Momo Kimura

Kimura Momo. Born in Kobe in 1986.

There is no resistance to the music itself because my parents’ house is doing music classes, and I was longing for the pianist father to stand on stage from my childhood.

When I went to an ASKA (CHAGE & ASKA) solo live at the age of 12, I was moved by how the back musician guitarist performed despite the high temperature of 40 degrees, and I became aspiring to be a guitarist.

After that, my father gave me a task “I will play the guitar if I can play the C, F, G, and D chords within an hour.”

He studied under Seiji Takano and Keigo Fujii, and has been playing the guitar ever since.

“I want to be a musician even if I’m reborn.”¬†

When I play the guitar, I just think of “delivery.”
For me, who wants to convey the feeling of “I want you to feel a little more relaxed and feel better,” songwriting is fun and enjoyable.

When a shock occurs in real life, when the heart shakes, songs are naturally created. There is a drama for each song, and there is affection.

What makes me most happy is that people who listen to the performance say “I’m glad to come.”

Some cry and listen, others say that the bad stuff is gone.

For those people, I will continue to play the guitar.

And one day, he will become the best guitarist in the world.

Currently working as an acoustic guitar teacher at the Music School Music School in Bremen.
