I have been running into this tall good looking Black man for a while in the little community of Long Beach. I would see him with this little case and wonder. One day, Zachary Carlisle and I was rolling on the Blue Line heading inbound to downtown Long Beach, California. Zachary is a local Long Beach singer/songwriter playing the Ukulele and Guitar. Ukulele is eclectic as you can get as he sung on the south bound train and I had to bring him to Hotwordz Lyrical Theatre.He recently joined his friends & created the band, ‘Hopeless Romantics’. Zachary Carlisle~ “I’m both a visual and performing artist with a message of love and inter-connectivity.” He is a conscious artist and is in tune with the wave of ECLECTIC SOUL hitting a positive energy in this wonderful multi-verse.
I searched a little bit and found Oscar Jordan who sparked the essence of this eclectic soul in 2004. After visiting Amazon, HLT will reintroduce you to the world of this genre ‘Eclectic Soul'.
HOTdrop~ Being at the wrong place (LAX) at the right time gave me a chance meeting with Val Richardson. A wonderful singer from North Carolina.

Today on the BeachLifestyle Radio Show, Host Neil Haley will interview Multi-Grammy Award Winner! Welcome Daniel Ho to the show!
Daniel Ho's simple philosophy of presenting music with sincerity and artistry encompasses six consecutive GRAMMY Awards, number-one albums on national airplay charts, and top-ten albums on Billboard. In 2010, his solo 'ukulele CD, Polani (Pure), was the first 'ukulele album in music history to receive a GRAMMY nomination. On piano the following year, he received a nomination for Best Pop Instrumental Album for his CD, E Kahe Malie (Flowing Gently).
A Honolulu native, Daniel started music lessons at an early age and spent his teenage years orchestrating big band arrangements. At the Grove School of Music in Los Angeles, he excelled in composition and film scoring. He was the leader and keyboardist of the acclaimed '90s contemporary jazz band, Kilauea.
Daniel performs original songs in English and Hawaiian that feature his versatility on 'ukulele, slack key guitar, and piano. Notable credits include singing Prince's Nothing Compares 2 U in Hawaiian for the feature film "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" (2008), and his widely covered `ukulele instrumental anthem, Pineapple Mango. As an independent record company owner, he pursues excellence in composition, performance, audio engineering, and production. Ever the innovator, Daniel's custom six-string KoAloha 'ukulele, the D-VI, is currently on exhibit at the GRAMMY Museum.
Deardra Shuler interviews singer Rachel Brown, an Ethiopian/Bermudian with southern roots, whose voice reveals a sultriness and sweetness that has captivated listeners. A musician who plays the guitar and ukulele, Rachel embodies with her African/Caribbean band, the genres of pop, Caribbean, Hawaiian, country, hip-hop and world sounds into a captivating groove.
At 19, with no formal musical training, Brown found her voice organically. “My songwriting process consists of grabbing my guitar and learning how to play it while I write songs,” says Brown. “I just play until it sounds right.”
Brown was the 2010 recipient of the prestigious ASCAP Foundation Robert Allen Award for songwriting as well as a 2011 recipient of the Songwriter’s Hall of Fame Abe Olman Award for Excellence in Songwriting. She also received a very coveted showcase slot at the National Association for Campus Activities’ national convention, leading to a 40 date college tour.
The Harvard graduate has been featured by the New York Post and PerezHilton.com and has opened for the likes of Mary J. Blige and Robin Thicke at Bermuda’s National Stadium, and John Legend and Quincy Jones at the Bermuda Music Festival.
Brown’s music also caught the ear of Wyclef Jean who brought her up on stage to perform an impromptu duet of Bob Marley’s “Redemption Song” at a fundraiser held at New York’s legendary Cipriani 42 Street. Recently Jean joined Brown onstage at her residency at NYC’s famed supper club, The Darby.
Be sure to catch Brown’s debut EP “Building Castles” which is available now.
