Glide Magazine is proud to announce the exclusive premiere of Brandi Carlile’s latest music video for "The Story," from her latest release, Live at Benaroya Hall with the Seattle Symphony.
Back in November 2010, Carlile and her band joined with the Seattle Symphony for two shows. On May 3rd, Columbia Records released an album chronicling those evenings. Coupled with a 30-piece symphony, Carlile brings to life favorites from her entire career, such as "Turpentine," "Dreams" and Leonard Cohen’s celebrated "Hallelujah." It’s a tour de force of a record, and one that captures the incredible energy of Carlile’s band and the vivaciousness of their live show.

Artist Monkmus directed the video for "The Story (Live at Benaroya Hall)," using a drawn animation technique that beautifully complements the song. He states, "No other animation technique possesses the ability to convey subtle acting and emotions the way drawn animation does, with its use of expressive lines in combination with painterly backdrops." Focusing on the image of a house elevated above the ocean on stilts, the video follows a woman’s journey as she interfaces with the house and its stories within. Monkmus attended the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) and has directed many acclaimed animated music videos, including promos for Death Cab for Cutie, Badly Drawn Boy, Mogwai, Kid Koala and Los Campesinos!
