Kolohe Kai has consistently been one of the most popular artists in Pacific Island Reggae music for over a decade. The project of O‘ahu born and raised singer/songwriter Roman De Peralta, Kolohe Kai has produced ten island reggae hits since signing a record deal at age 17. His sound infuses the localism of ‘ukulele music with rhythms of roots reggae, and more recently pop and R&B—pushing Kolohe Kai into an elevated tier of Island Reggae.
Kolohe Kai was nominated for four 2021 Island Music Awards including Male Artist of the Year, Song of the Year for his recent single Catching Lightning, and Collaboration of the Year and Video of the Year for his Feel the Sunshine single featuring Hirie.
Kolohe Kai has been one of Hawaii’s most streamed reggae artist of the past decade with over 40 million streams in 2020 alone. Kolohe Kai’s album Paradise (2013) won a Nā Hōkū Hanohano Awards for Reggae Album of the Year and in 2019 his Summer To Winter won Reggae Album of the Year at the Island Music Awards. His early singles Ehu Girl and Cool Down remain Kolohe Kai’s all-time most popular songs on Spotify at over 41 million combined streams.

Matisyahu first started touring in packed clubs more than eleven years ago, prior to the release of Live at Stubbs, the now Gold record, and prior to that record’s single King without a Crown reaching #1 on the alternative rock radio charts. His performances were a raw expression of his spirituality at that time and were supported by musicians who played a foundation of roots reggae.
Fans within the improvisational-jam scene began flocking to Matisyahu’s shows shortly thereafter. King without a Crown climbed the charts and Matisyahu’s follow up record Youth was nominated for a Grammy. Through his lyrics, Matisyahu developed a more personal, artistic, and sophisticated way to express the yearning for deep spiritual meaning, and as his own beliefs opened up to find more variety and depth, the desire for his performances to match the unpredictable flow of life developed as well.
