MEET THE TEAM
We're not a regular staff, we're a cool staff
Owner, Boss Lady
The heart (and brains) of the company, Tora Smart is a beautiful Jazz singer who has more musical ability than anyone else here. In 2017 she put out a lovely jazz record that she recorded with her father Noel Jewkes called The Carriage House Sessions. Give it a listen on Spotify, iTunes & Apple Music.
Owner, Boss Man (when he wants to be)
Kirk Smart is a multi-lingual/multi-instrumentalist/all around badass. The coolest, and the grooviest. Feel free to check out his website for more information on him, his experience, and his work: www.KirkSmart.com
Employee? (just here for snacks, really)
The young lad resides in Liverpool, England now but you may be greeted by his friendly face when he's home for the holidays (if you're lucky!) Eli makes Aloha Soul and he'd love for you to hear it. Give his music a listen on Spotify, iTunes & Apple Music. We're very proud!
Web Designer, Social Media Manager, Customer Service, Employee
Overall title: Director of Better. Our groovy, funky, freaky, knows-where-everything-is gal. We just love her. Yes, she is writing this, and no - did not run it by anyone first.
Group Lesson Teacher, Employee
Holly makes you feel at home here at Hanalei Strings and can get you playing the uke in just a few minutes. Customers always return asking for her but we try not to take it personally.
