ABOUT HANAI

FABAWAYLGLiteMy name is Kris Lee-Scott, but my friends call me "Hanai", an affectionate Hawaiian nickname meaning 'adopted one'.

I was born in 1955 in Oakland CA as Kristina Mary Wolthuis, and attended local schools including Skyline High (with Tom Hanks).  With my family I traveled extensively to Canada and Europe, living during the summers on the California Coast at Stinson Beach which later became the basis for many natural ’soundscores’ in my albums.

Although never formally trained, I started playing piano at age 4, two hands by 6, memorizing the vocal score of Handel’s Messiah by 12.  At the same time, I began teaching myself multiple instruments, including 12-string and 6-string guitars, accordion, silver flute, pan flute and more.

In high school I was a member of a rock band, playing and singing contemporary hits of the 70’s.  While attending college I wrote a spoken vocal score, and co-wrote several original rock pieces in addition to playing in the jazz band.  In the 80’s I was invited to be a part of the well-known local group “MINDZEYE” and the all-girl band “AVATAR”,  playing live venues all over the California Bay Area, sharing the stage with Chris Isaac, Greg Kihn Band, and Ellen Degeneres. 

After moving to the Sierra Foothills in 1988, I founded a business called“Keyboard Kids” to teach children the fun and basic skills of playing music in a rock band setting.  I also began doing performances in Olde Coloma Theater, and Theatre El Dorado, even writing original melodrama to rave reviews.  In 1990 I was an extra in Paramount Pictures “Rescue Me” with Michael Dudicoff. 

1991 brought another move...this time to Salt Lake City, UT.    After losing my treasured kitty Kea, I was inspired to compose 11 original instrumental 'soundscapes' which were released in Nov 1993. These beautiful songs were the beginning of "Hanai Music".

Another transfer brought me to Madison, WI where I became a partner in "Wisconsin Therapy Center" as a Certified Clinical HypnoTherapist. This valuable training has created several Deep Process self-help programs from EZ Sleep to Healing Meditations. In addition I began setting up Hanai Music 'stores' at many locations, gathering over 10,000 enthusiastic and loyal fans in the Midwest.

Today I'm based in Florida, attend many artisian markets, trade shows, and health expos with my music. As of 2009, I have sold over 75,000 CDs and cassettes all over the world, appeared on TV and radio shows, and been written up in many newspapers.

I am so thrilled that so many people have been helped and encouraged by my songs...Feel free to pass it on to anyone you know that might appreciate it. Many Blessings, Hanai
