      Yoza, superstar artist, I love her music, she was great. Your audio was not great but passable. Your video was a nightmare. The video was lagging the whole time, the audio and video cut in and out a couple of times so I didn't get to see her whole performance. It also wouldn't hurt to do something with the studio, it looked like she was playing in a bedroom or something... So the best thing about this webcast was the artist herself. I will give you this much though, I think this is a great idea. If you work out the bugs this could be huge. So for these facts I have to give you 2 stars but this has the potential of someday being a 10 star idea.

Bio

Yoza took to music early, learning to play the ukulele at age 5. By the time she turned 10 years old, she performed with world renowned ukulele master, Roy Sakuma, as a “Super Keiki.” Not being bound by one instrument, she then began playing the saxophone at age 12 with her school’s symphonic orchestra. The two years that followed were filled with many musical accolades as a saxophone player. ... more

Yoza took to music early, learning to play the ukulele at age 5. By the time she turned 10 years old, she performed with world renowned ukulele master, Roy Sakuma, as a “Super Keiki.” Not being bound by one instrument, she then began playing the saxophone at age 12 with her school’s symphonic orchestra. The two years that followed were filled with many musical accolades as a saxophone player. This included a position as first seat, first chair in the Hawai’i State Select Band, as well as Gold Medalist in both Solo and Ensemble. It was clear that she was becoming prolific in every aspect of her musical craft. Her accomplishments also led to her being offered a full musical scholarship to Hawai’i Pacific University.

Fast forward to the present… YOZA has turned acoustic music on its ear. With the fusion of Hip Hop, R&B and Latin influences, she has redefined the sound of “acoustic soul.” From her rich, palpable ballads to her show-stopping upbeat renditions, YOZA has been featured in many articles and television performances and interviews, including “Living Local”, “Pakele Live,” “Cool Corona Nights,” “HI Sessions,” “Real Word” magazine, “FLUX” magazine, Waikiki Magazine, Honolulu Star Bulletin, and “Local” Entertainment Magazine (where YOZA was featured on the cover).

YOZA performed at the Waikiki Shell in the Summer of 2012, with Matt Catingub and the Hawaii Symphony Orchestra. On July 4th, 2012, she headlined the Hilton Hawaiian Village’s Independence Day Fireworks show and concert extravaganza.

Yoza is now a Na Hoku Hanohano awards nominee for the 2014 R&B album of the year, as well as the prestigious Most Promising Artist of the Year.

Venues in Hawaii that Yoza has had residency include, but are not limited to Honolulu at Hard Rock Cafe Waikiki, RumFire at the Sheraton Waikiki, Mai Tai Bar Ala Moana, The Study at The Modern Honolulu, Apartme3nt and Dave & Busters. Yoza, currently residing in California has performed in Los Angeles venues including Hard Rock Hollywood, Hotel Cafe, The Charleston, and Room 5. She will also be performing live in California and at West Coast venues/shows as well as flying back to Hawaii for special concert engagements.
