About Andrew:

Andrew Molina lives in Maui Hawaii and began playing the ukulele when he was 13 years old.

Inspired by his mentor and good friend Jake Shimabukuro, Andrew put all of his time and effort into his ukulele practicing tirelessly for hours on end.

He entered “Brown Bags to Stardom”, a statewide contest for high school students in 2009 and took home the 3rd place trophy in the variety category.

Now 23, Andrew released his first CD entitled “The Beginning” in 2013
on which he composed 8 of the 11 songs.
His CD was a finalist for “Ukulele Album of the Year”
in the 2014 “Na Hoku Hanohano" awards. Hawaii’s version of the Grammy Awards.

His love and passion for this very simple but unique instrument really shows in his playing.

One of the up and coming crop of talented young ukulele virtuosos, he is always trying to find a way to take the ukulele to the next level. His music is a mix of Hawaiian, pop, rock and a little bit of jazz.

Andrew hopes to travel outside of Hawaii and to share his music with people everywhere and to show them how versatile this humble little instrument can be and the different genres and styles of music that the ukulele can be used in.
