“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” from the concert here.
