He released his first album “Acoustic Soul” in 1995 and has since sold over 150,000 copies in Hawai‘i alone. In 2008, his album “One of These Days” debuted at No. 1 in Hawai‘i, No. 2 on the Billboard Heatseekers Chart and No. 6 on the Billboard World Chart.
In 2012, Honolulu Magazine named his album one of the “Top 25 Greatest Hawai‘i Albums of the New Century”.
Concerts at The Shops is a free, monthly concert series that is open to the public and features headlining musicians from all the Hawaiian Islands. The event occurs on the third Wednesday of every month.
The Shops at Wailea continues to give back to the community, supporting a different Maui non-profit each month with 60% of the special event parking fees going back to the non-profit. July’s non-profit recipient is Habitat for Humanity Maui.
The Shops’ goal is to enrich the community through exploration and discovery in the arts and music while supporting local businesses and non-profit partners. The four-hour special event parking voucher is available for $5 and can be purchased at the non-profit’s parking table.
