Post your comments about our Heday Interview and let us know what you thought of him.
“Though I enjoy classical music, I understand that it sometimes requires some training and knowledge to enjoy. To me, what the Beatles did was to digest complicated music into the simplest form, whether it was intentional or not. And that is what I’m trying to achieve.” – Heday
Trained in classical music, it was really the classic rock of groups like the Beatles that first formed the musical passions of the Japanese singer/songwriter Heday. From Shizuoka, Japan, Heday (aka Hidehito Ikumo) took the path of many hopeful Japanese musicians and journeyed to the far away shores of the US to pursue his musical dreams.
Heday has recently joined forces with the beautiful songbird Valerie Stern to form the group Layla Lane. Come take a listen to the music of this promising duo and learn the story of their upcoming debut album, how Heday ended up in Los Angeles and how he finally got to jam with the great Ringo Starr.
On September 4, 2009 Heday was kind enough to give an interview to J-Pop World. Heday Interview.
