    Amy performed with Willie Kahaialii (Willie K) in the 1990s, and they were a hugely success duo. They broke up both personally and professionally in 2001 and Amy returned to performing solo, recording on her own label called Hanaialii. She toured with Willie K again in 2003 and they recorded another album together that was nominated for the first Hawaiian music Grammy award.
