Kika Kane: Bio

Aloha! My second release, "The Sunset Sessions," was nominated for "Best Slack-Key Album" at the Hawai'i Music Awards and it was recently featured on NPR's "Echoes" program. There are 3 singles: Track 1 "Here Comes the Rain," Track 4 "Gone Again," and Track 9 "Cirony's Song." All of the songs on this cd were inspired by the beauty of Maui's sunsets. I wrote most of them on the beach after surfing. I achieve the tropical sound of the guitar by using the "slack-key" tunings favored by many guitarists here in the Hawaiian Islands. I hope you enjoy them.
My music can be heard on many of Hawai'i's radio and television stations as a featured artist and as commercial background music. It is also used by many hotels and spas throughout the islands.
