|Hawaii: Part II|
|Released||December 12, 2012|
|Producer||Ross Federman, Joe Hawley, Bora Karaca|
The album began to come together immediately following the beginning of Tally Hall's hiatus in fall 2011. Joe worked closely with his co-producers Ross Federman and Bora Karaca, and recruited additional contributors from across the country to collaborate on the project.
Some of the songs derived from demos Joe had accumulated from as early as 2005, but others were written specifically for the project.
The project is described as "Genre of infinity, which is expressed through hologram," and features themes of outer space, ancient mysticism, tropical paradise, parallel universes, love, death, and magic.
Vocalists and contributors to the album include Rob Cantor, Zubin Sedghi, Madi Diaz, Stephanie Koenig, Cyndi Lynott, Ashley Renee, Charlene Kaye, Shane Maux, Alison Hanna, Andrew Laurich, and Ryan Brady.
