Faith has been singing and playing music all her life. As a child growing up in Hawai‘i she was influenced by her culture and the sounds of Rock-n-Roll and Motown. A resident of the Bay Area since the early 80’s, Faith has been a member of several local Hawaiian bands and began a solo career in 2007.
She made Mele.com’s 2020 Top 12 list with her fourth album, Ku‘u ‘Āina, Aloha. Ku‘u ‘Āina, Aloha is an album of Hawaiian melodies and her sultry voice whisks you to the islands with original songs and Hawaiian classics.
Mele.com is widely recognized for its extensive and varied online Hawaiian music. The first independent online retailer brings the music and sounds of Hawai’i to shores far beyond the islands. Each year Mele.com tallies their top 12 selling albums; and Faith Ako’s fourth album Ku‘u ‘Āina, Aloha makes top 8.
Ku‘u ‘Āina, Aloha, “speaks to my birthplace on the windward side of O‘ahu where my 15 brothers, sisters and I were raised and where my heart is truly at peace,” said the singer. The CD includes six original compositions, “it was important to me that I weave together stories and memories of my home – the fragrances, the sounds, the sights, and the beauty of the islands. And of course, I’ve included some of my favorite hula standards, which are a must!”
