2017 marks the release of Karrie Pavish Anderson's third recording, "Corner of 17th & Faith," which was recorded at The Stickhouse in Sacramento, California. This EP is her first release which is comprised solely of songs of faith, including Karrie's first co-write with her brother David Pavish, "I Choose;" a gospel choir version of her original "Climbing;" and an ethereal cover of U2's "40."

"I Choose" and "40" are based upon the Psalms – those very human Psalms of feeling abandoned or lonely or hurt or hopeless. The beauty Karrie finds in King David’s psalms is that they are red-blooded, full-bodied, honest prayers and cries to his God, without fear of being seen as less of a person. Feeling comfortable enough with God to unabashedly say things that others might interpret as sacrilegious.

Psalm 13 and 40 speak to being in the darkest times of life, when it felt like there was no end to the deep pain of David’s struggle. Yet David, after questioning God, lays himself bare before the Creator in reckless abandon, saying, “Yet, I trust you.”

Powerful. Dauntless. Gritty. Maybe even foolhardy.

The hope infused into these Psalms is profound, and Karrie is a firm believer in hope:

"The last few years have been ones of intense challenges where I felt alone and lost due to experiencing the passing of many loved ones. And it seemed when I’d talk to God, silence was the only response. Everything had shifted. I felt faithless.

I turned the corner on my grief as I began to pen “Climbing.” Rays of light through stained glass windows in an old Sacramento church dimly touched the piano where I honed the core of that song. It became a personal anthem, declaring that my valleys don’t have to feel permanent. Even if they may be ongoing."

East 17th Avenue is where the Pavish family’s first house stood, and still stands today. From it, Karrie walked to Kindergarten. In it, the Pavish siblings found myriads of creative play. Around it was the little burgundy fence Dad & Grandpa built. Behind it was the timeless backyard where we acted out Wonder Woman and Soup Chefs and Store Keepers and Detective, built snow people, and learned to ride a bike.

"We dreamed. We didn’t know what we wanted when we grew up. We just felt safe and free in the moment. Though it was a good beginning for me, East 17th is part of my past. It’s a part of me; it’s not where I am now. Reminiscing is great, yet living in the past tends to halt us in our steps and keep us from dreaming or reaching out. In the song “Climbing,” East 17th simply represents the past. And faith, the future and the now. And so, I decided to name this record Corner of 17th and Faith.”

A little about Karrie Pavish Anderson:

Karrie Pavish Anderson cold brews her Alaskan soul songs from the challenges of living in a Hoth-like locale with no roads leading out, and no Starbucks within 300 air miles. Galena, Alaska is an unlikely place for an award-winning artist with an active touring career, yet Karrie Pavish Anderson thrives in this Yukon hamlet & spin its stories into concerts in North America & Europe.

“Karrie has the ability of persuading her audience with a style that reaches all: Logically. Ethically, and Emotionally. All ages love her music. I have had the opportunity of sharing the stage with her great talent. Karrie is good. That is the bottom line.”
- Dennis Agajanian, eight time Inspirational Country Music Musician of the Year

“Drawing inspiration from her natural environment, the songstress with a striking voice plays her Alaskan soul folk originals plus mean covers like "The House of the Rising Sun" and Black Sabbath's "Paranoid."”
— Monterey County Weekly

"Eine große Stimme aus Alaska"
-Monika Fricke, Osterholzer-Kreisblatt, Deutschland

Other releases include a full-length album "Once Blind," produced in Los Angeles by Vardan Ovsepian, and "Twice as Nice," which features four original songs done two ways. Karrie says she got the inspiration for the "Twice as Nice" concept from watching a few too many BBC cooking shows: "Today I have prepared for you salmon, two ways."
