Kawehi
Kawehi
Hawaiian independent artist Kawehi (kuh-veh-hee) is known across the nation for her live shows as a "one-woman band," creating intricate loops via beatboxing, a guitar, a midi keyboard and Ableton Live. She is known for her opinionated songwriting, centering her music messages around social issues and injustices. Kawehi's videos and songs have been featured on CBS News Most Viral Videos, Vimeo, Booooooom!, Sony Music, Huffington Post, Esquire, Spin, Elle, Maxim, People, Devour, Gizmodo, etc. Her original music can be found on commercials throughout Asia for MasterCard and Casio. As an independent artist, Kawehi has taken to Kickstarter, raising funds for four EP's, a live album, a documentary and a US national tour through crowd-funding alone - staying true to herself and her fans by making the kind of music she is proud of. Kawehi is making a name for herself as a true DIY artist, creating music that is honest, creative and relative - and generating much-deserved attention from both fans and industry folk alike.

"Fate works in mysterious ways, and this statement couldn't be any truer for The Weekend Riot. Coming together with a common mindset of a "go for broke" attitude, nothing was going to stop the Philly duo from succeeding. But, as fate would have it, The Weekend Riot got their opportunity much sooner than they expected.

Producer Ace Enders immediately recognized their potential. The magic that he was searching for was right in front of him, and he immediately seized the opportunity. The Weekend Riot, consisting of Johnny Costa and Bruce Wiegner, wrote their first track with Enders in half a day. The chemistry was instantly apparent and it's been a perfect pairing ever since.

Beyond the charisma, energy, and carefully crafted haircuts, these friends are extremely accomplished musicians that plan to break the mold of a conventional pop act. Costa and Wiegner have a unique vocal ability which shines through in their polished harmonies and go far beyond the average transparent radio group. The mutual passion for music and success that they share shines brightly, as they are not simply performers but best friends working together to carve their place in history. The lyrics, feelings, and emotions are all organic elements that make The Weekend Riot stand out in a crowded room of faceless musicians. Their words and music are theirs alone and nothing will hold them back from reaching the top."
