Brandi Carlile Gets Real About Moms in "The Mother" Video

A beautiful look at the everyday day to day for Moms everywhere

May 8, 2019

Over a year later, and Brandi Carlile still has more to give from her critically acclaimed album By the Way, I Forgive You.

The sixth studio album from the singer has collected mountains of praise and a GRAMMY nomination for Album Of The Year since it was released in February of 2018, thanks to some powerful songwriting about addiction, parenthood, relationships, and gender. Today it helps shine one more bright light, with the video for "The Mother."

Carlile's ode to her young daughter Evangeline, received a video on Wednesday, created and produced by an all-female crew and showing the day to day joys and pressures of being a Mom. It's motherhood through many lenses, in a slice of reality to celebrate the world's most important job.

Rather than dramatize or fetishize what it means to be a Mom, Carlile lets the extraordinary acts that come along everyday speak volumes about love, commitment, and time. An appropriate reminder before Mother's Day on Sunday May 12th.
