An accomplished clarinetist and piano player, SHōTA’s sheer musicality manifested after to moving to Japan. He bought a guitar, taught himself how to play and started writing.
The initial focus was hip hop, but his sound evolved and grew into something altogether more multi-faceted-- songs about unrequited love, infatuation, bliss and heartbreak. His music boasts a rap-like lyrical feel and a classical attention to structure, with poignant pop hooks that shine through the pain and polarity of his lyrics.
SHōTA's most recent featured singles "Party Girl" (#1 on itunes Japan Dance chart) & "Time was on our side" with the The Golden Pony (Spotify Norway Viral Chart #3 / Taiwan Viral Chart #9) is now available on Spotify, iTunes and all other music platforms for streaming and purchase.
