Kimo Nevius

Maui's Musical Storyteller



I've been a folk singer for nearly three decades, and my music is steeped in everything from traditional 19th-century whaling songs to Woody Guthrie to the work of modern-day protest singers like Billy Bragg.

My newest release is ROLLING DOWN TO OLD MAUI. This new project is a unique book/CD hybrid. In a ten-song cycle, I tell the story of Hawaii from the arrival of Captain James Cook in the 1770s to the end of the territorial era. The lavishly illustrated accompanying volume provides listeners with not just the lyrics, but also the history behind each song along with translations of the Hawaiian language words used throughout.
