Twice-Grammy® nominated international Hawaiian recording star, Raiatea Helm adds to her list of award-winning music with the release of her long-awaited solo CD Sea of Love. As a courageous “new traditionalist” of Hawaiian music, Raiatea Helm’s collection of songs in Sea of Love takes the musical stylings of the late 1950’s and early 1960’s and makes them fresh through vibrant, innovative arrangements. This collection of songs draws upon the signature sounds of a bygone era in Waikiki and captures the sizzle of brushes on a snare drum and ‘sock’ cymbal, the use of maracas, congas and bongos, and the uplifting rhythms of the vibraphones, the bass, the steel guitar, and the piano. When Raiatea Helm’s sparkling vocals are placed within the energy of this effervescent instrumentation, she breathes new life to songs from a by-gone era that were once performed throughout Waikiki and known simply as “Hawaiian Club” music.Learn More

In a culture that honors the legacies of the past, this Hawaiian trio of talented musicians pays homage to their roots while creating a unique and progressive sound that leaves their mark in contemporary Hawaiian music.
This worldview is the essence of Hiikua’s music, which is either composed or performed by Kalehua Krug, Kamuela Kimokeo and Blake Leoki-Haili. The group’s name derives from the Hawaiian word that literally means “to carry on one’s back.” Hi`ikua accepts this responsibility and intends with each song to achieve that goal: to speak of their history in words and music; to enjoy each moment of that expression, and in sharing this with you, to hope that their message will find its way into the future.
The music on Aia I Hi`ialo reflects the fond memories of Hi`ikua’s parents and grandparents, the things that they taught, and the messages that they shared. These memories are often the source of inspiration for mele that are written to help remember important life lessons. Learn More
Aptly titled, Donavon Frankenreiter’s “Revisited” is not just a re-recording of his 2004 self-titled album; it’s a complete reinterpretation... with a Hawaiian twist.
Kauai Resident and professional surfer, Donavon Frankenreiter, lives an incredible life for which he is extremely grateful. His first recording was made with the aid of his long time friend Jack Johnson and spawned the AAA radio hit “Free”. Teaming up with longtime band mate Matt Grundy (Bass/BGVs), and local musicians Kirk Smart (Guitars), and David Leach (Percussion), Donavon set out to re-record his debut album (originally released on Brushfire Records) using traditional Hawaiian instruments including the ukulele, lap steel guitar, and a Mauna Loa slack key tuned guitar. The result is a fresh new take on the original that allows Donavon’s envied lifestyle to ooze sweetly through the speakers, giving a completely new sound to favorites like “It Don’t Matter” and “Free”.
Catch old friends and collaborators Jack Johnson and Donavon both performing at the Mile High Music Festival Aug 2010. Check Donavon Frankenreiter’s website for extensive list of tour dates .
