Bless4 is a j-pop band formed since 2003. They have a bit of success, but it seems that they have their success a bit more outside Japan, for example, in Korea or in Germany/Europe. That’s why they recently did release single in English and they are promoting it here in Europe. All the members are brothers and sisters. Except for the oldest, they were all born in the USA. So they are fluent in English, which is a good thing to have a worldwide success. They still need to work on that success but they seems to be on the right road for it. They are really talented and with Japako Music we definitely want to help them get more success. Since we had the chance to see them live at Animaco Berlin, we totally fell in love with their music. Live, they are really great, giving a lot of energy and sharing a lot with the public. They were entertaining the public and put a very good atmosphere during the live. They can sing really well and they are also able to dance. They have everything needed to have the success. We definitely advise you to listen to them, you will probably like it!
To introduce the members a bit , we have the oldest brother Akashi, he has surely a lot of charisma, a great voice and a very nice body. He is quite funny and can speak a lot. He likes sharing with the public the most. And we can totally see that he is kind of the leader because he has a lot of authority. The oldest sister Kanasa has a sweet voice, she is a bit quieter compared to her brothers but she is a very good dancer and she has a lot of energy. The second sister Akino is probably the most famous of the band as she is also doing solo activities. She has a beautiful and strong voice. Hearing her sing is always astonishing, because she can go very high in the notes. The youngest brother, Aiki has a strong and wonderful voice as well, and he can dance nicely. He has a lot of charisma and like his brother, he has a lot of humor. All 4 are very friendly and you cannot help but getting attach to them.
It’s pretty hard to really have good information about their releases, but we will try to be as accurate as we can. They released a first single in May 2003 called „Good morning, Mr sunshine“. In February 2005, they released an album called All4one. In between, they are releasing a few other singles but also an album solo for Akino as well as for Aiki. Their International debut is in 2010 with the release of the single „Dandelion“. Then they did another full album in Japanese which was released in January 2011, called „Yume tsumigi“. Their last release was this year 2012, with their new English single „Sunshine dancer“.
Those 4 talented guys who are also producing themselves are really worth your interest, so we can only tell you to check them and give them your support because they deserve it! We will definitely watch them and spread the world with their wonderful songs!
