Born in Los Angeles, schooled in Hawai’i, travelin this world with a voice and a guitar.
RootHub grew up with one foot in the city and the other in the sea. Whether he was roaming California, coming and going from Mexico, visiting family in Hawaii, or finding friends from all nations in LA, he always kept his ears and eyes open.
Coming from a musical family, he received a guitar from his folks at the age of 14 which helped him prepare for a strong relationship with music. On Oahu he found a deeper connection to the ocean and the people of Hawai’i. On Kauai he found teachers that helped him find his voice and songwriting style. Drawing from a vast list of influences from Bob Marley to Tom Waits to Nina Simone to Run DMC to breaking waves and subway trains and back again, giving him a unique style all his own.
On returning to the lower 48 he found himself traveling the country with a backpack and guitar for years. Without a care for fortune or fame, he just stayed true to the soul and the song. He played his first show in New York city and returned to the city of angels with a new song in his mouth.
Through a stoke of talent, luck, and fate, he went out on the road for his first coast to coast tour supporting national acts. Spending the better part of two years on the road helped him hone his live skills and expand the definition of his music.
RootHub is currently residing in Hawai’i, working on records, living life, and spreading aloha. Hopefully he will get to sing you a song real soon
