The Green (formed in 2009) is an American traditional Hawaiian and reggae group hailing from Oahu, Hawaii, in the U.S.

Formed as a cathartic and enjoyable exercise for members of Hawaii’s tight-kit music scene, The Green is comprised of lead vocalist Caleb Keolanui, vocalist and keyboardist Ikaika Antone, vocalists and guitarists JP Kennedy and Zion Thompson, bassist and keyboardist Brad “BW” Watanabe, and drummer Jordan Espinoza.

Before very long at all the group recorded and released their eponymously-titled debut album and became iTunes Best Reggae Album of the Year for 2010. The single “Love I” became the breakthrough single in Hawaii and the success of the album led to an extensive touring schedule in mainland U.S. including shows at Vans Warped Tour, Wakarusa and California Roots Festival. The band’s touring style and approach became notoriously light-hearted and the group openly shared their Aloha spirit.

The band’s sophomore album titled “Ways & Means” was released in 2011 to much the same critical and popular response as the first; remaining at the top of the Billboard Reggae chart for four weeks and winning the award for Best Reggae Album at Hawaii’s 2011 Na Hoku Hanohano Awards. Released through Easy Star Records, the album cemented the group’s position as leaders of contemporary reggae and paved the way for The Green’s third album “Hawai’i ’13”.

Released in 2013, “Hawai’i ’13” was produced by esteemed producer Danny Kalb, known for his work with Ben Harper, Beck and Jack Johnson, and utilised the songwriting abilities of all the bands’ members. Featuring the singles “Striking Up A Love”, “Good One” and “Power in the Words”, similar to its predecessor “Hawai’i ‘13” topped the Billboard Reggae Chart and was followed by an intense period of touring.
