Imua Garza featuring MOOSTR

Imua Garza is a vocalist, musician, producer, recording engineer and composer. He first appeared on a professionally released CD at the age of 11.  About this time Imua started playing in his first music group, the Opihi Pickers.  

Ten years, seven albums later, the Opihi Pickers have become one of Hawaii's most beloved bands with several #1 radio hits. Since that time Imua has become an accomplished producer, recording studio engineer and musical arranger and has appeared on hundreds of songs.

Some chart topping, award winning bands he's produced or worked with include Rebel Souljahz, Kolohe Kai, Kimie, Katchafire, Natural Vibrations, John Cruz, Streetlight Cadence, Weldon Kekauoha and Kuana Torres.

In 2009 his band "One Right Turn" was a part of SXSW in Austin, Texas and featured, as one of the top 10 must see bands out of 2000 bands. He's also shared the stage with Jack Johnson, John Cruz, Jake Shimabukuro to name a few.  

Today he works as the musical director for C4, Christ Centered Community Church, where he composes contemporary alternative and gospel songs.  

Although he's been known as an ukulele virtuoso in Hawaii, today he's taking on a more universal sound that is guitar driven and appealing to most ages.  His songs reflect that of real life stories, dreams and purpose.  His new band MOOSTR, with his wife Tiffany, recently released their debut album "Let's Go." 

Imua has traveled throughout the islands, mainland U.S., Guam, Taiwan, India and Japan where he has played before appreciative and enthusiastic audiences. 

Imua lives in Honolulu, HI with his wife Tiffany and three little keikis: Zeo, Zemmy and Zander.
