Singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist K Ishibashi was born in Seattle, Washington but spent his formative years on the East Coast, where he honed his skills as a touring violinist for the likes of Sondre Lerche, Regina Spektor, and, later, Of Montreal.
In 2003 he co-founded the Brooklyn-based indie pop outfit Jupiter One, who went on to release a pair of EPs and two full-length albums. In 2011 Ishibashi embarked on a solo career, adopted the pseudonym Kishi Bashi, and began opening shows for Lerche, Alexi Murdoch, and Of Montreal, eventually releasing 151A, his full-length solo debut under the moniker, in April 2012. Ishibashi's sophomore outing, Lighght, followed in early 2014. ~ James Christopher Monger, Rovi
