Hanalei is an indie rock/folk band from the Chicago area, and Bay Area in California.[1] Brian Moss heads the band along with Pete Croke and others from bands such as The Pines. Moss a singer/songwriter from the Bay Area (San Francisco) who later moved to Chicago and back again; his previous bands include Great Apes, The Ghost and The Wunder Years.[2][3] Hanalei began as a solo project of Brian Moss after The Ghost broke up,[4] and after one release entitled "We Are All Natural Disasters", Hanalei became a four-piece band, moving away from Postal Service-esque sound [citation needed], and becoming a folky-earthy [clarification needed] sounding band.
