It’s been almost a year since I sat down with Krimson so I thought it might be cool to catch up with her. I knew she had some interesting stuff going, and figured DesertRat readers might be interested as well.Thanks to Krimson for taking the time out to chat!
1) You’ve been busy since last time we chatted. How have you been?
I have been very well, 2016 was a very busy yet successful year for me and I’m off to a great start to 2017. I had a very successful hunting season, filmed my first music video and I am now currently in the works of getting my own outdoor show. I can’t wait to share so many new things with you all!
2) You’re releasing a new single and video? Tell us about it
I just released my newest single and music video “Elements”. Truly inspired by the beauty of the outdoors, this piece was exclusively filmed on my hometown island of Kodiak, Alaska. I was very fortunate to grow up so involved with the great outdoors and that is truly what inspired this piece of art. Watch the video or give the lyrics a read at www.krimsonlive.com.
3) What’s involved in making a video like that?
Like anything else, it took a lot of hard work and dedication. It was a long week of running from one scene to the next in 20-degree weather to capture all the beauty on Kodiak. I was flown to a mountain top as the helicopter circled, recording my performance. I was then rushed to the next scene, where again the helicopter circled me as I was in the rigging of one of our family commercial fishing boats. We then filmed in all the lush forests and rocky beaches of Kodiak. The whole experience was truly an adventure, one that I will never forget. However, it took far more work than what meets the eye.
4) How can people hear more of your music? How can they support you?
All my music, including my newest release “Elements” can be found on my website at www.krimsonlive.com where you can also support my career by downloading my music, ordering a CD or even donating. Follow me on Facebook or Instagram to stay updated on all my latest news, and share the word with all your friends and family. I intend to do great things for society and the hunting community;my fans however, will ultimately help make that change.
5) Didn’t you just shoot more than one record Black tail? Tell us more…
Yes, this past December I shot three record Sitka Blacktail Deer in one day, with a bow! All which were recorded on film. Rain and snow had been relentless for days and we were breaking into the first few days of December, so the temperatures were dropping quickly. After the storm, we happened to get a beautiful cold and clear day which enabled the deer to find warmth and food that was melting from the snow. Needless to say, it was a phenomenal day full of great experiences. Read more of my hunting stories at http://krimsonlive.com/hunting/
6) What hunts do you have lined up this year?
I plan to hunt Moose this September, which is one of my favorite hunts. I also plan on doing a Mountain Goat hunt with a bow, which is something I have wanted to do for years. I was also recently drawn for a Kodiak Brown Bear, in the best area in the world for Spring of 2018. Less than 1% are fortunate enough to be drawn for this hunt and it just so happens to be when I will be filming for my outdoor show! God has something great in store for me and I can’t wait to share it all with you.
7) Any hunting videos in the works?
Yes, I have been in the process of getting my own outdoor show. It will be the first Female Hosted TV Show filmed in Alaska with episodes full of hunting, fishing and living the ultimate organic lifestyle; everything from picking berries to cooking organically & more, it’s a show that will appeal to all ages, genders and interests!
Millions of people have never and will never get to experience Alaska like I have. I want to bring these experiences to people all over the world, because I have a lot to share with you on Kodiak Island.
8) Are you looking for companies to collaborate with?
Yes, I have already begun gaining relationships with excellent brands and I hope to collaborate with many more. It’s very important to me to represent the best gear on my show, because let’s face it – if a product can remain durable on the treacherous weather patterns of Kodiak, there’s nothing it can’t handle!
Thanks again to Krimson for taking time to talk to Outdoor Hub! We can’t wait to see her grow and succeed in the outdoor industry. Meanwhile, check out her new video:
