Alela Diane  β€’ songstress etc. β€’ mama life: @mamaalela β€’ portland, oregon β€’


Sunday is perfect for wandering in the tall trees with family. I'm loving the shift to fall & grateful we have a wooded park 5 minutes from our home in the city.

Had the pleasure of sharing my complicated birth story with @cturlington of @everymomcounts for @thevioletbook to raise awareness about maternal death around the world. Also had the pleasure of being photographed by my dear friend @carissajg and styled by the lovely @doriasantlofer for the story. Who knew that nearly dying in childbirth would result in such a wonderful opportunity?! πŸ’•

A snippet of a song off the new record, performed in one of my favorite corners of our home this morning during a rare moment of solitude. I'm looking forward to getting back into my music again soon, and diving into all sorts of creative projects that for the moment only live within me. #folkmusic #aleladiane #portlandmusic #plants #girlwithguitar #singersongwriter #denim #tryingouthashtags πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ

1. grateful for the rain tonight, it nearly brought me to tears
2. have had no words for this imploding natural disaster of a week; it's been weird and sad
2. we organized drawers and the basement when there was too much smoke to go outside...aka controlling what we can control
4. I'd like to be well rested again someday, grateful that this is my biggest problem
5. we have the worst president

For those of us born between generations - who had childhoods free of cell phones and had weird dial up Internet in high school... building a website for oneself can feel like a true accomplishment. I've still got some work to do, and it's not up yet...but it will be soon. Some people have seamlessly integrated technology into their lives, for me, it's been a struggle. Small steps to catch up to the millennials, something that may or may not ever be possible. πŸ˜¬πŸ’•

Post eclipse windy beach day as experienced from the tent. The totality nearly brought me to tears, so awe struck. Of course, no photo taken by me could begin to capture how it felt, but is was insane. Such power and stillness in that moment. πŸŒ‘πŸŒ•

Been listening to all these beautiful records by lesser known ladies a lot lately. Music still helps spread a little light when our world is as sad and troubled as it is today. As I've gotten older, and since I've had daughters, I've thought often about how competitive women can be with each other, how we're taught that as girls. In music, and in an industry so overrun by men, we women are often compared to each other - our voices, our style, whose hair is longer, whose face is prettier etc. etc. etc. Our songs are sold on the basis of our sex appeal and our youthful appearance - And making it in this industry often seems like a ridiculous popularity contest. It's not even about the music. It's been good to recognize this and to support my contemporaries - I know they're up against the same patriarchy as we all are. If you need some new jams, check out these stunning albums by: @courtneymarieandrews @oracogan @woodsbroderick @kaceyjohansing And maybe put some slippers on - it's Sunday and lots of sad and hateful shit has been going down. πŸ™πŸΌπŸ’•

"The days move slow, but the years do know: time couldn't move any faster." Some words from a song I wrote that you haven't heard yet. The days sometimes actually feel like the slowest thing ever: Molasses. Lately I've found it's better to surrender completely. To let go and to enjoy the beautiful shadows or piece of trash V finds and wants to bring home. In bed before sundown again, and grateful to be doing my best with the task at hand. ✊🏼

Was having a conversation about my music career & at that exact moment stumbled upon my face on a telephone pole from my record release show in 2013...I guess I've been out there all along, promoting myself through the seasons πŸ€”πŸ€£!

V's art has been pretty amazing lately. I have a feeling that it might be her thing, which would make a lot of sense since her granny and great-grandmother are both painters. I love how she makes each stroke with such intention. πŸ‘©πŸΌβ€πŸŽ¨

Vera fell asleep in the car, and because we live in the city, I have to camp out in the front yard while she snoozes... mostly watching the baby get frustrated about rolling over and breastfeeding, but trying to play a little geetar and write something (a list, maybe?)... My brain feels a little like a mashed potato though, and I've got always got too many pots on the stove. Do I get an A for effort, anyway?
