He joined the legendary JAM Project in 2002 and has performed with them at Budokan and around the world. Besides singing for JAM Project, he also writes songs for many artists. In 2012, he released his original album “Real”. In 2014, his 20th anniversary, he released his best album, “SCORE”, and did a tour in Japan.
