Follow Me On My Musical Journey
It all started when I was introduced to the ukulele at a young age..
Like most kids growing up in Hawaii Karlie was introduced to the ukulele at a young age and quickly fell in love with the little four-stringed instrument, since then now at the age of 17 Karlie has won numerous ukulele/vocal competitions such as the prestigious Ukulele International Contest, Duke’s Ukes, and the 2015 Brown Bags to Stardom.
Karlie has also been credited for her songwriting, winning the Hawaii Book & Music Festival’s Songwriting Competition and a semifinalist for the 2018 International Songwriting Competition.
Karlie performs a wide range of genres such as traditional/contemporary Hawaiian, Pop, R&B, and Japanese which can be viewed on her YouTube channel. Karlie’s unique soulful voice surprises many the first time they hear her.

Latest release "Have Fun" now available
A little bit about my CD – “Have Fun” is a collection of songs that I’ve been working on through the years. All original and self-produced music! I would consider the genre as R&B, but there are shades of Island and POP.
Fun Fact – most of the ideas were initially written on my phone using the garageband app. Most of the tracks include the ukulele. I recorded and mixed them all in my bedroom.
Kickstarter – this CD would not have been possible without the support from my backers at the crowdfunding site kickstarter.com I really, really appreciate everyone for supporting and believing in me!
