The relaxed, happy, and beautiful music of Hawaii touched a spot in his heart and soul and rekindled his love for playing. Lenn has studied with Hawaiian recording artists Steven Espaniola, and Bryan Tolentino. Lenn’s playing is influenced by a diverse group of artists including Kuana Torres Kahele, Israel Kamakawiwo’ole, Troy Fernandez, Aunty Genoa Keawe, Bryan Tolentino, Steven Espaniola, and more. By day, Lenn works as an executive coach working with leaders in tech companies. He and his wife Rachel, and son Jet live in Kill Devil Hills.
