While he is a man of many passions, music is the consuming passion of his life. He is a storyteller at heart and music is how he shares his stories.

For nearly 40 years Brother Noland has filled the airwaves with original compositions that have become local classics and island treasures. He is most famous for timeless hits such as “Coconut Girl” and “Are You Native”, and is often credited with the birth of “Jawaiian” contemporary style music by infusing traditional Hawaiian music with reggae, jazz and blues sounds. He has won numerous Nā Hōkū Hanohano Awards including Best Reggae Album and most recently the Slack Key Kiho’alu Legacy Award in 2018. His music is featured in several movies including “Pineapple Express” and “Snakes in the Plane.” Brother Noland is a regular stage performer that brings his classics to his fans and audiences, along with traditional Hawaiian music, slack key, and Hawaiian swing music.

As a Lifetime Achievement Awardee, Brother Noland is designated as a Life Member of the Hawai‘i Academy of Recording Arts. Despite the awards and accolades, Brother Noland has never forgotten his roots and his community. Through his philanthropy, he serves as a mentor to Hawaiʻi’s youth, helping them to define their choices and foster a quality connection to their communities. Brother Noland is founder of Hōʻea Initiative, dedicated to teaching Hawaiʻi’s keiki (children) about how to live off the ʻĀina (land) and the ocean. The Hōʻea Initiative programs are a passionate effort to share universal understanding of indigenous knowledge and principles found outside in the natural world. As a steward of the land, Noland has a deep connection to Hawaiʻi and preserving Hawaiian customs, indigenous plants and animal species. In 2013, he authored the “Hawaiian Survival Handbook” where he shares the outdoor skills he has developed over a lifetime spent in Hawai’i’s forests and waters.

While music is Brother Noland’s root and wing to Hawai’i and beyond, he sees it as just one way to connect to his heritage and only one facet of what it means to be Hawaiian. His music and community spirit carries a message of positive reflection, while rooted in the reality we face today. Brother Noland proudly carries with him the values of Aloha through his music and his life.
