Black Belt Eagle Scout; the moniker of Portland-based multi-instrumentalist Katherine Paul released an excellent sophomore album titled At the Party With My Brown Friends in 2019. That seemed to get lost in the shuffle with my real job, kids, life, etc. I spent a lot of time with over the holidays after seeing it pop on a number of year-end lists and she really is something special. She’s heading out on a North American and European tour this year and has released an excellent video for I Said I Wouldn’t Write This Song

Its animated video was edited and directed by Chantal Jung (Inujuk Nunatsiavutimi), and is meant to raise awareness of the Alaskan coastline and its deep connection with Indigenous people and animals. “The video features Northern imagery that shows aspects of Inuit life, including cloudberry picking, animal relatives and Arctic landscapes,” describes Jung. “People often forget that our livelihoods are extremely connected to the environment, including the animals and plants that live among us. This video is meant to bring awareness of the land, the animals and the people who protect the land.”
