Natalie Ai Kamauu’s New Single!

Shower Tree Cover_FINALNatalie Ai Kamauu’s new album is Shower Tree, now available on iTunes! Her full album, “La La La La” is coming soon!

Shower Tree is a beautiful song that celebrates Natalie’s son’s favorite tree. Here is the story as she tells it:

“In 2010, after releasing 2 CD’s, my son Chaz asked, ‘Mom, when are you going to write me a song?’ I asked him what his favorite flower was and without hesitation he said, ‘The Shower Tree.’ For the life of me, I could not write a song based on the shower tree. Instead, I composed ‘Ku`u Pua Pakalana’, pakalana being my favorite flower.

I’ve told this story numerous times, and it peaked the interest of fellow musician Kihei Nahale`a. He wrote this for me, coming to my rescue. He honors our family and where we live…in beautiful Ewa, where the shower trees bloom profusely during spring time.”

Even foreign countries won’t pay what they collect as we don’t pay their artists for use of their music. The Local Radio Freedom Act aims to continue this cycle and deny fair pay for radio play!
