Yasushi Yoshida (吉田靖) was born in November 1978 in Osaka, Japan. He writes, produces and performs music focusing on piano and guitar arrangements. Yoshida began making his name as a composer, contributing to multi-award winning dance companies, BABY-Q’s solo dance performances and various plays and films in Japan.
Not content with working solely within the music scene, Yasushi Yoshida has also contributed material to areas as diverse as theatre and visual arts. Collaborations include Yoko Higashino’s solo dance performance and Oi-SCALE theatre company’s “Michigaere Sekai”.
Although this is his official debut release, he has performed with many established local as well as international artists such as Nagisa nite, Ramo Nakajima, kicell, piana, RF and Pan American.
"It's been 20 months since Yasushi Yoshida released his fab post-classical meets electronica debut for the delicious Noble imprint. Now the time is ripe for a follow up, and we are exited and happy to be able to bring you another piece of humble and suggestive universe - beautiful, noble, elegant, and modern. Compositions to dream to. Bye bye spacetime. On your eyes. Another world. Welcome to “Little Grace” by Yasushi Yoshida. Piano, guitar, violin, live drums, cello, bass, saxophone, clarinets, and even saws. The album is a parade of songs compiled through a dramatic orchestration of these live instruments. Attention to detail, on every page, on every piano pedal stepped on, every breath of the horn, and every jump of the bow on a string instrument to create delicate and yet spectacular instrumental music."
