“I think Japan has so many unique and original things. Actually, I realized this after I moved to New York.” – Ki-yo
It’s not often that we’re moved by gospel music, but the moment we heard Ki-yo singing his stirring rendition of Inhabit My Praise amidst a jubilant African-American choir we knew we’d discovered someone very special. A veteran of the Japanese music industry, the never lacking in confidence Ki-yo (aka KIYOTAKA) released his first single while he was still a teenager. After a string of albums in Japan Ki-yo made the decision in 2010 to tackle the New York music scene.
With his second international single “Dear All My Loves” to offer up what better time to hear the story of the man who says: “I love that moment that people understand my message and are affected by the positive influence of my music. There’s nothing else that can bring me more joy and happiness than that.”
On May 23, 2012 Ki-yo was kind enough to give an interview to J-Pop World. Ki-yo Interview.
