To Be Still

The follow-up to her 2006 debut The Pirate's Gospel. Both flinty and beautiful, she draws from a tradition that might include Sandy Denny and Karen Dalton.

"Accompanied mostly by her acoustic guitar, newcomer Alela Diane sings stark, ghostly folk...She's already flaunting a large, lived-in growl flavored by antediluvian blues and jazz inflections" - Spin

Overview

The follow-up to her 2006 debut The Pirate's Gospel. Both flinty and beautiful, she draws from a tradition that might include Sandy Denny and Karen Dalton.

"Accompanied mostly by her acoustic guitar, newcomer Alela Diane sings stark, ghostly folk...She's already flaunting a large, lived-in growl flavored by antediluvian blues and jazz inflections" - Spin.

"Echoing wide, her timbre is rich and thick and her range is higher than most acoustic singer-songwriters, bringing each track to peaks and valleys that draw you in" - Venus
