"Salty Kisses" is Kawena Mechler's debut solo recording. Born and raised in Hawai'i, Kawena has always had a passion for music and Hawaiian culture. She originally started writing songs to express her creativity and to produce music that she wanted to listen to. That expression has led her to record "Salty Kisses," a CD that highlights her diverse songwriting skills and melodic voice.

"Salty Kisses," a 4-song EP CD, contains all original songs, three in English and one in the Hawaiian language. Kawena was supported on "Salty Kisses" by the performances of extremely gifted friends who helped to bring these songs to life.

Special guests on the CD include Grammy-nominated musician David "Chino" Montero, Rodney Bejer, Eric Folk and Shawn Livingston Moseley, each talented musicians who brought their performance abilities, arrangements and recording skills to the "Salty Kisses" project.

Kawena's journey began years ago when she started dancing hula. She is a professional dancer and has been performing with some of Hawai'i's top artists in Hawai'i and around the world. She currently teaches hula, and her company, Kahiapo Talent, is responsible for booking many talented artists and dancers from Hawai'i. She is also owner of Hula Baby Hawaii, a company that produces beautiful faux floral hairpieces. Kawena continues the process of songwriting for future recording projects.
