Stef Mariani, a Maui based folk artist and Nā Hōkū Award winning artist releases her latest single “Butterflies.”

“Butterflies” was co-written with Grammy Award Nominee Lonnie Park who also has vocals featured on the track. In addition, the track features Hawaiian Steele Guitarist Casey Olsen and is engineered by David Tucciarone.

In May of this year, Mariani’s most recent album Stay Gold received a Nā Hōkū Hanohano Award for best alternative album.

Stay Gold is a plea and a local movement to remain a good person in a hard world. To become better, not bitter and to exercise kindness daily like a muscle,” said Mariani.

Mariani has also released a short film entitled “Stay Gold -The Story of the Independent Artist” that is being considered as an entrant into the Sundance Film Festival.
