Another Salmonfest and another wonderful visit with Tim Easton! Tim has been a regular at the annual music festival in Ninilchik, AK for 7 years and he always swings by the station to share more music. We chatted with Tim about the road, fishing, finding what it is you like to do and how it all fills the latest album American Fork. Check out the conversation and live songs with Tim Easton and a Live In-Studio session on KNBA.

Alaskan's are stereotyped to always be outdoors Fishing, Skiing, Climbing... what's wrong with that! Add local music to that list of Alaskan activities' and you're officially Alaska cool and Alaska geeky all at the same time.

The young artist from Girdwood shines on the new release, her second full album, with well written and confidently delivered songs that were recorded in Portland, OR.  Nothing gets in the way of Ava's stories as the album was recorded with a minimalist approach to capture the same delicate but confident presentation you get when seeing and hearing her live.
