Who do you most admire?

My grandmother. Her name is tattooed across my torso.

What do you want the audience to take away from your performance?

A sense of aloha and of being valued and understood.

Where do you call home?

Honolulu, HI.

When is your best time to write?

Inspiration can hit at anytime but strangely often around 5am between asleep and awake.

Why does music matter?

It's hard to even begin. Because music is life. It is fundamental to being able to walk through life with hope and connectivity.

How did a nice girl.....?

I was born in Santa Cruz, Ca into a large family of musicians and singer songwriters. Singing is as natural as brushing my teeth... but a little more fun.
