“This album is the product of almost four years of performance and composition collaboration Wanting to make a more Japanese album, I had my lyrics to The Moon translated and we brought on veteran pro vocalist Chiharu Okamoto to perform those songs,” says Arthur Fowler regarding his latest release.
Having released memorable and riveting albums and EPs, Arthur is currently available for bookings in the greater Tokyo area (and beyond) as a solo performer, session artist, or band member.
