Gerard Powell (Keahipio’ole), is his Hawaiian name but you can call him, "G." He is a chaplain, an independent Christian songwriter and musician. He received his master's degree in Business Administration and is a member of the American Society of Composers, Authors & Publishers (ASCAP). 
                      In 2002, Gerard wrote a book entitled "Percussion in the Context of Worship" where he explains the role of a percussionist and how percussive instruments are used during church worship service.
                      In 2006, he released his first CD entitled "Rather Be A Doorkeeper" which features ten original songs. The CD has been described as an adventure in relaxing comfortable easy listening music with a feeling of peaceful and spiritual surrender. It is a collection of eclectic music, which reflects Gerard through his music to his Lord Jesus Christ. 
                     In 2013, he released his second CD entitled "Thank You Lord." This CD features him playing the baritone ukulele and percussion on nine original Hawaiian Island style songs and the tenth song on the CD includes the hymn Amazing Grace that he performed as an instrumental.

                    In 2017, he released his third CD entitled "Island Style Christian Music." This CD is a solo two (2) disc project. It has 26 songs consisting of original songs and traditional hymns that took twenty-two (22) months in the making. The Lord blessed Gerard to play, sing, record, mix, and master all the instruments you hear on each song and features his baritone ukulele.  
As a one-man band, his music consists of prerecorded original praise, worship and traditional Hymns from his CD’s written produced and arranged by him, performed island style using his baritone ukulele. 

His music has received airplay on over 400 Internet Christian and gospel radio stations across the nation, in the United Kingdom, Asia and Europe. 

His music is registered with Christian Copyright Licensing International (CCLI) and is available for download purchase on this and other familiar music sites. 

He is available for local, regional, national and international venues.
