"SWAY" BY TAVANA
Album Cover Art & Inserts by Elsa Senner
2021 Na Hoku Hano Hano Award for Best Album Graphics
Tavana is a multi-instrumentalist from Honolulu, HI who uses electronic drum triggers to lay down a variety of grooves with his feet while simultaneously playing guitar, banjo, lap steel, or ukulele and singing soulful, island-inspired Rock and Blues.
Sway features 12-tracks of island-inspired rock and blues accompanied by a wide variety of different sound elements, and guest artist features including Mike Love, Ron Artis II, Paul Izak, and Caleb Keolanui (The Green). Tavana’s next level musicality produces a rich experience uniquely captured throughout the new soundtrack.
"My rig has grown over the years, and I now use six electronic drum pedals to achieve my desired sound. I perform everything live and use no looping. Everything is played moment to moment...It's hard to explain how fun it is to do this. Its like having a whole band in your body and mind."
“I am so excited for people to hear the new album, I really poured my heart and soul into every song. The process was incredibly fulfilling to me, and I hope listeners get something out of it, especially during these uncertain times.”
Tavana has been the supporting act for Alabama Shakes, Shakey Graves, Xavier Rudd, Jenny Lewis, Julian Marley, and Kaleo to name just a few. In 2009, Eddie Vedder invited Tavana to sing 'Hawaii 78'- a Hawaii anthem of sorts - with him at the Hawaii Theatre. "He's more the exception than the rule, he is a great human and I'm glad to know him" said Vedder while introducing Tavana to the audience. From a recording of their performance together, Vedder produced a limited vinyl record that was sent out to 10,000 Pearl Jam fans.
