|Although Kamuela's stomping ground is Honolulu, Hawaii, in the last 5 years he has traveled throughout the US and Japan (and at SXSW 2010), gigging under different guises and genres of original solo experimental ukulele, rock, reggae, traditional Hawaiian, solo guitar, folk, and singer / songwriter.
Kamuela has five albums (and one single) to his producer credit with three more already in the works.
In 2011, Kamuela won the Na Hoku Hanohano Award for Best Rock category for his album "Stream Dreams." This is the highest honor one can receive for music in Hawaii. His comedy song "She's Grumpy It's My Fault" was a semi-finalist in the International Song writing Contest (ISC) 2011, and "Green Light Go 2.0" made "suggested artist" honors in the 2011 Song of the Year Contest. It has been touted that he is possibly "one of the best ukulele players in the world."
Kamuela is the younger brother of Making the Band (Original Series) cast member Ikaika Kahoano (also of Otown and LMNT) and the son of local Hawaii entertainment legend Kimo Kahoano.
