We are proud to introduce a new talent, Motoomi Doi. This June, we will be releasing the label°«s first album by a male singer song writer.
Doi, a singer song writer based in Osaka, has released two independent albums to date. °»N-N-N°… announced in 2010 was a °»free distribution°… (versus the now-popular °»free download°…) where users who sent request by email to Doi°«s website received an album by post at a later date (no longer available.) This unique presentation method along with the high quality of its musical content brought Doi into the spotlight mainly by word-of-mouth on the Internet.
Following the release of these independent albums is what Doi himself claims as his °»first official album.°… °»The Illuminated Nightingale°… is an album based on the concept of °»night°…, portraying an entire evening from dusk to dawn. Each track reveals many faces from swingy pop tunes, electro-pop scattered with soft electro sounds and beats, solemn waltzes to simple song. This colorful collection of music is a strong reflection of the artist°«s extraordinary talents as an arranger and melody maker. Added to that are the sorrow, solitude, anxiety, joy, and peace expressed through his delicate and neutral high-tone voice combined with a lyrical world of light and darkness which elevates Doi°«s unique presence to one of a whole new level.
We go in and out of dream and wander through a world where fantasy (buoyancy) and reality (gravitation) co-exist. Where will this path take us and what kind of view will we see from this place where night calls out its end.
Melodies of rare beauty carry a trying but beautiful story of °»night°… woven by darkness and light. Enjoy °»The Illuminated Nightingale°… by Motoomi Doi.
