Daniel Ho


From his modest upbringing in Honolulu to his soul searching in Los Angeles, Daniel has learned to wear many hats over the years—musician, producer, singer/songwriter, arranger, composer, engineer, record company owner—and has come to wear them well. The most befitting of these roles has been for his two Grammy Award achievements as a producer and featured slack key guitarist in the Best Hawaiian Music Album category.

From his modest upbringing in Honolulu to his soul searching in Los Angeles, Daniel has learned to wear many hats over the years—musician, producer, singer/songwriter, arranger, composer, engineer, record company owner—and has come to wear them well. The most befitting of these roles has been for his two Grammy Award achievements as a producer and featured slack key guitarist in the Best Hawaiian Music Album category. Daniel’s musical inclinations were apparent at an early age. His first instruments were organ and ‘ukulele, then he graduated to classical guitar and piano, electric guitar, bass, drums, and eventually, voice. He dreamt big and followed his aspirations.

This led him to study composing, arranging and film scoring at the Grove School of Music in Los Angeles. Shortly afterwards, he began his professional career as the leader, keyboardist, composer, and producer for Kilauea, a contemporary jazz group he formed in 1990. By 1997, Kilauea had released six chart-topping albums, two of which hit the Top 10 on Billboard’s jazz charts. As momentum of the smooth-jazz genre waned, Daniel set his sights on starting an independent record label. He longed for artistic freedom, a rare privilege in the music industry.

His interests in photography and graphic design complimented the built-in responsibilities of marketing and production. In 1998 he launched Daniel Ho Creations. It began as a vanity effort and consisted of his solo piano and Hawaiian slack key guitar recordings. Slowly, the releases grew into collaborative projects that featured Hawaiian hymns, hula, ‘ukulele, and slack key guitar music.

To date, Daniel Ho Creations has released over fifty acoustic and Hawaiian-themed CDs by many of Hawai‘i’s most respected artists, who are first and foremost, friends. Daniel has received numerous Hawaiian music industry accolades including three Na Hoku Hanohano awards and eight Hawai‘i Music Awards. In recent years, Daniel has been able to remain true to his craft and focus on what he loves most: the music. He is an accomplished singer and songwriter who has shared his music as a soloist throughout the U.S., Tasmania, Germany, and Japan. He has been featured with the Honolulu Symphony; toured as a keyboardist and guitarist for Grammy Award-winning vocalist, Peabo Bryson; guest-lectured at Stanford University; and authored instructional books on ‘ukulele and slack key guitar. Daniel is a Yamaha guitar artist and plays Koaloha ‘ukuleles.
