Highlighting under the radar arts and culture in Birmingham, UK

Alela Diane

Alela Diane

On September 16th Alela Diane plays the Town Hall. The Californian singer/songwriter grew up in a household immersed in music, but only started to write her own music and teach herself guitar in 2003. Beautiful, flowing, dreamy folk about family and nature.

After being offered to support Queen Faerie of nu-folk Joanna Newsom, she released her self-financed debut, Forest Parade. Travels around Europe and a summer of parties and camping inspired her second release, The Pirate’s Gospel. The album caught the attention of  Holocene Music in the US and Names Records in the UK. The gentle, intimate melodies and her beautifuly warm voice found many fans, and was voted favourite LP by the staff at Rough Trade in 2007.

Since, she has worked with Eddie Bezalel’s Headless Heroes orchestra indie-rock covers project. This year she released To Be Still, which features the amazing White as Diamonds. Not to be missed.

Tickets are £11 and can be booked here.

Don’t forget that Moseley Folk Festival is this weekend! Tickets are getting thinner on the ground, particularly for Saturday, so get’em quick!
