Paul Shimomoto​

Magic Beside The Sea (2004)

Sentimental Alibi (2008)

All That Hawaiian Jazz (2010)

Paul's second recording landed him the Hawaii Music Award for Best Contemporary Hawaiian CD of the Year in 2008.


This recording introduces the listening audience to Paul's unique style of Hawaiian Jazz - a sophisticated concoction of hapa haole songs and jazz standards.



The Music

Paul's third recording garnered the Hawaii Music Award for Best Jazz Album of the Year in 2010 and was a finalist for Jazz Album of the Year at the prestigious Na Hoku Hanohano Awards. 


This recording carries forward Paul's smooth Hawaiian Jazz arrangements and vocal stylings with a blend of island classics, latin melodies and jazz standards.

Paul's debut CD recording was the result of his winning the 2003 Hapa Haole Vocal Competition held at the historic Monarch Room of the Royal Hawaiian Hotel.


Included on this recording are classic hapa haole songs (songs about Hawaii written in English) that evoke memories of Hawaii's Golden Era of Entertainment.
