Having only been into ukulele for about 8 months now, I'm new to the performers. I like them all... all the names we know, Jake, the late John King, Brittni, James Hill. But, for some reason, this young man strikes a chords with me. Something special about the way he plays. All of his videos, including the HiSessions, are truly sublime.

Most of you have been on UU for a long while, and are familiar with Kalei's 2008 CD (which I just purchased on iTunes). But, for those new to the Boards, as I am, listen to this fellow! For any longtime UU Boarders, anything you can tell me about this young musician would be appreciated.

All I know is that he's from one of my favorite places on the planet, Haleiwa, Hawaii. A place where I've visited many times, and adore (except when the crowds surge in for giant waves at "the Pipe" lol).

Aloha, all.

If you like him, too, Kimo, then I'm in great company. Aloha to you.

I see Dom's latest tab videos highlight young Kalei.

Thanks for posting this, it's one I've never heard. Kalei is one of my ukulele heros, can't wait for him to put out a new album.

Kalei said on HiSessions that he'll have a new CD in 2012 (hopefully).
