So this year we did a bunch of acoustic shows.
Tone&Shinryu played local shows around Tokyo/Kanagawa region under the name of “藍色伊万里” (Aiiro Imari – or Imari Blue).
Because of this, Tone’s singing skill has become better.
It was all good training for his singing.
One of the results is here.
We did a live stream on Instagram on November 26th 2021.
It was a practice day for our acoustic performance.
It was just a casual acoustic practice but for some reason we decided to go online and do a live streaming without a notice.
We did it just because it was fun.
We played some cover songs, such as Queen, Van Halan, and Switchfoot.
When playing stripped down acoustic songs, it’s all about singing. But I think we did a good job. Tone’s singing skill was better than before.
Of course we did very well with our own songs.
But singing those cover songs was a challenge.
Honestly, I didn’t think I could sing these songs before, especially in a live situation.
We posted 2 cover songs from that streaming live performance.
Freddie Mercury / Queen / “I Was Born To Love You”
Van Halen (Sammy Hagar) “Dreams” (this is a tough one)
It’s not perfect but Tone’s singing is getting better.
Honestly, I never consider myself a heavy metal singer. My voice is more for pop songs and I consider myself some kind of a glam rock singer.
For some reasons I ended up singing lead in my band.
But I will try my best, because it’s all about message.
And it’s all about the message of love.
