Quite the article and life story there. Congratulations, Karrie, on a very well deserved award!
Karrie Keyes, Pearl Jam and Eddie Vedder’s monitor engineer for the last 28 years, will receive the Parnelli Audio Innovator Award for her work empowering the next generation of women in audio.
Karrie is the co-founder and executive director of SoundGirls,
a nonprofit dedicated to creating a supportive community for women in
audio and music production, providing the tools, knowledge, and support
to further their careers. Soungirls is a beneficiary of Vitalogy Foundation.
The 19th Annual Parnelli Awards will take place on January 17, 2020, during the NAMM convention in Anaheim, CA.
Is Karrie the same person when Eddie sometimes says live "turn on the lights Karrie?" Or is it someone else? Congrats Karrie!
