As Behind the Shadow Drops, I have now successfully finished my first ever solo tour. It consisted of 20 shows over 11 countries. Thank you everyone who came to see me. Wherever I went, there were many warm, welcoming and respectful fans waiting, and the whole month made me feel that I could share my new art successfully with everyone. This truly made me feel happy.
I look at BtSD as something very important that lays inside of me. It’s almost like my other half that I need to co-exist, like a half moon floating in the night sky. But it’s not like a sad or a nostalgic feeling. This tour actually made me remember about the strong DIY energy that I almost forgot.
No matter how old I get, I want to continue playing guitar in many cities throughout the world. This was my dream ever since I picked up the guitar for the first time. I am truly thankful that because of all your support, I could experience my new challenge, my first ever solo tour, from the bottom of my heart. Thank you!
