Stef Mariani, winner of the 2018 Nā Hōkū Hanohano Award for Alternative Album of the Year, has delivered yet another soul-filled LP full of ‘straight-from-the-heart’ melodies; Highway of Love. It’s the follow up to her passionately folk driven album, “Stay Gold.” Born into a musical family from Santa Cruz, California, Stef’s inspiration flows from Hawai‘i. She performs regularly at venues around Hawai‘i.
Mariani finds her inspiration from classic rock artists like The Doobie Brothers, Crosby Stills & Nash, Joni Mitchell, John Mellencamp and Bruce Springsteen. Highway of Love draws attention to the Spirit of Aloha and all its principles as the answer to the issues on our planet.
