Anuhea: Life inspires.

Anuhea (pronounced Ah-New-Hey-Ah) is a self-taught guitarist and song-writer born on the Hawaiian island of Maui. On her self-titled debut album, Anuhea weaves soul, R‘n’B, jazz and reggae with smart, personal lyricism. With seductively sophisticated pop vocals and spirited guitar accompaniment, Anuhea shares the same independent attitude of celebrated female artists like Gwen Stefani and Lily Allen.

Anuhea’s album opens with the jazzy and unapologetic track “Charismatic SOB.” Girls around the world will relate to Anuhea’s spunky challenge, calling out her crush to “climb off your pedestal” and “see that what you could’ve had.” The soulful and breezy “Right Love – Wrong Time” features parlor piano and Hammond B3, with crisp drum hits. The infectious hooks in “Right Love” show off Anuhea’s songwriting chops. And on “Fly,” she takes a look at the bright side of life, “I've been told the universe conspires to assist / In making dreams realities for those who persist / All things are for purpose they won't pass you by / Every knock you take is an opportunity to fly.”

Born into a musical family, Rylee Anuheake'alaokalokelani Jenkins (Anuhea) began showcasing her talents in coffee shops and clubs while still in high school. Her grandfather is a country guitarist, and her aunt, Nalani Choy, is part of the award winning contemporary Hawaiian music trio Na Leo Pilimehana. Anuhea has found local success opening for Brushfire Recording artists Jack Johnson and Matt Costa as well as collaborating with indie favorites Gym Class Heroes in a remake of their song “Viva La White Girl.”

It’s easy to see that Anuhea’s lyrical flow stems from her early musical influences. “When I was in elementary school I would listen to TLC, Salt n Pepa, Color Me Badd and Maxi Priest on my walk-man and memorize every word to every rap, every ad-lib, and every run,” reflects Anuhea. “Looking back, I realize that I was probably the only second grade girl at Makawao Elementary that could rap!”

An eco-conscious surfer as well as an outdoor enthusiast, Anuhea is not just another pretty face. She is a savvy entrepreneur who acted as her own manager, agent, producer and distributor before signing with One Hawaii Music. “My main goal as a music-maker is to inspire people to find their dream, whatever it may be," she says. "I just feel lucky that I've found my dream and am able to pursue it.”

She's on the positive freak flow. My conversation with Anuhea was peppered with references to inspirational speeches by Nelson Mandela and excerpts from Paulo Coelho's The Alchemist. Even her MySpace blog reads like an affirmation from Chicken Soup for the Anti-Beauty-Pageant-Turned-Songwriter Chick Soul.

"I encourage you to think about your life, your goals, and realize what exactly it is that's preventing you from achieving them. It's probably yourself. And frankly, that's just dumb. That idea is the inspiration for my song 'Endlessly.' 'You trust that you won't make it, 'cause you hate to make mistakes and your life has been nothing but struggles in this silly rat race... But on and on, endlessly you try.' And keep trying, you! Keep focused on your goals and thinking positive. The power of the mind is amazing. "

This will be Anuhea’s first release on the WorldSound label. Produced by Drew K, and mastered by Grammy winner Gavin Lurssen, the album arrives April 21st, 2009.

Paula Fuga: Aloha Family and Friends, Thank you so much for the beautiful comments and messages, they help to inspire and strengthen me on this wonderful journey. Ke Akua blessed me with the gift of voice and vision and I thank you all for supporting me in my dreams for if there were no souls to listen, there would be no songs to sing.
