Is there anyone who knows Shigure? ( しぐれ )

I found him one day at myspace and liked him immediately.

His real name is Kai. He is a singer and songwriter. Although he is german he writes and sings his songs in japanese. Its really awesome

He says that bands like Hirakawachi Iccoume, Bump of Chicken, Quruli, Yuzu, WaT, Kobukuro etc. influenced his music. If you know those bands you can feel that he likes them but on the same time he creates an unique sound. And his voice is really cute. Not in the sense of being perfect but really cute Also because he is not japanese i can feel an interesting mix between european and japanese thinking.

Unfortunately it is very difficult to get many information about him becuase he is not major artist and mostly you find information at his myspace. But unlike other musicians on myspace he writes back and seems like a really nice guy.

So far he has released a demo single named "Kisetsu o koete" which includes 3 tracks and 2 other songs which you can all listen to on his myspace. Soon - so he told me - his first mini album will be released.

His myspace:

rinzy: you should give it a try. (it seems quite a few germans are around here--? i wonder if japanese music is very popular in germany..)

ninie: no problem

he has added a new song to his music profile.
it is a cover version of famous japanese folksong "Nagoriyuki".
it is soooo nice
