Learning Piano, then ukulele and so forth. His main instruments would be his voice (a sultry, 90’s rock-esque, tone with great riffs) and guitar (from traditional blues n’ folk to traditional hawaiian slack key, reggae, metal & much more!)

“I play guitar, piano, ukulele, mandolin, harmonica, banjo, bass, drums and a bunch of “Band” instruments. I just love to create & spread the ALOHA! My music is where I get to tell you who I am, what I’ve been through and how I’ve grown as both an artist and a person.”

Kapali has shared the stage with names such as Ryan Cabrera, Ron Pope, Teddy Geiger, Keaton Simons, Man Overboard, Anuhea, HAPA, Sashamon and More!
