“Kauai Motion” compilation mastered by her famed producer “David Cochrane” musician, lyrist in his own right, helped elevate Lionel Ritchie, Paula Abdul and many other talents to superstar status.
Now with the success of her first EP Album, under her record label KAUAIIAN GIRL ENTERPRISES, this singer/songwriter ignites flavors of island reggae, mixed in with authentic Polynesian instruments & sounds, giving her upcoming album REACH HIGHER a WORLD music flare and an exotic twist of hypnotic melodies.
