about

Releasing March 15, 2022.

** This is a VINYL ONLY release. No digital **

This record forever changed Hawaii.

Fronted by songwriters Mackey Feary and Malani Bilyeu, with guitarist DJ Pratt (who recently passed away... RIP) and keyboardist Kirk Thompson (of Lemuria legend), their debut shaped the sound of a contemporary Hawaii in the 1970s, a sound that is still embedded in our islands.

To this day, the music of Kalapana defies categorization — is it jazz? rock? pop? R&B? — the band fills a space uniquely its own. Kalapana has always been difficult to define, especially their first album which remains the pinnacle of modern music from Hawaii. The band was so in tune with its own style and extremely motivated to live up to the songwriting and recording standards of the day (think The Beatles, Stevie Wonder, CSNY, Eric Clapton, Hall & Oates, James Taylor), that the resulting LP was an instant success that left a massive impact on local artists. The eleven songs represents a style uniquely Kalapana's own, and we're extremely honored to reissue this masterpiece back onto vinyl.

Copies of this landmark record have dried up over the years. Once a staple at local record shops and thrift stores, it rarely pops up anymore (and when it does, it's gone in minutes).

Our greatest hope is this official vinyl reissue will continue to perpetuate Kalapana's musical legacy for Hawaii and the world to enjoy.
