Duncan Kamakana grew up on the island of Oahu in a family richly steeped in music, Hawaiian culture, intellectual stimulation and abundant love and creativity. In 2012, he scored a significant break by landing a Burger King commercial that featured a modified version of the hit song "Fish and Poi." It catapulted his career locally. While playing a gig at Rumfire in Waikiki that July, a prominent LA music supervisor recognized him from the commercial and helped him get a private audition for NBC's hit show "The Voice." Producers chose him out of 50,000 other contestants vying for the coveted opportunity. Maroon 5's Adam Levine chose Duncan for his team and coached him alongside the other finalists.

When asked how he would define his personal sound and genre, Moreno admits that he wants to break free of what “certain types of music are supposed to sound like.” He believes that no song should be performed the same way twice. Preferring to let the interplay between his emotions and the surrounding ambiance drive the sound of his music and performance in any given moment, Moreno views it as a constant process of creation between his voice and the energy of the space he is in.
Jegaan Singh Faye brings his blend of jazzy acoustic renditions, up-tempo funk and modern soulful crooning to The Study. In addition to his solo performances throughout Waikiki, Jegaan often performs with the Island Kings Band.
Sundays at The Study have become the place where musicians go to listen to music, largely thanks to Jeremy Cheng and the talent that seems to tag along with him wherever he goes. From the guys playing alongside him to the area musicians that congregate in the crowd, Sundays at the Study often become a Who’s Who Open Mic Night, only you have to be extremely talented to mix it up with Jeremy and his gang. After four hours of Jeremy's live music, a DJ will keep the good times going starting at 11 pm.
