Biography

(This is an incorrect tag for the artist Akeboshi, as he releases under his stage name Akeboshi, written in Roman characters, not Japanese kanji)

Yoshino Akeboshi (Akeboshi) is a male Japanese popular music singer. He is mostly known for the song Wind , used as the ending theme to the anime Naruto for the first twenty-five episodes.

Akeboshi was born in 1978 in Yokohama. He learned to play the piano when he was three years old. After that, he also learned to play the guitar. Akeboshi studied music in Liverpool. His time in England has influenced his music a lot.

Akeboshi’s songs are mainly sung in Japanese, but there are some notable songs that are sung in English, such as Night and day , ‘Money’, and Wind . Another remarkable thing about Akeboshi’s music is that he rarely uses the basic 4/4 time measure. Wind and ‘Kamisama no Shitauchi’ for example, are both written in 5/8

    ARRRG last.fm keeps directing my correctly tagged files here for some reason!!! and then writes the title in romaji (example "AKEBOSHi - 秋風のうた" became "明星 - Akikaze Uta") What's going on? The auto-correction star did not even show up beside it. When the song was playing it was alright, but when it was processed it messed up...geez!!

    because these are the japanese characters for his name, however it is the wrong artist tag because he releases his songs under the name Akeboshi written in roman letters. [2x]

    Akeboshi is by far the best underground Japanese artist around...hands down...wind is the best song in his arsenal..

    I can't get enough of Akeboshi... there's just so much beyond Wind. Kamisama no shitauchi, Akikaze no uta, & No Wish are my favorites.
