Started his career in 2005 as a member of the idol group AAA, Mitsuhiro Hidaka simultaneously launched his solo career under the name, SKY-HI. He was active in the club scene of Tokyo, participating in numerous rap battles outside of his pop career.
SKY-HI’s 3rd solo album, OLIVE was released in January 2017. This album transcended SKY-HI’s name as a singer-songwriter outside of the music industry. In March, “SKY-HI HALL TOUR 2017 WELIVE” was announced. He brought the tour to 13 cities, which accounted for 15 shows in total including 2 nights at the highly celebrated Budokan venue.
SKY-HI credits his musical inspirations to world music and pursues to produce globally-competitive sounds. When Mark Ronson visited Japan, they both sat in an interview and discussed their shared views on their music.
