Born and raised on Oahu, Micah Ganiron, age 25, always dreamed of making an album that featured his voice and his love of the ukulele. He started playing the ukulele when he got his first ukulele from his grandma at the age of eight. He soon started taking lessons from Jake and Bruce Shimabukuro. More recently he started singing lessons from vocalist Cat Wong. During this project, he performed in an ukulele trio called Heart & Soul. While Heart & Soul features an electrifying ukulele instrumental genre, Micah wanted to start a project that features his love for island reggae music, while still incorporating his love of the ukulele. Kanile’a Ukulele, has supported his music career over the years and helped him every step of his solo journey. Micah has been working with the great performer and producer, Kapena Delima of Bu Print Studios, to create his new brand of music.
