Brother Noland
Brother Noland
Brother Noland has deeply influenced contemporary Hawaiian music and is widely considered as the “Father of Jawaiian Music.” Fluid in both Slack Key and standard guitar tunings, Brother Noland goes wherever the music carries him. “As far back as I can remember,” Noland says, “I was always surrounded by the beautiful sounds of Hawaiian music.” Brother Noland is popular for his unique interpretations (or “Nolandization”) of songs yet remains respectful of traditional Hawaiian music and culture.
Born and raised in Kalihi-Palama on the island of O’ahu, Brother Noland is most famous for his original song “Coconut Girl,” which birthed the “Jawaiian” contemporary style (fusion of Hawaiian & Reggae) music. He has won numerous Nā Hōkū Hanohano Awards including Best Reggae Album and his music is featured in several movies including “Pineapple Express” and “Snakes in the Plane.” He is regularly featured in Slack Key Guitar festivals around the islands.
