Born and raised on the island of Oahu, singer/songwriter Blayne Asing began playing ukulele at age eight; singing in the Kamehameha Schools Children’s Chorus at age nine; playing guitar at age 14; and playing percussion in the Kamehameha Schools marching, concert, and pep bands at age 12. Although he grew up loving the music of popular Hawaii artists, his own music is heavily influenced by country and folk music artists such as James Taylor and Jackson Browne. In addition to his expertise in playing a variety of instruments, Asing is a prolific songwriter. His original songs range from country/folk to Hawaiian and island music, but he also loves performing the music of his favorite Hawaiian legends. He released his debut album “Young, Old Soul” in 2015, which earned him the 2016 Na Hoku Hanohano Award (Hawaii’s GRAMMY® Award) for Most Promising Artist.
