Thom fuses his passion for song with a love of life. Based on the lush island of Kaua‘i, Thom's expressive lyric and intimate vocals have a feel-good ambiance that draw from his island lifestyle, world travels, and goodwilled sensibility. With native LA roots, he left behind a thriving urban livelihood to chase his true calling--music. His debut album, Release, reflects a poetically universal collection of songs that stretch beyond his island days.
Born and raised in the mountains of Japan to a Japanese father and American mother, Kiana and her two older siblings were home-schooled at the foot of Mt. Fuji, until she moved to her mother's homeland of Hawaii in 1999.
"My hope is that as an Artist, I am able to continue growing and challenging myself towards expressing my deepest truths in a way that more fully embodies my spirit, character, and life experiences. "
Music from all around the world is as inter-related as people and cultures of this world are. We specialize in improvisational music that takes form as we play it live. Our music is based on the theory of free form jazz, which is freedom of musical expression. Within this expression, we showcase cultural music from our live experiences and our ancestry. Fusing Indian, Malaysian, Middle Eastern and Latin music with Western styles of Jazz, Blues and Funk is what we do best.
Haole Kid & Local Boy Blues Project:
With raw, energetic vocals and aggressive slide guitar, Haole Kid & Local Boy do not color inside the lines, but they'll make sure you have a good time. Playing both original tunes as well as covers, the Haole Kid (Kelly Howerton) and Local Boy (Marino Regalado) are bringing a fiery blend of rock 'n roll and blues to Honolulu, Hawaii.
Funky, Rocking guitar riffs, with Soulful vocals, and a beat that will get your feet Moving!
DJ set by Jerome James to close out the night!

Her vision: "Energy, vibrancy, and the movement of life catches my eye. I explore meditation, movement, and energy of nature. I practice receiving and expressing this energy through painting. With the sway of my hands and body, I imitate the lines of the plants or movement of the water. I have studied movement and painting all of my life. Practices of yoga, meditation, and Continuum Movement have helped to bring a peaceful flow to painting. These practices help me to sense the micro-movements in the body and be more present with my surroundings, to feel life's breath and energy, Ha."
