    Tavana is a multi-instrumentalist from Honolulu, HI who uses electronic drum triggers to lay down a variety of grooves with his feet while simultaneously playing guitar, banjo, lap steel, or ukulele and singing soulful, island-inspired rock and blues. His album, "Aloha Spirit" was a Nā Hōkū Hanohano Award Nominee for Best Contemporary Album of the Year in 2018, and features Leon Mobley (Ben Harper and the Innocent Criminals), Chris Chorney (Kanye West and Jay-Z), and Mike Lewis (Sammy Davis, The Temptations, Billy Joel), as well as other world class musicians - Mark Lindberg, Ken Likens, and Ane Pessin. The album displays Tavana’s versatility with crossover pop songs "SMH," "Aloha Spirit" and "Island Days," while still showcasing some of his traditional hard-driving rock style on "Walk My Way" and "Glass Castle."

    Tavana has been the supporting act for Alabama Shakes, Shakey Graves, Xavier Rudd, Jenny Lewis, Julian Marley, and Kaleo to name just a few, and In 2009, Eddie Vedder invited Tavana to sing "Hawaii 78," a Hawaii anthem of sorts, with him at the Hawaii Theatre. “He’s more the exception than the rule, he is a great human and I’m glad to know him,” said Vedder while introducing Tavana to the audience. From a recording of their performance together, Vedder produced a limited vinyl record that was sent out to 10,000 Pearl Jam fans.

  • Kala'e Parish

    Kala’e has been a professional musician and entertainer in Hawai’i since 2013 performing throughout the islands and abroad. In 2016, he began his solo journey as an artist performing at steady spots in Honolulu and recording his very first EP. This new EP titled Where I Reside hit the airwaves in December 2020. With all original songs written and composed by Kala’e, this eclectic, 6-track EP is a fresh twist of music from pop country infused with lyrics about his island home to smooth latin rock to love ballads. In 2020, Kala’e was a featured songwriter on Kuha’o Maunakea, an 18-track compilation album with some of Hawai’is top performers, and was recognized at the 2020 Na Hoku Hanohano Awards for his composition of “We Are A Voice” featured on that album. In 2021, "Where I Reside" by Kala’e won a Na Hoku Hanohano Award for Extended Play (EP) of the year. As a Hawai’i Island artist residing in beautiful Waimea, he continues to perform regularly throughout all the islands and is actively in the recording studio with new original music to be released soon.
