After developing his skills as a jazz musician in Tokyo, KH came to New York in 2006 from Kobe, Japan. He is now actively writing and performing in his own unique style. KH cites such diverse influences as Duke Ellington, Benny Goodman, Steve Reich, Japanese koto player Michio Miyagi, 70s and 80s rock, and his own father, a big band saxophone player in Kobe. By swiftly slapping strings, tapping the neck, and knocking on the body of the instrument itself, KH uses every part of the acoustic guitar to create his music. He plays with technical dexterity - but not without emotion. KH''s music invokes varying moods and vivid imagery. He can play delicate melodies as well as challenging rhythms, painting pictures with sound of a summer day at the beach in Kobe, river rafting by kayak, water murmuring as it tumbles through a brook, or even the frenzy of a bird stained with oil. KH is one man with one guitar, but he is fully equipped to express himself.
