Takenobu / Bio

Playing everything from upbeat pop to more traditional folk, Takénobu’s unique and modern perspective on the strings will alter yours. Classically trained since pre-school, Nick Ogawa and Brian Harper bring a modern and lively sensibility to their traditional instruments. It's Rock, within reason.

"A genuine talent who can clearly hold his own as a solo performer . . . armed with a loop pedal, [Takenobu] constructs gorgeous soundscapes . . and it’s the rich, multi-ranged vocals that carry [the music] over the top." -Ben Krieger, JezebelMusic.com

"Takenobu:Introduction is my favorite album of 2007, and that includes all releases, major labels and independent." Michael Eck, Host of WAMC's Performance Place, NPR
