California-born and Australian based roots artist and eco-educator Manoa combines uplifting reggae grooves and laid back folk melodies with soulful vocals and conscious lyrics.

Manoa released his new EP in April 2019 inspired by his deep love for the natural environment and sharing the story of an emergent regenerative culture empowering the earth and its people. He is currently touring the album throughout Australia, New Zealand and Europe.

His new single ‘Change Is In The Air’ (feat. Bobby Alu) embodies the message of personal and cultural transformation and the music video was shot live at Island Elements Festival and the Pacific Earth School on Stradbroke Island.


Manoa has played Splendour In The Grass (2016), Island Elements Festival (2018), Biophilia (2019 - NZ), Uplift Festival (2014), Nimbin Roots Festival (2016), O'Heart Festival (2017/18). Supports include Dustin Thomas (USA), Oka, Nicky Bomba and The Floating Bridges.
