California native, David Kai was raised with song, sunshine and saltwater in his veins. He was introduced to music at a young age by his Grandfather who was a very talented musician. As a youth, David’s first love of music began when he heard the drums. For many years, he played the drums in every genre from Punk to Jazz, while expressing himself through his passion for skateboarding and chasing waves. His evolution as an artist began with his desire to play the guitar and write music. He began singing and writing his own songs by the time he entered college. To this day you can hear the roots & rhythm of his years on the drums in his percussive style of guitar playing.
Like many college students, David desired more freedom in his life. So, he withdrew from school, sold his drum set, left his job at the local music store and set sail for the world. Fully equipped with a free spirit, a guitar and backpack, he took to the school of the road. He hitchhiked across the U.S., writing songs, meeting people and paving his own path. Finally, he landed in Hawaii on the Big Island, where he called home for many years.
Through his journeys, David has been blessed to connect with native tribal elders from both North and South America. These elders continue to share their teachings and songs through ceremonial ways and have taught him a way of life. These native teachings, along with his Christian upbringing, have had a profound influence on David and his music. It has allowed him to open the hearts of his audience with a deeper love & understanding. His message is universal and he draws no lines of separation by labeling his music as anything other than from the heart.
David now lives in the hills of Southern Oregon and continues to spend much of his time traveling, writing songs, seeking ocean swells and sharing the spirit of his music.
David Kai released his first album titled "In This Moment" in 2010 & his latest album, "AWAKE," was released in 2014
