He has received many offers for guest appearances, and has participated as a guest performer in many works by artists in Japan and abroad.
In 2022, he released five singles under his own name, and in March 2023, his second mini-album "This Too Shall Pass" was released.
The song "Damn!" was selected for the Spotify chart playlist "Tokyo Super Hits!
The band has also attracted attention by performing at major domestic and international events such as "SXSW2023" and "KOBE MELLOW CRUISE 2023".
