The legendary guitar artist MIYAVI is due to release a 2nd collaboration album “SAMURAI SESSIONS vol.2” on Nov 8, 2017 with digital version and 2 physical formats (Limited edition with DVD/ Standard CD only).
MIYAVI has been keeping himself busy after shooting the Angelina Jolie movie “Unbroken”. The movie brought wide recognition to him as an impressive actor, while at the same time greatly promoted his music activities overseas, especially in the North America market. His unconventional way of playing the guitar—not with a pick, but with his fingers in a “slap style,” has gained him admirers not only among Japanese Visual-kei geeks but also from band folks who have interest in guitar techniques.
So far, MIYAVI has had six successful world tours under his belt, totaling more than 250 shows in 30 countries across North and South America, Europe, Asia and Australia. The “Samurai Guitarist” now is ready for some new adventure!
