Karrie Pavish Anderson calls Galena, Alaska home. Nestled on the Yukon River, the community is isolated—only accessible by plane, a long boat ride in the warm months, or a snowmobile in the cold. Drawing inspiration from her natural environment, the songstress with a striking voice plays her "Alaskan soul folk" originals plus some mean covers like "The House of the Rising Sun" and Black Sabbath's "Paranoid." On her YouTube channel she says "I think it's important to address those times with no hope and remember what is was like, remember the darkness. I think it makes the light even more rich." She draws wisdom from experience. The seasons in the Yukon-Koyukuk area are as extreme as the journey there—dark, chilling winters rewarded by sunlight long into the summer nights. With an album recorded in 2012 and a new one on the way, Pavish Anderson shares her midnight sun with California this evening for a dinner show.
