Emerging from the backyards of Waipahu, Hawaii, Rebel Souljahz began as four friends born with a drive to perform. They started singing acapella together in high school, later developing into a full band where they quickly built a name for themselves performing at parties and in the clubs of Honolulu.
Their debut effort, Nothing To Hide, teams the boys of Rebel Souljahz (Mike Maglinti, Will Su'a, Bubba Hodges and Kulani Cozo) with producer/arranger Imua Garza (Opihi Pickers, Kaipo, Kawao) for a full-blown all original island music extravaganza.
With standout tracks like "Darling Angel", "Nothing To Hide" and "The One", the music of Rebel Souljahz will quickly appeal to mainstream island music enthusiasts and lovers of Hawaii's local island reggae.
The groups signature vocal sound can be heard on the ballad "I'm Not The Man For You" featuring the sweet tenor lead vocals of Will Su'a juxtaposed against the rough soulful lead vocals of Mike Maglinti and then augmented by the tight harmonies of Bubba Hodges and Kulani Cozo.
The Steppas are comprised of Rick Star (lead vocals/lead guitar) Na’ea Kaopua (vocals/percussion/keys) Kekolu Pavao (bass) Busy Legaspi (drums) and Makana Rosetti (keyboards) these five musicians have recreated the landscape of reggae music in Hawaii.
