That’s The Green, four boys hailing from Hawaii who burst out 2010 with their self-titled debut album. Amazingly for a new band, the disc rocketed onto Billboard’s 2010 Year-End Top 10 Reggae Chart, was honored as iTunes’ Reggae Album of the Year, won Best Reggae Album at Hawaii’s 2011 Na Hoku Hanohano Awards, and has sold over 20,000 copies.
The four members of The Green take pride in the pop-burnished roots reggae style they’ve cooked up—edgy enough to make tastemakers sit up and take notice, yet accessible to all ages “from little tiny kids, to people who just want to rock, to grandmas and grandpas who just love music,” says guitarist-singer Zion Thompson. Four distinct voices, four sharp songwriting talents, masterful musicianship, and monster grooves add up to one exceptional band with an unforgettable sound and a powerful story. Learn More

“Manawa” means “time.” Mailani has taken the “time” to develop her craft. First with the very successful and award-winning duo Keahiwai, next with the all girl powered Mighty J and at last taking center stage with her first solo album, Mailani. Mailani won her “Female Vocalist of the Year” and the respect of fans and the music community as a top notch solo artist and composer.

Neither do I, but whatever Agsalda may have contributed to a later version of the group, he is unquestionably ready for prime time as a solo act here. Think Kenny Rankin, think Michael Franks; those are the musical footsteps he's following.
The opening song introduces Kaleo as an accomplished singer-songwriter. All the pieces are originals, and any of them would be a natural fit on any "easy listening" radio station. Kaleo's voice is the key element here, but there's a song or two that also shows his talent as a guitarist as well. Todd Adamski (electric guitar/bass), Wendell Ching (drums) and Rocky Holmes (sax/flute) provide instrumental support and forge the musical links to Rankin, Franks and even, at times, Kalapana.
Kaleo's music stands on its own merit as a singer-songwriter's perspectives on life and love. His images certainly mirror the feelings of romantics everywhere. And although much of his musical bag is soft and romantic, several songs describe the painful and frustrating sides of love in convincing style.
The album art adds a touch of mystery. There's a map of Oahu with 10 numbered locations. Do the song numbers tie in to those places? It seems that that's for him to know and for us to find out.

"For Love, sounds like it should be the aural equivalent of a particularly slushy rom-com. Thankfully the Maui-born songstress has avoided the temptation to drench her lovelorn lyrics with sickly sweet melodies and schmaltzy strings, and instead has impressively managed to produce a genuinely warm and effortlessly summery record which might even charm those who curse the Feb 14 celebrations...A quietly seductive affair, For Love suggests that when it comes to the ‘female Jack Johnson' label, Colbie Caillat may now have some competition." -Jon O'Brian, Rovi

"Mohalu – to be at ease, comfortable, at liberty. As our lives contain many layers, the same is for Mohalu. Mohalu is also the 12th night of the lunar cycle, an eve where planting flowers would be ideal, as these blooms would grow as full and as perfect as the moon on this night. The mana’o (idea or thought) behind Mohalu represent what this sophomore project is for me.
This song selection unfolds to reveal different petals, if you will, of my life. My own mele (songs) are attempts to communicate my inner most feelings in hopes that there are others who can identify with my struggles and my joys."
Pihana...the skillful gathering of life's experiences, the accumulation of desires and dreams, and the realization of our on-going commitment to honor our 'aina, kupuna and 'ohana.
It has been my unique privilege to observe and experience the remarkable ancestral gifts bestowed upon this young, strong, and vibrant Hawaiian woman- a Kumu Hula who skillfully weaves ancient tradition into the modern fabric of her daily life. Napua strives for pihana in everything that she does and in doing so, inspires everyone around her to do the same.
Such is the power and the promise of pihana.
