Among the 34th annual Nā Hōkū Hanohano nominees are Honolulu’s Music and Entertainment Learning Experience students Glenn Molina and Steven Lynch and MELE Instructor Eric Lagrimas.

“It is an extreme honor to be nominated and recognized within Hawaiʻi’s music community, but it is equally exciting to have two of our very own students being recognized for their work. Glenn and Steven are perfect examples of local talent who are putting Hawaiʻi on the international music map,” says Lagrimas.

Molina is currently studying music business and Lynch is studying audio engineering. They are business partners who formed their own record label, Ignoble Records. The duo produced the album Amplify that is nominated for Compilation of Year.

Lagrimas, MELE music business instructor, has his own record label, Pass Out Records, that has released numerous Hōkū nominated albums and is the drummer for the popular ska punk band PIMPBOT. Lagrimas produced the album, Abe Lagrimas, Jr. and Friends-Solo Ukulele: The King of Pop that is nominated for Extended Play Release of the Year.

The Nā Hōkū Hanohano awards will be held on May 29 the Hawaiʻi Convention Center.
