I’ve noticed the lack of posts i’ve made on japanese artists. So here’s a feature on a talented artist called Yuya Matsushita. So how did i get to know about this guy? Well it’s all thanks to my love for animes. I recently watched episode one of an anime called Durarara! And the ending theme song was sung by Yuya. The song is called Trust Me, and it sounds great. So before you all give me the weird look and wondering if an anime song would sound good, trust me (yes pun intended) it sounds good!

Notice how he was produced under the same producer who produced for THSK and EXILE. No wonder his songs sound good! ♥ He even portrayed the character of Sebastian Michaels (guy on the right in pic above if it was’nt already obvious enough) from the popular anime/manga Kuroshitsuji in the musical. Ouh im loving this guy even more now. xD

I’ve tried out all the songs, and i think they’re all nice! Especially Trust Me, Last Snow and Mr Broken Heart. It’s so beautiful. ♥ Btw is it just me, or does he look like Gackt at some scenes with that short hairstyle and pale snowy white skin? Well anyway hope you all enjoy listening to his songs as much as i did. For more info visit his official website and his official blog.
