Happy Holidays! New EP Release on Friday, Dec. 30, 2022 + 2023 Weekly Gig Schedule

Happy Holidays everyone! 

It’s been a while since I gave an update, as I’ve been busy lately with weekly gigs. For New Year’s Eve, I’ll be performing at Mai Tai’s at Ala Moana Shopping Center from 4:00 to 7:00 p.m. Come grab a drink or two and hear some new covers and mashups that I made. 

I’ll also be releasing a new EP on Friday, Dec. 30th called “Manini Kine,” which has a few songs I made recently. Last month, I saw a made-in-Hawai’i feature film called “The Wind & The Reckoning,” and it made me tear up while watching the film. For those who don’t know, my Uncle, Jimmy Brede, was one of the Native Hawaiians that was almost sent to Kalaupapa to recover from Leprosy, but he hid from people that were trying to capture him. The film reminded me of real-life stories my Uncle used to tell me. Those heavy memories inspired one of the tracks on my EP, called “‘Anakala” (translation: “Uncle” in ʻōlelo Hawaiʻi). 

Other tracks on “Manini Kine” are my two previously released singles, “Every Wave is a Party Wave,” and “Shugafiya (feat. Chief Ragga of Hawaii Kine),” as well as a new instrumental called “Ho’oholo ‘Ole ‘Ia” (translation: “No Direction” in ʻōlelo Hawaiʻi). 

Below are the places I’ll be playing in 2023:
