V.I.P – What happend in Europe??

V.I.P started his activity in May 2014 and it’s the solo works of the Japanese vocalist and composer Hiroaki Nakashima.

Since 2011 has Hiroaki also been the vocalist and songwriter for the Japanese rock duo I-ai- who was on their first European tour in January 2014. V.I.P stands for “Vocalist I-ai- Project”.

This time it was V.I.P’s turn to enter European stage for the first time and his debut took place in Sweden.

Concerts was held in Stockholm (August 29th) and Uppsala (August 30th) and it was two amazing shows in which we could hear new songs by V.I.P, such as WE ARE ONE, SOMA, MARIA etc. He also created two special songs for the swedish fans; “Tack så mycket” and “Hej”. A funny initiative I must say!

During V.I.P’s stay in Sweden he had time to experience a lot of stuff. If you follow Hiroaki Nakashima or V.I.P on Facebook, you will be able to see a lot of personal photos from his activities.

The music video for V.I.P’s songs “WE AE ONE” was recorded in Stockholm and will be produced by Endigo. I can’t wait to see the result!

V.I.P is certainly an extremely talented musician that I want to see more of and I recommend everybody to listen to his fist single “WE ARE ONE/SOMA”:

Welcome! This is not an actual news site but a personal blog, run by an ordinary person who loves visual kei. This is my space where I ventilate thoughts and values and shares happenings within the scene. My goal is to make information easy to access and to support artists and movements that I admire. Especially smaller bands that need an extra push in the djungle of major bands. English is not my native tounge so please condone my linguistic mistakes.
