Loving this bit of Hawaiian Soul magic our good friends just sent up while on holiday at Honolulu. SIMPLE SOULS put together this dope organic reworks & original joints at the Hideout Waikiki. Check out more of their music here.
Simple Souls, the acoustic incarnation of an established musical group, Kanalo, has been performing together since July 2003. What was initially a dare to play aside from their established band, Kanalo (which was then a 4-piece band), turned into a new passion for “unplugged” music and a fresh acoustic sound. Simple Souls holds it down with an acoustic guitar, percussions, 2 vocals and a killer list of songs.
Both members add flavor to the group. Zaysha, with a voice that was destined for rock ‘n’ roll, is the duo’s powerhouse. Jenn adds a little fun with her creative singing style and zany personality. Their music selection is so extensive, you’ll never tire listening to the sound that is, Simple Souls.
If you haven’t been to a Simple Souls show, you’re missing out! Check out the gig schedule and come down to meet them!
