Shunsuke Kikuta was born in the city of Utsonomiya (Japan) in 1966. And like so many others, he succumbed to the blues after hearing the mythical "Live At The Regal" by BB King for the first time. His beginnings in music were Mozart, Gary Moore, Miles Davis, folk and hard rock. In 1986 he moved to the United States to study music and it all began there, three years later he was in Chicago playing at Rosa's Lounge with Louis Myers, the starting point for his anchoring in the windy city. Later along with Junior Wells, James Cotton, Otis Grand, Koko Taylor and many others who were able to see in Shun the authentic value of his guitar. From his second row, the Japanese has built a professional career as an authentic back musician but with an outstanding own production, from his first album "They Call Me Shun" in 1995 to the latter "In A Room - Acoustic Solo" more than fifteen albums behind him they give him a prominent individual personality in the Chicago blues of the last decades. Relaxed and exuberant, Shun Kikuta gives us this acoustic album for the enjoyment of an essential blues musician.
