In January 2007, Ryuji (Vo) formed ZORO with Taizo (Gt) and Tatsuhi (Ba). Yuya (Dr) joined the band in June of the same year. Their music is based on digital, jazzy funk-sounded Rock, but it’s colorful and pop at the same time. Their unique, melodious song and Ryuji’s unusual fashion sense are the 2 main features of ZORO.
