music friends:

Bruce Campbell, a bassist (and a lot, lot more) performs in a variety of styles. He's appeared on all of Jamie's solo albums

Daniel Ho, singer, instrumentalist, composer, promoter of Hawaiian music ... and winner of many Grammys

Ryck Kaiser, fiddler extraordinaire, plays old timey, celtic and swing and is featured on Jamie's solo albums

George Kahumoku Jr., multiple Grammy winner, musician, storyteller, composer, teacher, author, cook, farmer... truly, Hawaii's Renaissance Man - the embodiment of the spirit of aloha Mahalo, Uncle George, for everything!

Ozzie Kotani, without doubt, is someone I count on as an inspiration. An amazing slack key guitarist who encourages me to do even more! (And he let me sit there and play his dobro for hours.)

Dan Possumato plays button accordion and melodeon in the old 'push and pull' style. As a solo performer, he's often accompanied by Jamie - the two of them are part of Fanai and Geese in the Bog

Rootbound, an old timey/Americana duo with a difference. Henry Koretzky (vocals, mandolin, guitar) and Debbi Kauffmann (vocals, guitar) join forces to present a refreshing, different take on the music

Dennis Soares is a talented musician based on the Big Island; more than that, he promotes music at many levels: concert series, Internet radio, Big Island Awards... just take a look to see all he does

KKCR is Kauai Community Radio - you can hear it throughout Kauai (90.9, 91.9, 92.7 & 95.1) and all over the world on the internet. The best programs? The overnight Hawaiian music and 7am to 11am (Hawaiian time) Hawaiian music programs - wonderful!

Celtic Light Studios - what would I do without Paul McKeown, his many talents, his friendship, his Weinschorle... engineer, co-producer and instrumentalist on my last two solo albums

Old Homestead Studios - Gary Mackender is an excellent musician and an easy-to-work-with recording engineer. I've record album tracks with him and lots of demos - wish I could work more, especially because he's also a great percussionist and keyboard player - a good guy, all round!
