TAIMANE: Her name means “diamond” in Samoan and perfectly reflects the different facets of her nature. Whether delicately finger-picking through Bach or radically ripping through Led Zeppelin, Taimane has the ability to morph genres – from classical to rock to flamenco – and stretch her instrument far beyond the familiar melodies of Hawai`i, where she grew up.
Among Taimane’s ‘ukulele teachers turned admirers are Roy Sakuma and Jake Shimabukuro. When Don Ho caught wind of the talented teen, he invited her to join him as part of his venerable variety show at the Waikiki Beachcomber, further fueling Taimane’s desire to perform for and connect with audiences.
In addition to performing her own distinctive versions of well-known pieces, Taimane weaves in original compositions that are as far ranging as her musical tastes. Her breakout CD, ‘Ukulele Dance features Bach’s “Tocatta,” Lalo Schifrin’s “Mission Impossible Theme,” and pieces she wrote for the planet Neptune and the Moon, as part of her series on the solar system.
With the fierceness of a rocker, the grace of a dancer, and the pageantry of a performance artist, Taimane and her music are wowing ever-larger audiences. She lights up rooms wherever she goes, sparkling like the diamond that she is. Learn More
Jake Shimabukuro's highly anticipated follow up to his last record, 2011's "Peace Love Ukulele", which topped Billboard's World Albums chart. Shimabukuro describes recording the album as a "truly magical experience for me. I'm just excited." All the tracks on the album (a mix of original songs, as well as covers) were played and recorded live. "There were absolutely no overdubs," notes Shimabukuro. "Bringing all these people together, and everyone brings their own experience, their own background, their own interpretation, their own spirit, and love and passion for music."
Produced by Alan Parsons, assistant engineer of the Beatles "Abbey Road" and Pink Floyd's "Dark Side of The Moon." Orchestration for the CD was done by Kip Winger, and it's a real treat. The album will not only take Jake to the next level, but is poised to redefine the Ukulele itself. Jake's version of "Over The Rainbow" is completely "over the top" and his cover version of "Rolling In The Deep" is incredible.
I have always been in a 50th state of mind. This is my area code. (808) Through the years my musical passion and focus has always been about elevating the Contemporary Imagery of Hawaiis multi-cultural music...

English Rose conjures up the image of a fresh, voluptuous flower blossoming out from old rootstock. It’s an apt reflection, as each song unfolds like its own petal of a larger bloom. Most are new originals, but with the familiar depth of an older lyrical and musical foundation. There are traditional favorites spiced with lively twists, and English songs, both light and loving. Each piece, each petal makes the collection bloom bigger and brighter. Learn More

Yes, the ukulele. In the hands of Shimabukuro, the traditional Hawaiian instrument of four strings and two octaves is stretched and molded into a complex and bold new force. On an album like his new Peace Love Ukulele, Jake and his “Uke” effortlessly (it seems) mix jazz, rock, classical, traditional Hawaiian music and folk, creating a sound that’s both technically masterful and emotionally powerful – and utterly unique in the music world.

A ground breaking collaboration between Hawaii's top selling female vocalist Amy Hanaialii and top performers/composers Jeff Peterson, Cyril Pahinui, Dennis Kamakahi, Sonny Lim and Chino Montero in the slack key guitar tradition.
One of the wonderful things about music is its ability to bring people together to share a connection that reaches beyond borders and boundaries. Music can immediately bond souls and create common ground. What happens when kindred spirits who share a deep respect for each other and Hawaiian culture come together to share their music in collaboration? We believe this recording is a great example of just this – creativity, camaraderie, spontaneity, passion, joy, laughter, gratitude, and above all aloha. We hope this recording is as much a joy to listen to, as it was to create.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 .
Internationally acclaimed guitarist Jeff Peterson has established himself as one of the leading slack key guitarists of his generation taking the music from his roots in the ranch lands of upcountry Maui to concert stages around the world and the big screen in the recent Oscar-winning film The Descendants starring George Clooney.
