ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
BIO
One of the instrument's earliest pioneers and one of Emmett Chapman's first students, Michael is a Chapman Stick virtuoso with 38 years experience. Played with both hands using a pianistic technique on a stringed instrument, the Chapman Stick is unique, versatile and probably the most expressive musical instrument ever devised. The result is music that sounds unlike any other instrument.

Devoted to spreading Knowledge of the Chapman Stick, Michael has performed at over a thousand festivals, fairs & corporate events combined. Carlos Santana said his music is "a gift from the heart". He's been an opening act for The Beach Boys and has introduced many to the new instrument including Mick Fleetwood, Herbie Hancock, Keith Emerson, Steve Morse and others.

His albums and music have spread worldwide and he's shared his talents with well over a million people in the last decade. His music has been featured on national radio, television appearances and a short documentary. His musical style encompasses light jazz, classic rock, latin, Hawaiian and other influences. With a catalog of 19 releases he is the most prolific Chapman Stick recording artist to date.

Wonderful mix of relaxing music
I picked up a signed copy of the Hawaiian Paradise album while in Lahaina. Michael and his wife had a display booth set up at the Banyan Tree and the music being generated by Michael and his Chapman Stick really got my attention. The Hawaiian Paradise album has a wonderful mix of relaxing music that is perfect for unwinding after a busy day at work. I’ve also put the entire album on my iPhone.

Hawaiian Paradise
It was a distinct pleasure to meet Michael on Maui and get a copy of "Hawaiian Paradise" from the artist himself! It is a beautiful collection of songs recorded in amazing fidelity that capture the beauty of Maui, the laid back bustle of Lahaina and everythng wonderful about Hawaii.

An Abosolutely Outstanding Musician
This review is for Michael K as a musician, rather than for a specific album. I am a musician/bandleaer/booking agent myself, and I have known and played with Michael for over 15 years. He is a wonderful talent who plays with an open heart. You can feel his presence when listening to his music, and now that he is living in Hawaii, the beauty and heart come out even more. His musicianship is first class, and when listening to any of his tracks, you know that you are in the presence of someone very special. I highly recommend any of his albums or live performances, and that he plays the Chapman Stick is even more amazing!

Michael and his music sink into your soul....that's why I hired him to play at my son's wedding in January! Absolutely magical!!!! I haven't come down from that cloud since!!!!
Thank Michael!!!!

A Bit of Paradise
Need to rest your mind and escape for a couple minutes? Put on any Michael Kollwitz song (my favorite "Puamana or Maui Sunset"), close your eyes, listen to the music and the next thing you know you are sitting on a beach on Maui soaking up rays. Works everytime! After a couple of minutes you are refreshed and ready for anything, even the coldest of nights in the North East.

Hawaiian Paradise
The album lets me recall my August, 2009 visit to Maui. The mood is so reflective of the paradise created in Maue! I play it often in Houston.

Marlene Foster

Hawaiian Paradise reminds us of beautiful Maui.
Love your music. We have Hawaiian Paradise and it reminds us of beautiful Maui. We’ll be visiting there in October and hope to see you under the Banyon Tree. Why don’t you do a jazz or blues CD? We’ve heard a little jazz from you and absolutely love your style.
