Steeped in the Hawaiian reggae roots scene, the Green is the first to bring the so-called "Jawaiian" style into the national consciousness. The Green are based in Honolulu and are one of the best examples of that location's reggae sound. This four-man reggae outfit would release their self-titled first album to great critical acclaim – their debut effort would be chosen as the Best Reggae Album by online listeners in 2010. The Green would first come together in 2009 in Oahu. The Hawaiian music scene is a tight-knit one, and the group would begin as a way for six local musicians to come together to record and have some fun. The Green has its roots in Next Generation, a band formed by cousins JP Kennedy and Caleb Keolanui. After putting their first effort to rest, Keolanui and Kennedy would team up with Zion Thompson and Ikaika Antone to form a new outfit called the Green. Not only would their debut album The Green be a favorite of their online audience, it would be institutionally recognized in 2011 as the Best Reggae Album by the Na Hoku Hanohano Awards of their native fiftieth state. Following the success of The Green, the Easy Star label would release their sophomore Ways & Means and the EP Love & Affection the following year.
Danny Kalb, who has worked with surf rocker Jack Johnson, would help produce the Green's well-aged third album, Hawai'i '13, in 2013. This incredible album uses a chant by way of introduction. Chanting is an ancient element of Hawaiian culture and indicates the beginning of something important. A chant solicits guidance, knowledge, and blessings so that the following effort can be a righteous one.
While the band is ecstatic to be bringing Hawaiian reggae to a wider audience, they are highly cognizant of the challenges of mainstream success. While mainland Americans may be well accustomed to traveling from state to state on their tours, this endeavor is a much greater challenge for a band from a small South Pacific island. The Green's 2013 single "Something About It" addresses the pull between a beloved home territory and the demands of a successful musical career.
For three years running, the Green would float at the top of the charts with their warm and burnished Hawaiian sound. Their 2011 release, Ways & Means, would top Billboard magazine's reggae chart. This sophomore album would have the Easy Star label pedigree, and its polished mix of old and new reggae styles would work together beautifully. Caleb Keolanui's crisp vocals and modern, sophisticated touches would establish the Green as one of Hawaii's best reggae groups. Later that year, the Love & Affection EP would rise to number two, while Ways & Means would remain at the top of the reggae albums chart for the next two years.
2013 would see another number one album from the Green entitled Hawai'i '13. The group's Margaritaville punk would have clearly matured, and it brought together the best of 'seventies funk, Israel Kamakawiwo'ole, Cheech & Chong, Jerry Garcia, Gwen Stefani, and Jimmy Buffett. The tight, four-part vocal harmonies would be as scintillating as ever, while Keolanui's vocals would be even more impressive with their range of styles from majestically soaring to peppy dancehall. This impressive fourth release would remain at number one until 2014.
The Green's latest and hotly anticipated tour has been christened the "Chocolate & Roses Tour 2015", after their sultry, John Mayer-esque track from their latest number one hit reggae album, Hawai'i '13.
