SOA (vo) and Yoshimitsu Murayama (gt) played Shirohige in Higashi-Osaka City, Osaka Pref., on July 25th, 2018

The guitarist is good at bringing out unknown talents of the singer he plays with. He says it will take about ten sessions for the duo to really hit it off with each other.

It was the third time for Yoshimitsu Murayama to accompany SOA.

Yoshimitsu Murayama (guitar)

SOA leads a band which performs contemporary sounds. She sometimes uses a voice looper in the band. But she showed she is able to nicely play songs in a traditional way without gimmicks that night. Her singing and voice feel like it ushers in the new era of vocals.


SOA (voice)

The gig was bracing enough to get sweltering hot days this summer out your mind.
