"It's Just Me"
It has been six years since making his debut onto Hawai'i's music scene;
A family man
and kanikapila phenom, John Feary, encapsulates what we in Hawaii know as a unique
style of music best heard out of Palolo Valley. Re-emerging with his second album,
It's Just Me, John offers an intimate glimpse into his laid back style of living, and
a sampling of songs that have serenaded him over his six-year hiatus.
John Feary is no stranger to the stage or its spotlight;
he is the nephew of one
of Hawai'i's most beloved musical sons, the late, great Mackey Feary. Quietly working
to build his own legacy, John sets off on this renewed musical journey, armed only
with his voice, his humility, and his ukulele, adorned with the image of his mentor,
Hawaiian music icon Moe Keale.
It's Just Me welcomes a who's who of special
guests, and provides the ideal
backdrop for every occasion. From the contemporary island remake of "Moon and Stars"
where he welcomes a guest appearance by Kalapana's Malani Bilyeu to classic renditions
of "Tonight's the Night" and "Late Night Mama", John Feary's album sails from track to track
with ease. Featuring original tracks by himself, Producer Alden Levi, and Guy Cruz, John's
only goal with this album is to bring happiness to those who listen.
It's Just Me represents a gift to the listener featuring Alden Levi's well-orchestrated
acoustic themed music bed overlaid by John Feary's distinctly passionate vocal
performances. An honest, new beginning to a familiar name, John Feary hopes
that this will lay the groundwork for his stake in Hawai'i's music industry.
