Began supporting professional artists with recording and live performances during his teens, and sold out all tickets at his solo performances even before his debut. Made his debut from EPIC Records in 2005 with his 1st album “Sanctuary”. Became a hit, unusual for a newcomer doing instrumental music. Has actively performed live, showing off his versatility by incorporating musical ideas from various genres such as classical music and pops. Juxtaposed to most violinists today, he continues to mesmerize the audience.
Not only does he work with his own music, he has been involved in various recording sessions of many artists, supported Pornograffitti at live concerts, was the musical director for AI’s 10th anniversary concert at Budokan, made a guest appearance at former Takarazuka’s top star Sumire Haruno’s concert. For the drama “Nodame Cantabile”, he took part in the auditioning process for the Nodame Orchestra, performed for in-show rock violinist “Ryutaro Mine”, portrayed by Eita, and made an appearance in the show himself. He also provided songs for the show.
