Kris was born in Kyoto, Japan to an American Father and Japanese Mother. His fascination with music was apparent from an early age and at 19 years old he moved to Boston MA, to study music formally. Coupled with with his education, Kris performed across Boston and New York, hitting legendary venues such as the Bitter End and the Living room in Manhattan as well as Carnegie Hall. He also became a staple in the Boston Public Gardens as passionate street performer.
After independently releasing two EPs (Anything But Alone and Tails of Bufflebear) Kris took his knowledge and experience back to his motherland and successfully delivered his single Your Own Two Feet. Kris now resides in Tokyo preparing to release his first full length album Be Love.
In a time where technology can bridge the gap between countries, culture, and art, Kris is hoping to provide a borderless musical experience for open minds, open hearts, and most importantly, open ears.
