Kalei Gamiao could very well be the next young man to get you excited about the ukulele. He composes in a style that keeps you enthralled, even at the edge of your seat at times. As much as I know his playing will get even better, he already shows passion and precision most musicians never achieve. When you witness Kalei performing he has a contained energy and focus, yet he is obviously enjoying the moment and expressing within it freely.
I know Kalei from coming into our shop for the last few years. He is somewhat reserved yet friendly and often smiling, extremely musical and still humble, overall just a cool guy. Some gifted musicians allow the blessing of their talent to make them wiser and happier. I believe Kalei Gamiao is one of those few. I am sure you will continue to hear his name for years to come.
