Organizers of the annual Hawaiʻi Songwriting Festival today announced the featured performers for the HIT MAKERS Concert for June 22, 2019, 7 p.m., at the Westin Hapuna Beach Resort. Ticket info below.
The concert lineup (subject to change) includes: Brandon Colbein (Curious – Hayley Kiyoko; What I Need – Hayley Kiyoko feat. Kehlani; So Bad, and Pulse), littleDNGR (Everything is Awesome – JoLi), Chance Pena (Season 9 of The Voice), Streetlight Cadence (2x Nā Hōkū award winners), Amy Stroup (of Sugar and the Hi-Lows), John Cruz, Henry Kapono, Greg Holden (Home by Phillips Phillips; Boys in the Street, The Lost Boy, and Hold on Tight), and Kenny Loggins (“This Is It,” “I’m Alright,” “Footloose,” “Danger Zone,” “Danny’s Song,” “House on Pooh Corner,” and more).
Although you may not know some of these “Hit Makers” by name, you’ve heard their music on the charts and in major motion pictures, television shows, and ad campaigns (including The LEGO Movie, The Masked Singer, Glee, Sons of Anarchy, The Voice, Private Practice, One Tree Hill, American Idol,This is Us, Parenthood, Grey’s Anatomy, Vampire Diaries, Nashville, Siren, Five Feet Apart, and The Walking Dead).
The concert is the culmination of an intensive conference for professional songwriters and industry insiders, held annually on the Kohala Coast of Hawaiʻi Island. The intimate, casual setting creates a unique atmosphere where songwriters behind some of music’s greatest hits share the stories that inspired them, and the behind-the-scenes details that fans so rarely have access to.
