About Brandy Clark
11x Grammy-nominated singer, songwriter and musician Brandy Clark‘s new song, “Northwest,” is out now. Listen/share HERE.
Of the song, Clark shares, “Being born and raised in western Washington, it was all I knew until I moved to Nashville in my early 20s.

This song is an homage to that beautiful place and time I grew up in.”
“Northwest” is the third song unveiled from Clark’s highly-anticipated new self-titled album, which was produced by 9x Grammy-winner Brandi Carlile and was released May 19, 2023 on Warner Records.
