Colorado’s Sheryl Renee is now Maui’s Sheryl Renee.  The adored singer who spent her career in the Denver area moved to Maui in 2022 after a life change.  The jazz scene on Maui was thriving until the fires of August 2023 destroyed many lives and performance venues.  The recovery is expected to take years, but part of the healing process is music.  Sheryl Renee talks with KUVO’s Steve Chavis about current conditions and needs.

To help with the ongoing and long term recovery, Sheryl Renee recommends the following websites: This well-established jazz education and performance charity has been training jazz students and producing events for decades.  Their “Save the Musicians” fund might be a nice way to support the music on the island. “Maui Strong” is the working title for the Hawai’i Community Foundation, considered the safest charitable contribution for recovery on the affected parts of Maui.
