WEST HAWAII TODAY | BIG ISLAND ENTERTAINMENT SCENE FRIDAY, MAY 12, 2017 | 7 Since the origin of the band, Life In Pursuit has musically evolved into their unique sound, which is described as laid-back, rhythm-based acoustic rock with tinges of hip hop, reggae and blues. In 2013, we made our first album and then played at Kauai Music Festival. In 2014, we made our second album and were nominated for best alternative album for the Na Hoku (Hanohano) Awards on Oahu.” The band did more than just play for the Kauai Music Festival, their song, “Sister Song,” won best song at the Kauai Music Festival Songwriting Competition and caught the ear of famous producer Rupert Hine. This led the way to the trio’s album “Nickel & Dimin’ It” being nominated for a Na Hoku Hanohano Award. Life In Pursuit continues to perform at local music venues throughout the state, but have started focusing more on songwriting and recording. They currently have two albums, “New Horizons,” a mostly-acoustic mix of original songs, and “Nickel & Dimin’ It,” a collection of more upbeat tunes including piano and guitar with a touch of blues and rap. They are currently working on their third album with producer, Charles Brotman. Expect to see more of this young trio in upcoming years, as they’ve only begun to pursue their life’s dreams. Fans will enjoy the opportunity to see Life In Pursuit grow and evolve through their songs, their writings, and their performances. Info: www.facebook. com/lifeinpursuit/ ■
