    Amy Hanaiali'i stops by to perform on The Time Machine at Mana'o Radio

    Grammy nominated singer-songwriter and multi Na Hoku Hanohano Award-winner, Amy Hanaiali'i , dropped in for an on-air performance during a special edition of Club Mana'o on The Time Machine this past Saturday afternoon. Her latest album "Generation Hawai'i" has just been officially released. It is a wonderful album produced by Michael Ruff who has written songs for Natalie Cole, The Doobie Brothers, Huey Lewis, BeBe Winans and Bonnie Raitt.

    Amy shared her music and stories of her newly born daughter on the radio program. Kathy Collins handled the interview while co-host Michael McCartney just sat mesmerized by Amy's hauntingly beautiful music aided by her album's lead guitarist David "Chino" Montero.

    Some of Hawaii's best musicians are on "Generation Hawai'i"; Keli'i Kaneali'i, Kirby Keough, Bobby Ingano and currently on tour drumming with Chicago Tris Imboden. Yeah Brah! That's Tris from 1973's "Pipeline Sequence" by Honk from the soundtrack to "Five Summer Stories. In addition to producer Michael Ruff on piano and bass, both saxophonist jazz legend Ernie Watts and Amy's multi-talented brother Eric Gilliom (solo recording artist and half of the duo "Barefoot Natives"), lend their respective crafts to the new album.

    Amy's been busy performing all over the world and cranking out one great album after another but her new motherly pride was evident in our studios.

    You can find out more about this talented artist at her official website:

    Amy Hanaiali`i Gilliom is one of Hawai`i 's shining stars, who has won the hearts of many with the resurrection of Ha`i (female falsetto singing). Amy has been classically trained with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Musical Theater and is passionate about Jazz and R&B. Combining these artistic styles make her a fluently diverse entertainer. A multi-Na Hoku Hanohano Award winner, her last five albums have won her Song of Year, Female Vocalist of the Year, Hawaiian Album of the Year and Group of the Year. Her first album “Hawaiian Tradition” placed her on the World Billboard Charts, a first for an album written solely in the Hawaiian language.

    Amy has recently been nominated for a Grammy in the new Hawaiian Category.

    Amy has opened for Carlos Santana in Germany, Willie Nelson, Joe Cocker, Wayne Newton, Arlo Guthrie. She has toured extensively on the East and West Coast, Germany, Japan, China and Tahiti.

    Aside from entertaining, Amy has taken an interest in entertainment law, lobbying the State Senate concerning publishing and copyright benefits for all artists within the State of Hawai`i.

    On August 8, 2002 , Pacific Business News acknowledged Amy's accomplishments with the coveted “40 under 40” Business Person of the Year Award. This award recognizes not just her talent, but her ability to market her fame for the sole enjoyment of her fans.

    Amy is also the granddaughter of Jennie Napua Woodd, whose many credits include being the choreographer on all of the major Hawaiian motion pictures in the 1930's and 40's while in New York City, Hollywood and Las Vegas. While performing at the Lexington Hotel in New York City, Jennie met Amy's grandfather, Lloyd B. Gilliom, who played first trumpet with Swing and Sway with Sammy Kaye and, occasionally, played with Tommy Dorsey.
