Yasu has one of the most beautiful voices I know. I usually praise Satsuki‘s voice to the skies and I will keep doing that for as long as he sings … but Yasu is not far behind.
And it’s so funny – or stupid – I might regard it as both… For a very very long time, I listened to Janne Da Arc a lot. Yasu used to be the singer in that band.
I absolutely loved Janne Da Arc – and still do. Very much due to Yasu’s voice.
When they decided to take a indefinite hiatus I got pretty disappointed of course, and somehow lost interest for anything happening to the members.
Only some months ago a friend of mine wanted me to listen to Acid Black Cherry and I was like “Sure, I’ve heard some songs by them, but they kind of get lost in that blur of all jrock bands.”
So we listened to the song and I said: “This sounds SO much like the singer in Janne Da Arc.”
“It’s because it’s him“, my friend said.
And there I rediscovered Yasu and his solo project Acid Black Cherry. Yasu has a very special appearance – you don’t mistake him for someone else – just like his voice.
And now there’s a new full promotion video available: Mirai Yosouzu Ⅱ
