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 with a small cassette tape player his grandma gave for his birthday. Fascinated by the machine, he started recording every music he liked on TV and radio straight out of speakers.
At early teenage days, his love to the music moved on from “listening” to “playing”, started out with the piano, then hopped onto the guitar.
After learning about the music he got pulled into are called Blues, Rhythm & Blues, Rock’n Roll, Funk, Soul music, and they are all originated culture in this place called the U.S.A., he started having this dream of “playing the guitar in real musical environment that created the sound.”
Pursuing this dream, he moved to Atlanta, Georgia, and started following its music scene for some jams to crack into it.
His “Blues /Soul /Funk /Classic Rock” influenced guitar style led him to wide range of music scene from Southern Blues /Rock, Gospel, Reggae, Pop, to Urban Soul /R&B, and works from studio recordings to live performances in nationwide.
