"Kimo Nevius writes and plays a unique brand of folk music steeped in Hawaiian history and culture. Many of his songs deal with Maui in the nineteenth century—a time of whaling ships, sugar plantation, and cowboys, and his songs narrate stories of everyone from commoners to kings. When he’s not writing about Maui, his work still has a tendency to focus on the past—from the warm glow of nostalgia to remembering the feeling of first love."
