I love the songwriting and the storytelling. Keep telling the stories!
Great songs, just great songs!
—Booker T. Jones
An amazing voice.
Ron Artis II has been Hawaii’s best-kept secret for years, and now the singer-songwriter is making big waves on the mainland and beyond. Raised in Oahu, Artis plays music from his heart and soul, crystallizing the full range of his influences—deep Delta blues, gospel, soul, and R&B—into a tight collection of timeless-sounding songs that are at once fresh and familiar.
Artis developed his multi-instrumental prowess playing in the Artis Family Band, but he took to piano and guitar as his main modes of expression. Noted musicians such as Mick Fleetwood, Jack Johnson, and Jake Shimabukuro have recognized Artis’s incredible talent, and he has played with all of them and more in Hawaii’s most prestigious venues.
