"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. "
Some write poems, I write songs. When words are not enough - music is what feelings sounds like. A mix of ballads, bluesy, and feel good island tunes.

The Sacred Sounds of the Native American flute will bring you to another realm, and return you to the wind of your breath.
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 good willed 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.
"These words, spoken and read, resonate with resolve to rescue the light from within. There … now we're on to something. A beat, a tempo, a rhythm … building, blossoming, marshaling the light … a charged thrust through the darkness. I know the way. My music is an expression of that connection through hip-hop. It's an offensive against the darkness that we too often succumb to in our earthly lives. And most of all, it will put you in strong positive motion, to find your light and shed your burden."
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.

Art by Caleigh Bird
Caleigh Bird is a figurative artist living in Hawai'i whose blend of contemporary and classical realism serves to depict her modern subjects in true-to-life bold character, while still being rendered as carefully as the traditionally trained masters she has spent her life studying in the US and abroad. Behind Caleigh's work is her desire to help foster an inclusive atmosphere in the fine art world by portraying a culturally rich group of subjects. She believes that the modern art scene in general, from its exhibiting artists to its muses, should be ever more representational of all the unique citizens of this earth, so she uses her work to lovingly highlight the beauty and character in everyday people from all over the world.
