There’s much to be said about an artist that knows his craft. There’s even more to be said about an artist that lives, breathes, and innately knows his craft so well that you can almost see a lightened aura around those that have it in their blood, a renewed energy as you walk away from seeing them perform.
That - if no other other-worldly, almost karmic experience - is the feeling you get after witnessing the talent of an artist like SHōTA LōDI.
SHōTA’s sound blurs genres of “acoustic, neo-soul and pop,” finding hints of hip-hop layered over what is now known as his quintessential acoustic foundation. An accomplished clarinetist and pianist, SHōTA is a self-taught singer, songwriter, and guitarist, with a voice that boasts a raspy, edgy quality with a smooth, melodic touch. Influenced by 60’s era rootsy rock - musical interests like The Beatles, Stevie Wonder, and Bob Dylan that he explains were brought on by his father’s music collection - and citing artists like J. Cole, John Mayer, and Ed Sheeran as people he’d love to collaborate with.
A humble and grateful musician, making music is - and has always been - about “flying towards the future” for SHōTA, which is exactly what his name means in Japanese. With all of his recent success - including a highly-anticipated and memorable performance at The Peppermint Club in LA - and the promise of a new EP later this year, it’s full speed ahead in 2018.
