Ihara Kantaro is an up-and-coming singer-songwriter with a mellow and groovy sound that follows the 70's soul manner. His latest EP, a Japanese cover of Weldon Irvine's rare groove and free soul classic "I Love You", is out now! In addition to the 7-inch "I Love You / You Are Right," which was immediately sold out and fought for after receiving heavy play on radio stations nationwide, the EP also includes "gypsy/ rhapsody," which was also released on 7-inch, and the latest Studio Live Session of "I Love You. All songs will be released in CD format for the first time!
Ihara Kantaro embodies modern crossover soul with a sound that absorbs the essence of a wide range of musical styles based on soul and AOR from the 1970s onward. The rare groove and free soul classic "I Love You" by Weldon Irvine, released on 7" in February this year, received high acclaim for his skill and sense in singing a Japanese cover of the song while maintaining the feeling of the original, and the original coupling song "You Are Right" was also released on 7" in February. The original song "You Are Right" was also featured on radio stations and playlists across the country, and even the most discerning AOR listeners were impressed by her songwriting ability. In addition to the 7-inch "I Love You/You Are Right," which was immediately sold out and fought over, this latest EP includes two songs from the first album "C," which was also cut as a 7-inch: "gypsy," a refreshing groovy soul song with light cutting guitar and piano backing, and "you are right," a mellow, melodic song that is a perfect fit for the AOR genre. In addition to "gypsy", a mellow and sweet medium ballad "rhapsody", and the latest Studio Live Session of "I Love You" and "gypsy", all songs will be released in CD format for the first time!
