Artists from Hawai‘i have been making their mark on the world music scene for decades. Keola Beamer, with a career that spans more than 30 years, has done just that. As a world-renowned slack key guitarist, he has certainly earned his place as one of only a handful of true “Masters” in the world.

Raiatea Helm has risen to the TOP of the industry at such a young age. Winner of every major music award in the islands, this Billboard World Chart recording artist grows with every CD and never ceases to amaze us.

Raiatea wishes to thank “Ke Akua for Your continued guidance and strength. Thank you Mom and Dad for always supporting me without question. I love you both unconditionally. I want to thank the remainder of my family and friends for their love during this beautiful journey. Guy, you are the inspiration for this project - and when I sing, I think of you. Aloha wau iā ʻoe. Uncle Keola, you have opened my eyes to a world of music that only a few people will ever know. I am so thrilled to have shared this path with you. You are a genius! I love you. Last but not least, thank you to all my fans! You are the reason I continue to sing and without whom none of this would be possible. Mahalo nui for all your loyalty and love throughout all of the years.”
