Maoli
Maoli (meaning “Native” in Hawaiian) started in Maui with Glenn Awong, a 14 year-old with a passion for music, and Kana Akiu-Corpuz. In their sophomore year, the aspiring vocalist and bassist began writing original music at the encouragement of their high school teacher. It was also during this time that Glenn started recording demos of his songs. By the time he reached his senior year, Glenn was ready to share his music with a greater audience.



In 2005, Glenn and the band he formed, “No Boundaries”, won a Battle of the Bands competition on the island of Maui. With numerous performances already under his belt, Glenn then formed Maoli in 2007 with a new lineup of talented musicians, including bassist, Kana. 



Maoli took the islands by storm in 2008 with their debut album entitled, “Groovin” having one hit after the next (“No One”, “Write Me A Letter”, and “So Incredible”); this was the groundbreaking album that first established the group as a premiere Hawaiian Island Reggae recording band. In 2010, Maoli did it again with their 2nd release, “Rock Easy”, featuring another treasure trove of #1 hits “Breaking My Heart”, “Whisper” and “Rock Easy”. Their 3rd album entitled “Arise” took to a national and international audience exploring Maolis love for various genres of music. “Blew it”, "Something about your love" and “Time to get over” are jus some of the diverse hits that this album displays. Maoli’s road to success continued as they toured the islands and the world promoting their very own unique Island sound.

In 2012 Maoli welcomed new band member, guitarist & vocalist, Nu’u Sing-Kahalehau. Nu’u hails from a background of musicians, including his father, Shane Kahalehau otherwise known as “Hawaiian Homeboy”. But Nu’u isn’t a stranger to Maoli, as his talents were also featured on the “Rock Easy” album.



Now, the boys are currently in the studio recording new music and a 4th album to follow. Original songs will be penned by the band’s founder and leader Glenn Awong as well as Nuu Sing-Kahalehau as new musical and life influences inspire these talented men. Prepare for smashing new music coming soon.

Stay true to your roots as their style continuously evolves and they spread their sound to a city near you!

Idoljob
Idoljob
Roots Rock Reggae band from Arlington Texas! Bringing all the Reggae Hits. Smooth Harmonies, Heart-Stoppin Bass, that Dub Stylee and Wailing Guitar riffs to melt your face off! Guaranteed to make you shake it and leave you smiling! "When Idol's on the Job, it goes hard like cement."

idoljob started out as a passion project for lead vocalist Michael Peace in 2006 with a cast of rotating players and became a highly sought after party band for the Dallas/Fort Worth area, playing all kinds of venues.

After taking some time off for family and other music endeavors, Michael (formerly of Champa) and lead guitarist Terry Davis (formerly of Egress & 40 oz to Freedom) started to jam together again and sparked the idea of making idoljob a full time band.

To fill out the band Michael asked his sister Angela Peace to join the band for backup vocals/effects and Terry asked Bobby Liszewski (formerly of Egress) to join on bass. Then the pursuit of the drummer began, finally resting with Jay "J-Bird" Wilson (formerly of Blood Stain Carpet and current project Lost Art Legacy-hip-hop duo). Combining all their backgrounds of reggae, rock, funk, roots, soul, jazz, metal, pop, hip-hop and rap - they plan on kicking up the volume a few notches in the reggae scene!

2017 - idoljob is currently working on originals to be released soon!
