Honored to be a Finalist on the Na Hoku Hanohano Awards 2021 Final Ballot, mahalo to the Board and members of HARA, Hawaii Academy Recording Arts (


*So excited for this long awaited anticipation of my project. My promise is that you get to enjoy this Ku’u ‘Aina Aloha album. It’s been such a bliss to work with great musicians whom I thank wholeheartedly.
Mr. Nathan Aweau, Steven Espaniola, Tarvin Makia, Al Villaren, Tadd Aiona, Jim Cramer, Joe Napeahi and Dave Tucciarone worked so diligently with me . It was such an honor to record at home on O’ahu. A goal I have had for a long time in my career since I am from the North Shore. Recorded with Seventh Wave Recording Studio in Salt Lake.
*Produced by Dave Tucciarone, co-produced by Faith Ako. Recorded, mixed and mastered by the Grammys/Na Hoku Hanohano Award’s Winning Producer.
An endeavor of four years in the making. Truly a gratifying experience from my heart and soul. Got nothing but love for our hawaiian music.
Mahalo nui loa Dave Tucciarone, #youROCK!

Expatriate islander Faith Ako, excels at doing Hawaiian standards in traditional nahenahe style.
