2018 Na Hoku Hanohano Winner:
Proud as the Sun is Kimie Miner's follow up to her award winning self-titled debut album. She describes the theme of the album as "the theme of air, a bird's eye view of everything, the idea of a new and broader perspective, growth, becoming more independent." The music in this album features contemporary pop with elements from other genres including R&B, Hawaiian, Jazz, and more. You'll love the upbeat and cheerful "Bamboo", the hauntingly beautiful "Proud as the Sun", or a unique take on the song "Sea of Love."
