Highlights

“He brings to traditional blues a Polynesian touch that makes classic songs stand out.” - LiveMint

“It has a strong blues underpinning and excellent vocals.” -Bman’s Blues Report

“The biggest surprise about this wonderful album by Honolulu-based Samoan singer-musician Taumei “Big John” Akapo is what you’re NOT getting. Akapo’s not strumming a ukulele and — though it’s possible he might have been wearing a Hawaiian shirt and a lei in the studio while recording this — he’s not performing airy, traditional soft island music.”-The Blade
