Henry Kapono “Welcome 2 My Paradise” w/ Special Guest Johnny Valentine

Kapono is a performer who has it all – vocalist, guitarist, songwriter, composer, thrilling performer, audience favorite—and multiple honors and awards, including a Grammy nomination. He has taken home 14 Na Hoku Hanohano Awards (Hawaii's “Grammy”) including Male Vocalist of the Year, Song of the Year, Single of the Year, Album of the Year, Rock Album of the Year, and Lifetime Achievement.

His original songs with a rock vibe celebrate his love for his family, express his pride in his Hawaiian culture, and share his joy in his home in the Islands! He has been at the creative forefront of contemporary Hawaiian music throughout his career – from the laid-back island rock of Cecilio & Kapono in the 1970s and 80s, to launching his solo career that produced 17 albums and a world-wide fan base, to his groundbreaking collaborations that fused the power of Hawaiian traditions with driving rock rhythms and a soundtrack for the new century.

A multiple Hawaii Music Award Winner, Johnny has spent most of his life entertaining in the heart of Waikiki. From shows to nightclubs, Johnny has become known as Hawaii’s most versatile singer, and his nephew Bruno Mars debuted at Johnny’s popular show. Notes Mars, "He is one of my inspirations".

    “Kapono is one of the great island songwriters of his generation.” –Honolulu Star-Advertiser

     

    Henry Kapono is a performer who has it all – vocalist, guitarist, songwriter, composer, thrilling performer, audience favorite—and multiple honors and awards, including a Grammy nomination. He has taken home 14 Na Hoku Hanohano Awards (Hawaii's “Grammy”) including Male Vocalist of the Year, Song of the Year, Single of the Year, Album of the Year, Rock Album of the Year, and Lifetime Achievement.

     

    His original songs with a rock vibe celebrate his love for his family, express his pride in his Hawaiian culture, and share his joy in his home in the Islands! He has been at the creative forefront of contemporary Hawaiian music throughout his career – from the laid-back island rock of Cecilio & Kapono in the 1970s and 80s, to launching his solo career that produced 17 albums and a world-wide fan base, to his groundbreaking collaborations that fused the power of Hawaiian traditions with driving rock rhythms and a soundtrack for the new century. The simple honesty of his lyrics and music touch the soul, his wildly talented guitar-playing shares his joy in being alive, and the gift of an evocative, plaintive balladeer's voice haunts you long after he leaves the stage.

     

    “If [my music] makes you dance then do it. If it makes you sing then sing it. If it makes you want to know more about Hawai‘i’s culture then....Welcome To My Paradise!” – Henry Kapono

     

    When he soared to the forefront of Hawaiian music in the 1970s with the duo Cecilio & Kapono, they became the first Hawai‘i group to achieve a national recording contract (Columbia Records). Together they recorded 14 albums and gave contemporary and folk rock—and Hawaiian music—a new perspective. Always musically adventurous, Henry launched a solo career in 1981; he has released 17 albums to date. His newest release WELCOME 2 MY PARADISE! celebrates the island vibe and aloha.

     

    He continues to break new ground with his collaborations – The Wild Hawaiian in 2006, combining driving rock and slam poetry with Hawaiian chant; and Rough Riders in 2015, celebrating Hawai’i’s cowboys (paniolo) –that appeal to audiences around the world.

     

    Known as "Kapono", the Hawaiian word for righteous, Henry is pure Hawaiian, born and raised in Kapahulu, a small town just outside Waikiki. He started singing in a children's church choir at age 5. His athletic abilities earned him a baseball scholarship to the renowned Punahou Academy (President Obama’s alma mater) and a football scholarship to the University of Hawai‘i. Injuries ended his professional football ambitions, but, profoundly, moved him toward his passion for music and allowed him to fully realize his potential as an artist. He had no formal musical training, "My Dad taught me how to play the ‘ukulele.” says Henry. “I saw a friend of mine play a guitar one day and fell in love with the sound of it. He taught me a few chords and I've been hooked ever since.”

     

    Touring with a local rock band in the late 60s, he ended up stranded by the promoter in Vietnam. He and the band spent 2 years performing for the troops in Vietnam and Thailand before returning to Hawai‘i. The experience left him with a lasting commitment to peace, a deep appreciation for life, and compassion and aloha (love) for all people—themes that continue to resonate in his music. www.henrykapono.com
