Oshogatsu: A day in the life of an Anime/Jpop Artist

Happy 2020! January 1st in Little Tokyo they have Japanese New Year called Oshogatsu. I had the honor to perform not once but twice!

A very popular Anime store in Little Tokyo called Anime Jungle invited me out to perform and I really want to say thank you to Anime Jungle staff!😌🙏❤️ It was an honor to perform and to be welcomed with open arms into the Japanese community for Oshogatsu. I am very happy to have performed many times out in Little Tokyo for many Japanese festivals and events throughout the years. I really feel Little Tokyo is my home!

I am wanting to give you all a more behind the scenes look at what it takes to put on a show. I also included an Oshogatsu Music Video in the vlog. I made the track and it’s a cover of a traditional Oshogatsu folk song.

Thank you to EVERYONE that came out to support me! I saw many of you at both of my shows. I can’t express how much it means to me.

Christmas Eve (Yamashita Tatsuro/山下 達郎 Cover) – Cali Crisis at Tune In Tokyo Plastic City

Silent night, Holy night

Travel back in time to a place that only lives in your heart. One cold snowy Christmas Eve filled with music and love. Did you confess yet?

Plasmic and I performed as our group Cali Crisis for Tune In Tokyo Plastic City where we performed our cover of city pop classic Christmas Eve by Yamashita Tatsuro. One of the best Christmas songs ever made!

Plastic Love Meirlin Remix

At Tune in Tokyo presents Shibuya Holiday Market I performed with Meirlin where we debuted Plastic Love Meirlin Remix at the event. I had so much fun performing with Meirlin and I love her remix!

I am so excited to announce that the Meirlin remix is available on Spotify, iTunes, Amazon, etc.

Plastic Love Live at Bizen Beer Bar

I’m performing the classic city pop song Plastic Love at a Japanese beer bar called Bizen with guitarist Eric Gonzales. I love the conversations over the cold beer that intertwined with the music like a melody mixed in with the imperfections that make it perfect.
