As if that weren’t enough, Inglis has won a number of music awards, with his most recent win being the 2013 Nā Hoku Hanohano Award for Hip Hop Album of the Year for “Evasive Species: Live at Soulsound“.

monoblogue music: “Learning You By Heart”

SEPTEMBER 12, 2015 · POSTED IN MUSIC REVIEWS via monoblogue music: Have you ever heard of Hawaiian Slack Key guitar? Me neither, but Stephen Inglis has been playing it for years and his talents are featured on his latest collection, which came out in June. So I was interested in not just listening to the album but learning a little bit more about the difference between the old standard guitar and Hawaiian Slack Key. Long story short, it began when the guitar was introduced to the islands in the 19th century and involves loosening the strings to create different chord patterns and a unique technique of playing, rather than the standard blues-based progression. The genre seems to have a devoted fan base, though. Later this month Inglis will be playing Tokyo at a festival featuring the

Stephen Inglis’s ‘Learning You By Heart’ is a timeless ode to yesterday

Article By: MacEagon Voyce at AXS Contributor Sep 16, 2015 Stephen Inglis Stephen Inglis is a grammy-nominated Hawaiian slack-key guitarist, which is a style that involves adding slack to some of the guitar strings until the open strings create a single chord (usually G-Major). For those that can’t relate to that because they don’t follow Hawaiian slack-key guitar awards (a questionable life choice), he’s also opened for Sublime and he once formed a band with legendary Grateful Dead drummer Bill Kreutzmann. Inglis reps the Hawaiian musical tradition in several capacities, but his singer-songwriter persona is probably the most accessible. In June, the guitarist released his fourth album of this ilk, Learning You By Heart, and it is especially Dead-like. Throughout Learning You By

New LP from Hawaiian Slack guitarist Stephen Inglis

Adequacy.net September 17, 2015 by Jen Dan Grammy-nominated, Honolulu-based,  Hawaiian Slack key guitarist Stephen Inglis has a recent album out now titled Learning You By Heart and it’s a a deeply emotional masterwork. This latest effort is reminiscent of the Grateful Dead (whose drummer he started a band with) or even the legendary Townes Van Zandt. The power of Inglis’s music is apparent, even from the first track, and his latest album is engaging and full of interesting musical twists and turns.  Having toured with all sorts of legendary musicians like Rev. Dennis Kamakahi and Bill Kreutzmann of the Grateful Dead it’s clear that he’s learned from the best. Inglis is a versatile artist. He crosses genres, yet his music always radiates integrity.  Along with his strong respect for
