“I am so excited for people to hear the new album,” said Tavana. “I really poured my heart and soul into every song on this album. The process was incredibly fulfilling to me, and I hope listeners get something out of it, especially during these uncertain times.”

Sway will follow up Tavana’s fourth album Aloha Spirit which was nominated for a Nā Hōkū Hanohano Award for Best Contemporary Album of the Year in 2017. Stand out tracks on the new album include “True,” bringing Tavana and Mike Love together for an intimate anthem about love and vulnerability, as well as title-track “Sway” featuring Tavana’s classic soulful sound with acoustic elements.
