Her next album is in production!
Don’t take more than what you really need
That is what my mother said to me
Don’t tear through people’s homes or break their toys
Be thankful for your life and use your voice
Alanna Boudreau released this sweet song about her mother on her 2014 album, Hints and Guesses. The lyrics are full of maternal pieces of wisdom that her mother instilled within her over the years, while the music displays her prowess on the guitar.
Alanna sings the song in the hushed tones that a mother might use to sing a lullaby. The sweet, lilting melody separates each stanza with more advice in her mother’s voice.
If you’re like us here at Aleteia, you’ve been waiting with bated breath for new music from Alanna Boudreau. Well, we have good news for you, she’s taken to the recording studio once more, after another successful Kickstarter campaign.
She last updated the Kickstarter page on May 5, with just 3 words, “IT’s COMING … SOON.”
Of course with the way studio recordings go, it’s anybody’s guess when “SOON” will be, but fear not, we have one of her songs that you may have missed. Alanna posted this charming tune on Facebook about 3 years ago.
Her jazzy vocal charmingly describes a man that she’s crushing on, who may or may not be a scoundrel. The lyrics switch between attraction and doubt, shining a light on the presumptuousness of falling for someone based on looks alone.
Meanwhile, why not send “O Mother” to your own mother, or a mother you know, this weekend?
