Sho Kotani, who was born between Japanese mother and American father and has been the drummer and songwriter for 10 years in his own bands, finally released his very first singer debut single “GOTHIC STAR”. This track was taken from the forthcoming EP which will be released this summer. His aim is for performing on Glastonbury Fest in the UK.

After the end of Embrace, he came to become a solo artist and finally released his singer debut single GOTHIC STAR after much trial and error for 2 years. The melody and the sounds seem to be influenced by his many kinds of favourite artists like Oasis, Suede, and The Stone Roses, and its strings arrangement is reminiscent of David Bowie or XJapan.
For Covid-19 disease charity, Belgian music production agency HIGHFeeL proposed a plan to release a special compilation album with 13 Japanese artists in early April. He’s taken a part of it by his song Dear Diary, which is recorded in a week and written for all people in quarantine. All the profits go to local non-profit organisations that help seniors and those working on the front lines during this crisis.
