Born in Machida, Tokyo – OLDE WORLDE is the solo project of multi-talented musician Sohhei Numata.
Debuting in November 2009, he released his 1st full album “Anemone “Whirlwind”” in April 2010.
With an incredibly unique voice which combines the innocent purity of a young boy with a more edgy, almost mad streak he mixes alternative and street culture with entertainment.
OLDE WORLDE received a great deal of attention because of its revolutionary new type of lo-fi sound which captures everything from alternative rock, folk to hip hop.
In the summer of 2010, he played at various events held in Japan such as SUMMER SONIC 2010.
In July 2011, he released the 2nd album “THE LEMON SHARK”.
His talent shines through on this second full length as Sohhei himself played almost all of the instruments featured on the record – Guitar, Bass, Drum, Ukulele, Piano, Keyboard, moog etc.
On top of that he himself took charge of the artwork which OLDE WORLDE drew for the self released album.
And, finally he was invited to play at FUJI ROCK FESTIVAL 2011.
