ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
O-shen's musical career began in the South Pacific nation of PNG.

His first album was released into the PNG market in mid 1997. Although the record was only intended to be a demo, it's uniqueness won
nationwide recognition and resulted in O-shens local fame. He was the first PNG artist to rap in the local language and that made a big impact on
the island music scene. Widely supported by the public, O-shen became somewhat of a musical ambassador for Papua New Guinea. O-shens first
release was only marketed in PNG and other Melanesian island countries.

In 2000 O-shen broke into the Hawaii music scene with his release, self titled, "Iron Youth". O-shen's blend of reggae, hip-hop, and contemporary
sound won the prestige's 2001 "Na Hoku hanohano" award for Hawaii reggae album of the year. The "Iron Youth" album was a hit throughout
many island countries, and helped establish O-shen's music throughout the Pacific.

After some touring in the Pacific, O-shen released the album "Rascal in Paradise" which also gained popularity throughout the islands. "Throw
away the Gun" is a song on the album "Rascal in Paradise" which was used in a major motion picture "Fifty first Dates".

O-shen's song "Free Island People" was a featured song on the GRAMMY nominated "Island Warriors" compilation. This compilation featured
local Hawaiian Reggae artists.

O-shen's album "Kanaka Pacifica" just released in Papua New Guinea and went number one on the local charts and radio stations in PNG.
"Kanaka Pacifica" will be available in Hawaii in late 2004. "Kanaka Pacifica" was recorded with the legendary "Supasound Crew".

O-shen's newest album project titled "Rising Son". "Rising Son" shows off O-shen's versatility with his music and sends a strong message through his conscious lyrics. A pacific and possibly a world tour is in
the planning for 2005 to spread the music and the message.
