ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Who knew four years ago that Levi Kealaluhi would be an aspiring musician. In 1997 he was catching the winning touchdown for Brigham Young University in the Cotton Bowl. Football was in his sights then, but the strong desire for music made him give it all up.

Levi was born and raised in Makawao, Maui. There, his mother pushed a life of entertainment. Entering him in talent competitions, singing competitions: she was a real advocate of KO the entertainer.

Life would have continued in Makawao had his father not pushed his football career. Levi moved with his family to California in 1989 to finish his senior year of high school playing football at Rancho Buena Vista in San Diego.

Back and forth with different ideas of how life was going to play out, he returned to school at Grossmont Junior College in 1993. There he returned to his roots, football. That soon proved to be one of his greatest talents. He received a full scholarship to play for the Brigham Young University Cougars under the tutelage of the great LaVell Edwards.

After college he followed what he thought was his dream into the National Football League, playing for the Arizona Cardinals and the Indianapolis Colts. Yet something didn't seem right. There was something else calling to him...music.

He had sung all his life with his family. Karaoke was a family favorite. Levi was the guy on the plane with the Uke and all the songs. His real dream soon became a reality singing with reggae bands like INI, one50one and Soul Shakedown.

Soon, Levi was fortunate enough to meet Quino of Big Mountain, who recently released his hit solo album Mahalo. Quino, his mentor, guided him in the right direction. Producing and writing with Levi they put together an album with a unique sound and original vibe. He had found his dream.

Levi is releasing his first album in February 2002, This Is Who I Am. These songs are stories of his life...the journey of a proud paniolo boy.

Surprised
I was very surprised on quality of tracks. Songs brought a smile to my wife and I. We're very big BIG MOUNTAIN fans and there were similarities to the music.We've never listen to hawaiian/reggae before but it was great. Favorite song- I Still Believe... great job KO.

awsome
I really enjoy Ko cd. I love how each song is apart of his life.
One about his daughter, another about his wife also one about his brother.
My favorit is "Island born" about the Kealaluhi ohana.

You can smell the ocean air
I was pleasantly surprised. The entire CD quite enjoyable. The message he conveys really gives you a feel for the pride of the people of Hawaii and the friend ships he has encountered. Very peaceful, good vibes.
