When the music starts, you are transported…sitting on the rusted tailgate of an old truck, bouncing down the uneven dirt roads of beautiful, rugged Kaua’i. As the trade winds hug your sun-drenched shoulders, you hum along to the sweet soulful sounds of Keli’i Kaneali’i. Listening to Keli’i’s voice is like seeing an old friend. It’s comforting and simple. The instantly familiar guitar melodies invite you to come home, come sit and talk story.
Haven’t you ever met someone with no pretention, no agenda? That is the music of Keli’i. A musician’s musician, Keli’i really is doing this for the love of music and you can hear that in every track of this album – the first solo project for him. Keli’i was part of the groundbreaking Hawaiian duo known simply as Hapa and achieved legend status in the early 1990’s with albums that rivaled some of the best of the 20th century. Always content to be the quiet one, many underestimated the depth and talent of this humble musician. A Hawaiian man with a pure heart and devotion to his art, Keli’i is the real deal and brings this simple vision to “I Love Kaua’i,” and invites you all to join him.
