3 Time Finalist at the 43rd Na Hoku Hanohano Awards

This year has been a roller coaster for all of us. The Na Hoku Hanohano Awards are usually held in May, but it has been pushed to October this year due to CV-19. Unfortunately, we had to stream it this year. I was bummed that it wasn’t going to be a full blow celebration. But hey, we have to roll with the times. HARA settled on Honolulu Theatre which was a beautiful backdrop.

Feeling it on TV

I was very humbled that I was asked to perform for the show. Teamed up with Hawaii’s Metal group Storm, ended up in a unique and well fit match up. The song I performed was Hawaiian Nation. I started out with my Koaloha Ukulele and half way through, the band I switched over to Storm’s Ka Mauna a Wakea. During the switch, I turn around and switch out my ukulele to my Ernie Ball Majesty Monarchy Musicman. Finishing out the mashup with my guitar solo really put my good energy into a higher level. I felt good and the performance was probably the most unique out of all. 

Everyone did a good job! Being a different kind of year, I feel like this Award show went really good. I appreciate HARA and all the hard work that went into this last minute hustle to get this show on the roll/TV. Unfortunately, I did not win any awards. I am grateful that I was nominated for Performer of the Year which is super awesome. I also was a finalist for EP of the Year and Alternative Album of the Year. I’m grateful for all nominations. Mahalo all for you support.
