AK Rebel selected for the 2015 KNBA Alaska Native Artist/Band Spotlight

AK Rebel; Samuel Johns

    

KNBA began the Alaska Native Artist Spotlight to reach out to musicians, bands and artists in the effort to bring more Native voices to the airwaves.  We wanted to shine a brighter light by choosing a specific artist to showcase. So we asked for music… and the response was fantastic!

Annually we’ll be selecting an artist or band, from submitted entries, to be spotlighted on 90.3 FM. We'll record an artist/band profile; we'll share the artists/bands music as part of the On-Air playlist and we'll invite the artist/band for a Live In-Studio session on the radio.

A federal appeals court had ruled the environmental review was flawed when it was prepared before 2.7 billion dollars in Chukchi lease sales in 2008.
