"For all of us, becoming indigenous to a place means living as if your children's future mattered, to take care of the land as if our lives, both material and spiritual, depended on it." - Robin Wall Kimmerer, Braiding Sweetgrass
TODAY is the DAY!
My nephew, Alex Aiono, was recently signed to Interscope Records and has just released his new single:
"Work The Middle"
His Interscope Artist Bio Page states:
"A 20-year-old singer/songwriter who plays a half-dozen instruments, Aiono’s first music industry connection was made while busking on the Santa Monica Promenade at age 15, and it didn’t take long before he was writing songs with the likes of John Legend. Newly signed to Interscope Records, and in the midst of recording his first full-length album, Alex Aiono is delivering his first official single that’s sure to expand his devoted following—a fanbase that already includes 4 million YouTube subscribers and fast approaching half a billion views, 1.7 million Instagram followers, and 400k+ Twitter followers. Beyond all of the millions of fans, more impressive is how engaged they are with every song, image and post, finding refuge in his alluring energy."
Ever since Alex was a little boy I remember him singing and thinking to myself how cool it was that he liked to sing at such a young age. Throughout the years, I've been privileged to see him develop as a singer, song writer, and performer. I've heard his voice mature and talent grow and seen his unrelenting drive to follow his dreams.
Alex is such a great example to our family of hard work and dedication.
I'm so grateful that my son is able to look up to his cousin and see a person full of kindness and willing to always share his talents.
I know that his Nana and Papa would be so proud of him!
WE LOVE YOU ALEX!
