Interview with Japan Artist Ray Kirk

Ray Kirk

Ray Kirk is a singer, songwriter, and producer from across the Pacific Ocean in Osaka, Japan. Ray has been involved in music for quite some and is now to take a different route. He and his business partner DJ Dantz started their own label titled “Lemon Soda Music” back in May of 2020. The two look forward to releasing their EP in the winter of 2021. But in the meantime, Ray Kirk hopes to make claim as an independent artist. Check out our interview with him below.

– Start of Interview –

Hey Ray Kirk! How are you doing?

“I am fine, thanks. I’m doing great.”

Tell us about your background getting to where you are today?

“Being born in Japan, I was immersed in the underground hip hop scene in Osaka. My friends and I started a hip-hop group named “423 Cross United” at 16 years old. We became very popular, performing every weekend in Osaka and occasionally Tokyo. Resulting in me being scouted by Columbia Music Japan. Ever since then I’ve been writing and producing music.”

Where are you from?

“Osaka, Japan”

When did you start music?

“I started writing around the age of 11, and started performing when I was 14.”

How did you get into music?

“My friend and I pulled up the night scene and asked for an event organizer. We freestyled for him and he loved it, resulting in us being added to the show.”

Who inspires you the most musically?

“Tevin Campbell.”

What do you want people to take away after listening to your music?

“I want them to feel free.”

What is your greatest achievement as a musician?

“That I have saved people’s souls. I have had fans come up to me saying they were contemplating on taking their life and if it weren’t for my music, they wouldn’t be here. That is my greatest achievement, and I will continue to achieve that until the day I die.”

Tell us about any new music you have coming out? When is coming out? What is it about?

“I have an album coming out called “We Made It” on June 1st; It’s about believing and achieving the vision that I saw.”

Anything else you want the audience to know about you?

“That I love and care for animals and nature.”
