  Raised on Maui, Willie Kahaiali`i (a.k.a., Willie K.) has been playing music and entertaining audiences since the age of 10. His father Manu Kahaiali`i, one of Hawaii's most respected musicians, recruited Willie and his brothers to perform in his band. From the very beginning, Willie was influenced by and exposed to a myriad of musical genres; from the Hawaiian, jazz, and early R&B he heard at his father's side, to the sounds emanating from the radio and TV from musical giants such as B.B. King, Santana, Jimi Hendrix, and Willie Nelson. It is no wonder that Willie has evolved into such an eclectic and charismatic singer/songwriter/entertainer. By his high school graduation, Willie was playing in as many as eight bands -- from country and western, salsa, rhythm and blues, rock, and of course Hawaiian. A few years later he moved to San Francisco determined to make it in the music scene there.

After several years in California, Willie gained some notoriety opening for groups such as Cecilio and Kapono, but after one too many earthquakes, decided to return home. Back on Maui, with renewed determination, Willie focused on recording an album of his own.
