the word of joe
"about growing up in the islands...sharing our aloha....creating a musical bridge."


"We’re just a little different. No “jawaiian” (local reggae) and it’s not traditional Hawai`ian. It's a blend of adult contemporary music of Hawai`i today, written and performed hoping to share our aloha. Music for all ages.

Along with sharing our music with kama`aina (locals), we’re hoping to create a musical bridge to shores beyond the Hawai’ian Islands. Not just to transplanted islanders but to folks who live in Racine, Wisconsin, Pocatello, Idaho, Palmetto, Florida, or perhaps Burnby, British Columbia. Tourist and tourist wannabes.

So, the songs are mostly in English and in many contemporary styles such as pop, folk, rock, light jazz and blues. The lyrics are often about growing up and living in the beautiful islands. Stories of life, ohana (family), loves and the environment around us. It's comes from the heart, and a little boy who grew up in this small town of Kailua in the middle of the Pacific Ocean.

Mahalo (thank you) for any kokua (help) you can offer in spreading the Word of Joe."
