Aloha! I am available to perform for weddings, receptions, house concerts, private parties, conventions and festivals here on Kauai, as well as on the other Hawaiian islands.

I have been singing professionally since 1985 and I love to share this sacred, healing gift of music. My original songs were written with the intention of creating loving, healing vibrations in heartful recognition of the Divinity in all of Creation.  I also enjoy playing a wide variety of cover songs (please see my song list below). 

On a personal note, I have been very happily married for twenty- five years, and I am always delighted to play for, and honor the sacred union celebration of others.

One of my specialties is composing customized songs for your wedding or other special occasion. Please write to me here to discuss this option, or if you have any other questions.

I look forward to hearing from you!
