Album Notes
John Keawe is a songwriter and slack-key guitarist who was born on the Big Island of Hawaii, in the little town of Hawi in North Kohala. John grew up with rock and roll music and enjoyed listening to singer/songwriters.

After a four year tour in the Navy, John returned to his home and was drawn to the sound of Hawaiian slack-key. He listened and watched and taught himself to play this style of music. Through the years, he has developed his own distinct style.

About the same time, John began to perform publicly and also composing his own songs. Two of his early compositions "Ka`auhuhu Homestead" and "Big Island Magic" were chosen for album cuts on projects that involved various artists.Through the years, John has released seven recordings under the label of Homestead Productions.
