Nick Kurosawa - Home (AGS-004) [2018 pressing]
Introducing 'Home', the debut EP from Oahu-born soul singer and guitarist Nick Kurosawa. Available on 12" vinyl and CD.
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 Ebersbach's first engineering project was Tender Leaf.
