Tak ( pronounce Attack w/o A ),  is a guitar player/ songwriter/ noise organizer/ words mumbler at his own skin.

Born and raised in Osaka, Japan,  his interest in music began at early age as a kid.    At early teenage days,  his love to the music moved on from “listening” to “playing”,  started out with piano,  then moved onto the guitar.    After learning about the Blues, R&R, Old-school R&B, Funk and Soul music,  he started having this dream of “playing it in real musical environment that created/originated its culture.”
