Just as the Japanese Baseball superstar Ichiro dreamed of playing in the Major Leagues, Aman Ryusuke Seto went to America with just a dream. His big break came when his band from Japan, “East” passed an audition for the famed club, “The Troubadour” in Santa Monica, the same venue in which Elton John played his first American concert. The legendary West Hollywood nightspot has played host to Carole King, James Taylor, Kris Kristofferson, and Carly Simon.
On the day of the audition, many of the major labels were there scouting for new artists. “East” brought the house down, and soon thereafter was offered contracts by three labels. Their first album titled “East”, placed in the top 10 -- with Elton John!
Ryusuke went on to study under Seiji Ozawa, Tohru Takemitsu and world famous Japanese Biwa (lute) player Kinshi Tsuruta. He released the albums, “567”, “Kegon”, “Water Song”, “Ho’oponopono Song” and “Dawn”.
Later, Aman found that he wasn’t satisfied with what he felt was being bound too tightly by the music industry, so he started his own business. He then went on to create his own recording studio (which was always another one of his dreams) and now he is standing at a new starting point.
Aman Ryusuke Seto is always pursuing a “New Frontier”.
