First, please take a listen to his voice - It is pliable, not taking on any color, and every aspect opening to the future. It has class; it is subdued; it has atmosphere that makes you feel somehow inaccessible. It has vulnerability that does not belong to either children or adults. Is it just a coincidence that Yuya Matsushita, while gifted with such a strong weapon, is also endowed with incredibly good looks? Or is it destiny?
Just so that you know, he was not discovered by his good looks. Growing up enjoying American movies and music, he was suddenly seized by an impulse to sing when he was in the 6th grade, and chose a music school by himself to pursue the urge. The school was Caless Vocal & Dance School, a renowned performing arts school in Osaka that has turned out many artists such as Shota Shimizu. Yuya's innate talent took little time before being brought to attention; the school quickly put together a special curriculum for him. With producer Jin Nakamura, a megahit maker who had worked with EXILE and CHEMISTRY to name a few, a big project to nurture Yuya Matsushita as an artist was launched.
Conflicts and struggles came and went during the five years since then. When Yuya was in the ninth grade, he clashed over his future plans with his mother, who had brought him up all by herself. It was around that time when he visited New York City, the city of his dreams, and realized anew the path he wished to pursue. As a result, he further refined his expressive power instead of going to high school - and finally seized the chance of debut. Maintaining the teamwork with Caless and Jin Nakamura, Yuya is currently in the studio with Nakamura recording his favorite, R & B / hip-hop based tracks. Debut single "foolish foolish" was the first track Nakamura presented to Yuya in New York City, the place he renewed his determination to pursue music .
And now, Yuya Matsushita is about to step onto center stage with such a memorable song. He has also set his goal as an artist. "I want to be something you have never seen before - definitely not an epigone of somebody. I can ' t help being compared to someone else, but after all, I live and let live. I want to be said, 'that's very him.' "
