Its been almost a full two weeks here in Austin, and things are going so amazing. We have completed 5 songs so far, and a few more to go. I have never been more excited about the music made. These songs are so true to my heart right now, and the style in which they are executed is on point-- so true to my style and do the songs themselves perfect justice.
Here's a little preview of one of my new songs. I DO NOT play piano, but I really want to learn! Here me messing around with my new song "Higher Than The Clouds" the other day.
I went back to Oahu last weekend for my grandfathers funeral. Love my kuku so much and it was so nice to be among my family in our time of grief. I feel like with a loss of a family member, there is a positive that can come out of the sadness. We just focused on his life and celebrated the man he was. I also reassessed my relationships with my 'ohana, making sure that I tell them I love them. Show them I love them. And do what I can do be there for them when they're in need. Make each others lives awesome. Most times, there's no one else in the end but your family. Keep um safe and loved.
While on the North Shore, I did a little photo sesh on my family's hometown beach in Waialua. Here's a few lil previews of some of my fave's. It was REALLY early in the morning, and I had been crying all day the day before because of my kuku's service, hence the puffy eyes! But now that you know that, do the puffy eyes really matter that much? I don't really care.
The album will be releasing digitally at the end of October. But we have an exclusive way for you to be involved with getting even MORE out of this project. More details to come. Till then, enjoy your life, and be nice to people around you! Don't talk shit and always tell the truth, open your heart to love and be true to it. Sometimes your brain is right, but most times your heart is. Do everything FOR LOVE.
