Kalaʻe Parish has been a professional musician and entertainer in Hawaiʻi since 2013, performing throughout the islands and abroad. In 2016, he began his solo journey as an artist performing at steady spots in Honolulu and recording his very first EP. This new EP titled, Where I Reside, hit the airwaves in December 2020. With all original songs written and composed by Kalaʻe, this eclectic, 6-track EP is a fresh twist of music from pop country infused with lyrics about his island home to smooth Latin rock to love ballads.
In 2020, Kalaʻe was a featured songwriter on Kuha’o Maunakea, an 18-track compilation album with some of Hawaiʻi’s top performers, and was recognized at the 2020 Nā Hōkū Hanohano Awards for his composition of “We Are A Voice” featured on that album. In 2021, "Where I Reside" by Kalaʻe won a Nā Hōkū Hanohano Award for Extended Play (EP) of the year.
Kala’e has performed with top artists Henry Kapono, Brother Noland, and John Cruz. As a Hawaiʻi Island artist residing in beautiful Waimea, he continues to perform regularly throughout all the islands and is actively in the recording studio with new original music to be released soon.
