Hawaiian singer-songwriter Henry Kapono has been delighting audiences with his gritty vocal style and island vibes for over 30 years. With his expansive catalog and charming stage presence, Kapono keeps fans in high spirits at his live shows with rosuing renditions of hits like "I'm Coming Home" and "Stand In the Light". Whether he's plucking his ukelele or playing his signature white electric guitar, the crooner is a legendary act who never fails to warm hearts and minds on his nostalgic tours.
Born and raised in Hawaii, Henry Kapono got his start at the age of five, singing in the local church choir and playing ukelele with his father. He continued to teach himself other instruments including guitar by watching and listening to some of his favorite musicians. In high school and college he was an accomplished football player with plans of going pro, but after several injuries he switched gears and returned to his musical roots. He fronted the Waikiki-based group Pakalolo, playing shows around the islands and gaining a steady cult following along the way. He earned mainstream fame when he formed a duo alongside bandmate Cecilio Rodriguez and landed a deal with Columbia Records. Since then the Grammy-nominated artist has released 17 solo records, won 12 Hoku Hano Hano Awards (Hawaiian Grammys), played alongside Jimmy Buffet, and toured around the world. The decorated singer has three decades of performing under his belt, and he always has ticket buyers feeling the good vibes when he takes the stage.
