Pat Simmons Jr
Pat Simmons Jr. is a singer/songwriter
raised on Maui, Hawai'i close to
remote valleys and waves.
"I like to say I'm a surfer by dawn,
father and a husband by day,
and a musician at night".
He has had a diverse life
growing up around the world
on tour with his father's band The Doobie Brothers,
yet remains a true Maui local at heart,
living on the family farm,
always carrying the message of Aloha 'Aina
(Love for the land).
Pat is on the board of directors for the
Hawai'i Farmer's Union United
Haleakala Chapter, and is part
of a conscious community
of islanders who care for the
natural environment through simple living.
This means having a positive impact
on the land and water
by growing food organically and
supporting regenerative agriculture
throughout the islands. Surviving cancer,
acquiring a degree in Ecology,
and raising a child on the same land
he was raised on in Maui
are all part of what has shaped
this young man's mission.
His music is like a lei of many flowers,
influenced by Hawai'ian musicians,
as well as those of his father's generation.
He has shared the stage with
The Doobie Brothers,
Chicago, Jack Johnson,
Willie Nelson, Micah & Lukas Nelson,
Trevor Hall, The Wailers,
Greg Allman & more.
Pat's debut 2017 album release
is entitled "This Mountain".
A folk-rock island blend featuring
award winning Hawai'ian artist Keali'i Reichel.
As well as local Hawai'ian bluesman Willie K.
Pat's father, founding member
of The Doobie Brothers,
co-produced the E.P. on Maui.
Other special featured artists include:
Elvin Bishop, the blues legend
Hutch Hutchinson, bass player for Bonnie Raitt
John McFee of The Doobie Brothers
Bill Payne, original pianist for Little Feat
John Cowan, from New Grass Revival

Rooted in the best
of country music traditions,
Matthew Human’s music is
about the simple life,
and what’s truly important –
healthy food, clean air and water,
true love, and community.
It’s that kind of hippie country rock
that you probably haven’t heard
since the early days of the Eagles.
From 2003 to 2012 Human toured with
his country-rock dance band,
“The Human Revolution” which became
one of the best-loved acts
on the West Coast festival circuit.
His 2007 award-winning
pro-hemp video “Tree of Life”
garnered over 600,000 views
on social media.
In 2009 he opened for
Willie Nelson’s Labor Day show,
and he has led three US-based tours in
support of GMO labeling initiatives,
including a 315-mile march from
Brooklyn NY to Washington DC
culminating outside the White House on
International Food Day in 2011.
He is also the Global Music Ambassador
for Food For Life Global,
the largest vegetarian
food relief program
in the world.
In 2014 Matthew Human joined
an elite group
of compassion-driven artists
when he performed for the inmates at
Folsom Prison in northern California.
For his eighth studio album,
a pop-country project
that breaks musical barriers
and brings fresh new energy
to the country world,
Matthew Human returns to his
Nashville, Tennessee roots.
Human currently divides his time
between touring and Costa Rica,
where he has built a simple
home and grows food on 80 acres
of cooperatively owned land.

Once upon a time,
people used to make moments..
with their hands.
Then man came and brought his technology,
killing the pixies and fairies.

of Handmade Moments so very nourishing,
so perfectly spiced?

long-simmering with righteous
compassion and beauty,

a fearless all-weather
duo - complementary spirits
of musical tightrope and magic -
serving up entrée to their
