Introducing 'Home', the debut EP from Oahu-born soul singer and guitarist Nick Kurosawa.

Recorded in Honolulu in February 2018, 'Home' features Nick Kurosawa's timeless original songs and influential classics by Bobby Caldwell, Sam Cooke, and Kalapana.

'Home' stands as an inspired stepping stone for a young, bright artist like Nick Kurosawa who roots himself in tradition as he explores his own sound, searching for where his voice and spirit feel most at home.

For Aloha Got Soul, this debut represents another step forward in the label's continuing evolution to represent progressive and relatively unknown music of Hawai‘i ― regardless of generation or genre.

To bring the release full circle with the label's output to date, we tapped Kit Ebersbach to be our engineer, whose first sessions were playing piano on the Lemuria and Babadu LPs. Kit Ebersnach's first engineering project was Tender Leaf.

Recorded and Mixed by Kit Ebersbach and Max Ebersbach
at Pacific Music Productions on February 1, 2018.

Note: two takes of each song were recorded in the session, with vocals and acoustic guitar or hollow body electric guitar, live in the room.

1. Written by Sam Cooke
2., 3. and 6. Written by Nick Kurosawa
4. Written by Bobby Caldwell and Alfons Kettner
5. Written by Mackey Feary Jr. for Kalapana
