If you’re looking for a feel-good new song to groove to, Hawaii trumpeter, composer
and recording artist Ann Hoku Lyn delivers again with her latest release, “Come Home
to Your Dinner.” The next single of Ann’s upcoming album, “Come Home to Your
Dinner” showcases Hoku Lyn’s skills as a trumpet player as she flexes on riffs with
saxophonist Reggie Griffin on this funk/soul tune.
“Come Home to Your Dinner” highlights Ann Hoku Lyn’s versatility as a composer. “It’s
fun to explore different moods when writing songs,” says Hoku Lyn. “I’m a pretty quiet
person, but writing songs like this lets me get out some fun and more assertive moods.”
“I’m not talking about calories; I’m talking about that soul-nourishing conversation” is a
lyric of the song. “I remember a time in NYC when I was starving myself and became
very skinny. I was conforming to the outside world but not nourishing my soul, and found
myself becoming a person unrecognizable to my inner self.” The song’s message is
about soul nourishment and the beauty of real conversations in your most
intimate relationships with others and yourself.
Serving up another song that’s sure to satisfy the musical palette, her recent release
features local vocalists Binti Bailey and Haunani, drummer Russ McKinnon, bassist Eric
Sittner, saxophone, organist Reggie Griffin and guitarist and producer Truth Musiq.
Locals may have heard Ann playing with bands like Bump City, the Olliephonics or
Kahulanui or with her band and her exciting new project “Love Rebel” at the
Brewfest or Kahilu Theatre.
The single “Come Home to Your Dinner” will be available on all digital music platforms on August
