About Kalani Kealoha

Mixed by Scientist.  Assistant engineers Brian Wallace and Danny Moon.

Native Hawaiian singer Kalani Kealoha began singing Hawaiian music as a child. His soulful voice gained the attention of the many traditional Hawaiian musicians and singers in his Ohana (family). His influences range from traditional Hawaiian, to R&B, and reggae. Kalani’s vocal abilities helped him win a Hawaiian Hoku award in 1995, and have made him the goto harmony guy for many local “Jawaiian” artists, where his brief featured solo performances are always a hit with the crowd.

Though it could be said that he is everyone’s “side man” or a “harmony singer”, his stage presence and ability during solo features is what lead to Kalani being asked to be a feature artist on the Rootstime Production label; iDrop Riddim (aka Rootstime Riddim): Various Reggae Artists album.

Kalani Kealoha’s tune, “Irie Eyes”, produced by Grammy nominated reggae guitarist Jason “Jahson” Murphey for Rootstime Production, features his smooth “lover’s rock” style vocals and the sweet Hawaiian Lap-Steel guitar of legendary Hawaiian musician, Greg Sardina. This unique combination of lap-steel guitar over the roots reggae iDrop Riddim (aka Rootstime Riddim), highlights Kalani Kealoha’s “Hawaiian style” vocals and brings a fresh new style to the world of reggae music.

Produced by Jason “Jahson” Murphey for Rootstime Production llc (2013).
