At the age of 12, he released his debut album entitled “FIRST STEP” on an independent label in Kyoto, Slice of Life Records which produced albums by many foreign and Japanese solo acoustic guitar artists such as Erik Mongrain, Laurence Juber (ex-member of Paul McCartney & Wings) to name a few.
In May 2017, Kent released his second solo album entitled “2” which featured 13 songs with original arrangements and one original composition, “Desert Island”. His solo guitar playing on those original arrangements for fingerstyle guitar which had no overdub surprised and impressed many pro musicians, the music media, and (of course) music fans. Besides, most of the songs were hit songs from the 1970s that Kent was drawn to.
In October 2018, Kent released his 3rd solo album “My Favorite Songs” which includes his 11 original arrangements of such hits as “Hotel California (Eagles)”, “Thriller (Michael Jackson)”, “Jojo (Boz Scaggs)”, “I Wish (Stevie Wonder)”, “I.G.Y. (Donald Fagen)”, “September (EWF)” and one original composition “Midnight in Bogota”. Kent’s new album has received very high acclaim by many music media and pro musicians. In particular, “Thriller” and “Hotel California” are always two of the highlights of his solo concerts.
