I discovered Kalai as a local artist in Utah. He's half Hawaiian, and he actually has a birth defect in his left hand but it doesn't stop him from writing some awesome music. Kalai released his first album in 2004 and he has a total of five full albums today! There are tracks on every album that I like. His most popular song is called "On My Mind". Some of my favorites are "Divide Me" and "The Onlyest Thing". I really enjoy most of the music Kalai has written. He has a really respectable different type of sound. We can definitely hear bluesy influences in his music, and I really like that.
Check out Kalai on iTunes.
