This event has passed and sales are now closed
Born in Sapporo, Japan in 1989, Shohei grew up listening to the great rock and jazz guitar masters of the second half of the 20th century. Early on in his life, he became deeply enmeshed in the wealth of guitar tones and styles that emerged out of America and Europe and began studying the guitar as if it was his only calling. By the time he reached his twentieth birthday in 2010, he could emulate practically any guitar sound and style that existed in the world.
In 2010, Shohei was the unanimous choice of the judges for the First Prize of the Sapporo International Jazz Festival. He competed with over 200 entrants and surprised everyone, including himself, by taking first place. Since then, he released 2 albums and toured internationally such as Canada, Taiwan and Hong Kong. In January 2013, Shohei is coming down to Australia for the first time.
