The early beginnings of Maoli (meaning “Native” in Hawaiian) started in Maui with Glenn Awong, a 14-year-old with a passion for music, and Kana Akiu-Corpuz. In their sophomore year, the aspiring vocalist and bassist began writing original music at the encouragement of their high school teacher. It was also during this time that Glenn started recording demos of his songs. By the time he reached his senior year, Glenn was ready to share his music with a greater audience.?
“The Boys from Maui,” Maoli are back and this time with their new CD release entitled, “Arise”. Nominees of the Hawaiian Music Awards and the Na Hoku Hanohano Music Awards, Maoli have returned fresher than ever and their newest radio hit, “Blew It” is the precursor release from this 3rd album, which is undeniably destined for national appeal and worldwide attention.
“I can’t sit back and play a single type or style of music. Life isn’t that simple to me and for everyone else that breathes air. Sometimes I just wanna skank and enjoy the sunshine and other days it’s the opposite. If my music was all the same I would be lying to you, my listener, about my journey. The last thing I want to create is uninspired music.” -Jordan T.?
Music is life - life is music. Description Jordan describes his life as a musician as “a journey guided by the wind… I live, breathe, sing, and search for passion, inspiration and adventure like a gypsy. I try not to plan too much – embracing the moments I have for what they are and when they come.” His music is characteristic of such a statement in its eclectic nature and continually evolving style. You won’t find Jordan singing, playing, or writing only a single genre. His versatility reflects his intent to express all angles of emotions, experiences and life happenstance. In his live performances, you can feel this truth as he puts his heart and soul into the mic and drawing you into the stories. From stories of introspection and heartbreak, to stories of dancing and sunny days, you’re guaranteed to walk away with truth about his journey in life. You can really get to know him through his music if you’re willing to take the time to pay attention. One A-Chord ?
