In the early 1990's after returning from a trip to Hawaii, I heard "The Island" playing on KTWV (The Wave) in Los Angeles and was blown away. Someone had written a song about the place I loved and just visited. I called the station to find out who the artist was and they gave me a P.O. Box address and a phone number for Allan Thomas on Kauai. I ordered the CD, called him up and on my next trip to Kauai met up with him to film this music video. It rained for three days before we could get started, but finally the clouds parted and we were on our way.
A few years later, I moved to Maui and now get to see Allan play live every couple years - not often enough. Thank God for the internet, CDs and downloadable music!
Allan's music is hard to categorize - NO head-banging, screaming guitars and blurry vocals. Allan's lyrics are clever and real, his melodies are catchy, a variety of rhythms and beats and styles - and always Heartfelt.
