Island music has come a long way. I’m referring to the Hawaiian sound, which has been transformed in pop culture with the rise of Colbie Cailatt and Jack Johnson. Transcending the essential reggae styles of Bob Marley, international recording artist iakopo blends an R&B sound with acoustic guitar songwriting. The result is a fluid, well-rounded sound that continues to grow the reach of the cross-genre musical style similar to Sublime with a more rhythm-and-blues-feel. Plus, how could you not love the ambiance of an island love tune? iakopo’s career began in 2006 (formerly under the name Keys of Creation) and has taken him around the world. His latest single is One Forever, a love song at heart crafted around an alternative-R&B style. By D Grant Smith
