Suginami, Tokyo, Japan (1981 – present)
Born in Tokyo to a Japanese father and Swedish mother. Educated at SOAS and Oxford. Settled in Tokyo in July 2006 to launch music career with debut album ‘City Folk’. Showcasing a variety of styles from heart-rending killer-tunes to angular rap, he not only represents a new style of singer-songwriter in J-Pop, but his blend of lyrical passion and austerity of design may mark something new for the world at large.
