Born 1954 in Ikuno-ku, Osaka, Atsuki Kimura has been a blues pioneer in a country with a culture, in all its aspects, as unique as it's unknown in western society, far from any tangential point with the Afro-American culture and logically of the blues as a musical legacy. Kimura was the frontman of the band YUCADAN (1975 - 1995) that were the forerunners in the introduction of blues music in the club circuits in the Japanese country and ended up being popular to the point of filling pavilions in front a devoted audience. After the dissolution of the band, Kimura began to build a career as a solo artist that has only increased his popularity over time and for a few years now he has been an artist of recognized reputation in the national arena. With YUCADAN he released more than a dozen albums and "Rock Steady" is his tenth solo album, in which with the Rock And Roll Band he appeals to his wildest side where rock and funk serve as a wrapper for Kimura to continue building high voltage blues. Over the last forty-five years this guy has been a pioneer of blues in Japan and his audacity has popularized it in the country of the rising sun. And this has much merit.
