Na Hoku Hanohano Nominated "Colour My Soul" is now up for Grammy Consideration.

"Bold new music! 
What appeals to me here is the style in voice modulation. It’s just the thing for songs that are actually telling a story, so evident on Colour My Soul, What I Need and Sad Boy. Maui song does have a touch of boldness added in. Guitars in the arrangement complement the vocals just like peas in the same pod. Bold, new music and it’s in a class of its own!" - 2015 Grammy Award Winning Composer Wouter Kellerman

"Stef has an amazing, emotive and mesmerizing voice that really brings a song alive. I had worked with Stef last year on a single and it was an amazing experience working with her voice. I have listened to Colour My Soul multiple times, and I love this recording. The whole album works together so cohesively, and every song is beautifully performed by not just Stef, but her entire band. I wish Stef all the best." - 2015 Grammy Award Winning Composer Ricky Kej
"Stef's new album glows with tenderness, romance, and depth of emotion..... This fantastic release makes her an artist to watch as her career continues to blossom with great promise." - 2014 Grammy Award Winning Artist/Pianist Laura Sullivan

“Colour My Soul” displays an artistry that is refreshingly honest and soulful.  Her passion comes through in spades in the songwriting and heart-felt vocal performances." -2014 Grammy Award Winning Singer/Songwriter/Producer Jennifer Gasoi
"Stef Mariani is music of the soul. She turns inside out when she perfoms for you. Her vulnerability is full and real on the microphone. She is a martyr for real artistry and story telling as a musician. There will never be another her." -Honolulu's Power 104.3 Morning Show Host & Recording Artist Tantra (Love's Heretic)

2015 Na Hoku Hanohano Awards

Stef Mariani is a Big Island Music Award Winner and a Two-Time Na Hoku Hanohano Award Nominee. This year she is back with her very personal followup record to "This Wave" entitled "Colour My Soul". This collection of original music is about the moment that the heart un-breaks. Here is her story:

"After living my life in black and white for a long stretch of time, someone picked up a six-string guitar one evening and started to play as I was falling asleep. Suddenly I felt the blood start to flow back into my face and through my body. For the first time in a long time I felt a stirring in my heart. I felt hope. These songs chronicle the events that led up to that moment. It is with great emotion that I present this work to you. Aloha Nui Loa from the Hawaiian Islands.
"
