John has distinguished himself as one of the most talented artists that has ever come from Hawaii. He was named the Best Singer Songwriter by Hawaii Magazine in 2008. This well-earned reputation became even more solidified when he released his long-awaited second album, One of These Days in 2007. It debuted firmly at #1 in Hawaii, #2 on the Billboard Heatseekers Chart and #6 on the Billboard World Chart. The Hawaii Academy of Recording Arts gave the CD its highest honor in 2008, by awarding John the Na Hoku Hanohano Award for Contemporary Album of the Year. Honolulu Magazine named the album one of the "Top 25 Greatest Hawaii Albums of the New Century" in 2012. It delivers more of the warm, heartfelt melodies and passionate, soulful vocals that John's fans have grown to know and love. Look for album #3 sometime in 2014.
