Born and raised on the Big Island of Hawai'i, Lito Arkangel found at an early age that music was going to be an essential part of his life. Whether sitting next to his grandmother while she played the piano for her church choir, or engaging in frequent "kanikapila" sessions, Lito and music came hand in hand.
Lito decided to make music his full time career in 1999 after returning from a 4yr enlistment in the US Navy. Since then Lito has continued to evolve as an accomplished professional entertainer and educator on the Big Island of Hawai'i.
After 13+ years and thousands of hours performing on stages in and around the backyards of Hawaii, Lito is now releasing his first single entitled "Quality Time". This original composition from Lito sets the tone for his upcoming EP which will feature his skills as a singer, song writer and performer. Lito Arkangel is one of a handful of artists who is able to engage the listener in a musical journey unlike any other. Lito once said "I want them to have a 3-D experience when they listen to me". "Litoʻs style is reminiscent of a time when music from Hawaii was authentic and creative". "The less is more approach fits him perfectly and helps him to stand out in a market which has been monopolized by one specific sound"
So let the music and storytelling begin, and allow yourself to be taken on the musical ride that is Lito Arkangel. You will surely not be disappointed!
