Brother Noland has deeply influenced contemporary Hawaiian music and is widely considered as the “Father of Jawaiian Music.” Fluid in both slack key and standard guitar tunings, Brother Noland goes wherever the music carries him.

“As far back as I can remember,” Noland says, “I was always surrounded by the beautiful sounds of Hawaiian music.”

Brother Noland is popular for his unique interpretations of songs, yet remains respectful of traditional Hawaiian music and culture. Noland is most famous for his original song, “Coconut Girl,” which birthed the “Jawaiian” contemporary style of music.

He has won numerous Nā Hōkū Hanohano Awards, including Best Reggae Album, and his music is featured in several movies, including “Pineapple Express” and “Snakes on a Plane.” He is regularly featured in Slack Key Guitar festivals around the islands.

Brother Noland is an impactful player and one of Hawaiʻi's most respected artists. He was honored in 2014 by the State of Hawaiʻi for a "Lifetime Achievement in Music" award. But despite all the accolades, Brother Noland has never forgotten his roots and the community. Through his philanthropy he helps at-risk youth define their choices and make a quality connection to the community through his Hoʻea Initiative, dedicated to teaching children about how to live off the ʻaina (land) and the ocean.

As a steward of the land, Noland has a deep connection to Hawaiʻi and even cares for acreage on the island of Moloka’i while preserving Hawaiian customs, indigenous plants and animal species. His music and community spirit always carries a message of positive reflection, while rooted in the reality we face today.
