Aloha Friends and family,
I have been keeping quite busy since this past February. It has been tricky to keep up with all media updates. Especially when you are on the road at months end. Since my last post, I have been asked to go on tour with Spawnbreezie. He is my Samoan brother from another mother. He hails from Kansas City, Missouri.
Long story short, Spawnbreezie came to Hawaii for some shows and needed a guitar player to back his band. I jumped in and I guess I did a pretty good job. I then got pulled into his March tour which consisted of 16 venues in 6 states. I also got to open up a couple shows in the later part of the tour which was epic.
After that long month, I came back home and had to hustle for the 2017 Na Hoku Hanohano Awards. My EP didn’t make it to the Finalist ballot, but I was a finalist in a couple other entries; Love Your Mother Compilation and Medusa(rock opera). It was a fun night and I wore a pretty cool outfit. I went solo to the Awards, so I didn’t get to many pictures of my outfit sadly. Many thought highly of it. Congrats to all the winners and fellow musicians of Hawaii!
The following month was festival season. One weekend we were in Guam which we co-headlinded with Magic!, the next in Alaska, then the last two were in Cali. San Diego and San Jose were the bigger festivals we performed at. At the end of that trip, we were informed about the next “short” tour which was a month away.
We were back on the US mainland in a blink of an eye. Luckily the tour started in Hawaii for the first weekend. We then met up in Las Vegas and ended the four week tour in Dallas, Texas. That was the longest and farthest driving I have ever experienced. We did 16 cities on this tour also. A couple of those drives consisted 8-14 hours.
Now I am back home and I am trying to get my band on a roll again. There were so many experiences in this past 6 month. It is very challenging to keep up and keep people informed what has been going on. I camp more on my social media via Instagram and Facebook.
