Almost always, when one previews a new album, one hears the notes first, then the words, then the musical setting. It is a rare experience when one hears all the elements as a single unit. When this happens, in extraordinary cases, it creates a reaction in the listener that is beyond words. The silence within the listener becomes thunderous. So it is with the album, 'Hanaiali'i'. Amy's intese, but gentle interpretation of what Hawaiian lyrical poetry really is. Willie's multiple-intricate, then simplistic, then bombastic musical brush strokes create ever elegant, watercolor-like musical washes that are a platinum-plus setting for Amy's sensitive, all-emotion-producing moments of musical realization.
About the Artist
Amy and Willie is so unique, and their artistry so interconnected that when each develops an independent musical thought, it is usually a mirror image of the other. Yet, each artist is uniquely, artistically independent of the other.
