Multi-talented musician Ryomei Shirai is best-known as a member of The Moonriders, a genre-busting band formed ay back in 1975. Over the last few years, the members have released a number of solo albums and projects, and this is Ryomei’s. “Face to Guitars” is an album that ranges from straight-ahead rock to jazz/funk, progressive rock, and even Celtic reels in an eclectic fifty minutes worth. Ryomei held a special promotional event at Ebisu Livegate on Sunday March 22nd – and I was very happy to be a part of it.
“Face to Guitars” is out now on Vivid Records.
