Last year I collaborated with my good friend, Marty Hicks, to produce some tracks for my Tokyo Talks series on YouTube.
Good news, his album is finally out and you can get it on bandcamp: https://martyhicks.bandcamp.com/
Rewind almost 4 years ago when I met first met Marty in Kyoto when I was working at Ritsumeikan University. He was a short-term study abroad student with his sights on furthering his studies at the Tokyo University of the Arts in the future. Well guess what? He’s doing that now!
Very active in the local music scenes in and around Tokyo, you’ll find his Instagram (@marty256) to be a snapshot of his exciting life as an Australian / musician / pianist / composer / artist – living in Japan.
