room” in August 2001. It sold 2 million copies in the U.S. The seminal album featured the infectious and heartfelt hits “Everywhere” and “All You Wanted,” and ushered in a new era of young women writing and performing their own songs.
Branch was 17 when she released her highly acclaimed debut album. She followed it up with 2003’s “Hotel Paper,” which debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard album chart and became Branch’s second Platinum-selling disc in the U.S. It spawned the hit single “Are You Happy Now?” which was nominated for a Grammy Award for “Best Female Rock Performance.” Branch also won a Grammy for singing on Carlos Santana’s “The Game of Love,” which reached No. 5 on Billboard’s Hot 100 and spent many weeks atop the Billboard Adult Contemporary chart.
In 2006, Branch found success with modern-country duo The Wreckers, whose debut, “Stand Still, Look Pretty,” was praised by critics for breaking down barriers between pop and country. The Gold-certified album spawned the hit single “Leave the Pieces,” which topped the Hot Country Songs chart for several weeks, as well as “My Oh My” and “Tennessee,” and earned Branch her fourth Grammy nomination. (She was also nominated for Best New Artist in 2003.)
In 2017, Branch released her critically acclaimed fourth album, “Hopeless Romantic,” produced by husband Patrick Carney (The Black Keys).
