Let’s talk more about her family and herself.

Who Is Her Husband?

First, let’s talk about her husband Atz Kilcher. Born Attila Kuno Kilcher in September 1947, he is one of the stars of the Discovery show Alaska: The Last Frontier. The TV show focuses on his homestead established 80 years ago outside of Homer, Alaska.

Born in 1974, he is 4th of 8 siblings and the oldest son in the family. His brother Otto Kilcher co-stars on the Discovery Channel TV show.

When he was little, he was homeschooled by his mother Ruth until his teenage years. The local elementary school was beyond walking distance for the children, so his mother took the responsibility to provide that.

In high school, he was an athlete. In 1967, Atz was drafted for the Vietnam War and spent two years in the Army. Once he returned home, he got married to Lenedra Carroll. They have three children together, Shane, Atz Lee, and Jewel.

In 2018, he published his story-filled memoir, titled Son of a Midnight Land: A Memoir in Stories. It documents his life growing up on his family’s homestead, his role in Vietnam, and his life as a social worker.

The Kilcher Homestead was established when Atz’s father Yule Kilcher moved to Alaska in 1940 and was given 160 acres of federal land to homestead. His mother and family helped with the homestead while Yule traveled for months.

The family offers tours of the homestead. One of the original cabins has been turned into a museum.

Atz and his brother Otto are also part of the Discovery Channel TV Series, Alaska: The Last Frontier. Other family members of the Kilcher clan appear during it.

Who Is Her Daughter?

Lenedra is also the mother of Jewel Kilcher, the American singer, songwriter, and actress. Jewel has received four Grammy Award nominations and has sold more than 30 million albums worldwide.

Raised near Homer, Alaska, she grew up singing and yodeling as a duo with her father. When she was 15, she received a partial scholarship at the Interlochen Arts Academy in Michigan, where she studied operatic voice. Following her graduation, Jewel began writing and performing at clubs in San Diego, California.

Because of her popularity, she signed a recording contract with Atlantic Records. Under that label, she released her debut album, Pieces of You in 1995. It became one of the best-selling debut albums of all time, going 12 times platinum.

In 1998, she released her second album, Spirit, followed by That Way, and 0304 in 2003. Jewel has also had endeavors in writing and acting. In 1998, the same year she released her second album, she released a collection of poetry.

Speaking of her music career, she is a soprano. Her vocal versatility is amazing, as she is able to summon many voices, deep and powerful, girlish and sweet, piercing and agile.

In the late 1990s, when she appeared on the scene, Jewel was a refreshment of the gunge, climbing the charts with sweet, and simple folk tunes.

She grew up in Mormon, as her family moved around in Alaska. Their journey began from a small village to Wrangler Island and then to finally staying in Homer.

At the time the family moved to Homer, she was a teenager and went to high school there. There is not much information about her childhood.

We can assume she did a lot of manual labor and hard work during it. She did not go to college following her high school graduation.

Instead, she chose to work as a visual artist in Alaska. She has spent many years in the music industry, working as the business manager of her daughter.

But she is also a musician, releasing her solo album Words in 2007. Two years later, she released another album, Daybreak Song.
