For his provocative and inspiring letter of hope,
determination and resilience. Thanks for your courage and
support! -Scott Katsura
Recently I had the opportunity to browse your website. I
was so impressed I wrote an editorial that I hope to be
distributing to anyone who will listen. Your music is inspiring
and needs to be heard. I've sent the editorial to you. Good
luck and thanks!
Do you remember the Latin invasion? How about you older
folks out there? What was your answer to the question: “Will
rap last?” There are many other questions that arise
anytime an art form is said to represent an ethnic culture
and community including the question: "Will their own
community accept and support them?” Given the opportunity
to do so, it is a fact that they will, indeed, especially
if the art form moves them in a strong way. So you've got
to have a good product and the larger the ethnicity and
culture you're representing, the more guaranteed support
you'll have. Isn't it a wonder then, that the largest ethnicity
in the world has only William Hung to show for it in the
American recording industry? It's not like thousands of
talented and promising Asian American artists aren't trying,
but the recording industry has failed them and all of us
by judging them based on their ethnic appearance, and terrible
lack of confidence in the American public to embrace yet
another culture into the great melting pot that makes America
the greatest country in the world. So we ask, why? Who is
responsible for this terrible exclusion and tragic insult
to the American people? Would you believe they're doing
it to themselves. Many of the recording industry's top people,
the ones who make the 'big decisions' are of Asian descent.
They have no confidence in their own culture and no respect
for their own community. They have even less respect for
the American listening public, thinking them incapable of
listening without prejudice. But the greatest insult of
all is letting a joke like William Hung and believe me he's
popular because it's funny, represent your entire culture
and community in the American recording industry. What a
shame. So what can America do about this? How can we right
this terrible wrong? How do we show the world that we can
listen without prejudice? I recently had the opportunity
to browse a website for an Asian American recording artist
named Scott Katsura (scottkatsura.com). Not only did I find
one of the best websites on the net, I was also treated
to an extraordinary musical experience. The site was also
impressive, in that it supported other Asian American artists.
It also supported humanitarian causes that affect all Americans
and people worldwide. I was so moved by the music and the
cultural experience that I bought his new album "Aloha
Miles Away". If you can't get to Hawaii any time soon
this album will take you there whenever you want. I felt
like I was on a beach in paradise. The album even has a
track that's in Japanese and is absolutely beautiful. Several
tracks have hit potential and it is you, America, that needs
to decide for yourselves instead of letting the music industry
decide for you. With such a talented artist producing culturally
significant and quality material that is worth supporting
and sharing with the world, are we going to let the American
Recording companies tell us that the only Asian American
recording artist worth supporting is William Hung? Support
Scott Katsura. At least he has something to say and he sounds
great singing it.

i n t e r n a t i o n a l
distinguishes Scott Katsura from many others who sing music of
Hawaii is his sense of engagement. Instead of treating traditional
songs as artifacts, he breathes new life into the music with caressing
vocals and original lyrics and melodies. In the main theme song
Aloha Miles Away as well as My Hawaii and Flower Lei you can feel
the love Scott has for his land, his people and his culture. Scott's
engaging, mesmeric voice is a joy, and his ensemble knows how
to complement it.
Aloha, I just wanted
to let you know that I just heard your song, "Aloha Miles
Away" on alohajoe.com and it's a great song. I hope to buy
your album soon! Mahalo for the great music!
Scott on your award. I have read about you on KathyBoast.com,
and then that prompted me to look everywhere else I can for more
information about you. My mom, Lydia and I will be there
for the Hawaiian Music Awards, and we are daily listeners of Aloha
Joe. We both are looking forward to meeting you, getting
a CD, an autograph, and hopefully you'll have the time to get
a picture with us. Big congratulations for sharing your
talent with everyone, and your Aloha spirit shines through in

Dear Scott, I've never heard a cd with so many great
tracks! What a ride. It goes from hip hop to dance to beautiful
ballads. Then it rocks you out and then deposits you on a beautiful
beach in paradise and then starts all over again. It even gives
you the most interesting christmas song I've ever heard. The use
of hawaiian language is beautiful and even the japanese song is
so cool. Thank you Scott, for trusting the world with your deep
emotion, introspective lyrics, and fantastic music!
Aloha Scott! I listen to your songs at Radio Indy - I
like "I Hear You" very, very much. Are you singing about
one person in particular or just people in general? Also, I'd
like to learn the Shakahula dance! Do you sell an instructional
video? If not, you should. Shakahula is a fun song to dance to!
Please write me if you can.
Your fan, Heinrich

Hello Scott, I learned about you at Artist Launch. I
am a product of divorced parents, recently seperated from my boyfriend
and enstranged from my only sibling. Your song "I Hear You"
makes me feel like you're talking directly to me! Thanks for the
comfort and understanding! Your music inspires me to go on with
my head held high! Best wishes and I hope to hear more from you
and "Aloha Miles Away". You gotta be strong when your
heart is true...
Love and Happiness, Greta
