About Alaska Sargent

In the artist’s words:
Describe one of your earliest musical memories in detail. For my 10th birthday, my mother got me a copy of LittleBigPlanet 2. I played through the whole thing, and then I discovered the music sequencer. That little thing changed my entire life trajectory.
What are your top 3 all-time favorite albums on Apple Music, and why? Why did you choose these three albums in particular? A Moon Shaped Pool American Boyfriend: A Suburban Love Story For Emma, Forever Ago These three albums have shaped me into who I am today. One taught me to view love from a different angle, one told me to not be ashamed of who and what I am, and one taught me that everything is inevitable, and to appreciate what I hold dear now.
Find a song of yours on Apple Music that you love and tell us what makes it special. Tell us why you chose this song. “Drift (feat. evangeline)” This song almost faded into nothingness. The project was corrupted and this master was all we had left, and Rhys scrapped the EP she was working on. I decided that no matter what, it needed to be out in the world. I believe I made the right call.
What’s one of the most memorable moments in your career so far? I did my first ever show in Texas at a festival in a town so small that it's not even recognized. I camped for three nights in this run-down RV park. The only notable building there was a single Dollar General. It was weird, but I loved every minute.
Is there anything left on your bucket list as an artist or band? I may be growing into an adult, but mark my words, I'm getting that ******* Trix box, and I WILL eat it.
