I discovered Kaleo on my Sawyer Fredericks Pandora station.
This really beautiful, haunting song came on and I looked over to see who it was. Being born and raised in Hawaii, I recognized the name of the band being Hawaiian but not the name of the song -- "Vor í Vaglaskógi" . And that was it. After Googling away a bit, I was pretty much instantaneously hooked.
I realized Kaleo had no fan sites. Being on #TeamSawyer, i knew the power of the FANDOM.
i remember when i posted my first few photos on IG though, and a few very vocal haters cussed me out, claiming i wasn't a "real" fan because i didn't have any pictures with the band, claiming i stole pictures, saying i was a fake, spamming my feed, and calling me extraordinarily hateful names. and then they tried deleting their comments and blocking themselves so it couldn't be traced back to them.
those users are actually the real inspiration for this fansite, and i've kept a screenshot of those comments to remind me of what i NEVER want anyone to feel. i never want anyone to feel unwelcome because they liked first what you like now. sorry, kaleo's about to blow up and you won't be the only superfan anymore.
so this first post goes out to all the haters, because the fans are just going to keep on coming.
take me where the wheels take me!
