ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This particular CD includes 12 of my original compositions. It's acoustic and organic. One of my passions is playing different instruments, and I get to do that on this CD. Growing up in Hawaii, my first instrument was the ukulele, which I started playing around with when I was 12. We played everything on the uke, stuff that was on the mainstream radio stations at the time - Creedence, Beatles, Santana, along with Hawaiian music, and even some soft, easy listening music, stuff like, "Put A Little Love In Your Heart", "Blue Darling", "Blue, Blue, My Love Is True", stuff like that. Once I got into my first band at 13 years old, I was hooked. I went from playing light Rock And Roll - Creedence, Eagles, Allman Brothers, Jimmy Buffet, Marshall Tucker; to Outlaw Country all through the 80s; then to traditional Hawaiian all through the 90s - all with my own bands. In the early 2000s, I started doing a solo, doing a combination of all the musics I'd played up until then. Along the way, I started to record in my little home studio - recording seven CDs over a period of about five years. Here more recently, I started appreciating acoustic music. This is my second CD in the past six months, the previous one was about 75% songs with words, and 25% acoustic instrumentals. This one is all acoustic instrumentals - all composed by the kid from Kaimuki (that's me). I learned to play ten instruments along the way, and I've loved every minute - including the times when I was tripping and stumbling all over them, and while they were beating the daylights out of me. Being able to record in my own studio was a whole 'nother learning experience. I spent my share of time in commerical studios all over the country, being a pest by asking silly questions. Being a studio engineer is not just a matter of turning knobs and pushing up faders until you get something that sounds passable - there is actually a method of doing it so that the final product is listenable. These last two CDs are where I'm at now, it's and endless journey that I'm enjoying more than I could have ever imagined.
