“Hold on just a little bit longer…in time you’ll feel a little stronger,” Hawaiian singer-songwriter Paula Fuga sings in a soulful cut that seems tailor-made for our time. With a beautiful disposition and sweet-yet-powerful voice, Fuga has become one of Hawaii’s most sought-after artists, earning a Na Hoku Award (Hawaii’s Grammy), and collaborating with Jack Johnson, Ben Harper, and reggae royalty Ziggy Marley.
Growing up on Oahu, she experienced homelessness and hunger, and began expressing through poetry and blossomed into a songwriter when she picked up ‘ukulele. Impossible to peg into one genre, Fuga’s “modern Hawaiian soul” weaves widely-accessible melodies with English and Hawaiian lyrics. With her latest album on Jack Johnson’s Brushfire Records and her passion to give back, she’s inspiring youth and sharing the welcoming spirit of aloha with the world – and with you.
