£3.00 advance / £4.00 door
Hideka’s first time to the UK and her only UK gig this year, Hideka performs live! After starting out as bassist-vocalist with Loco-Holidays then performing in the solo project Ruby Ruby Star, Hideka gained experience as a music producer, songwriter-lyricist and commercial songwriter before taking her career to a new level as a solo artist. With melodious vocals that seem to float and a unique sensitivity reflected in her craft, she appeals to fans both in Japan and around the world. Her musical concept covers a wide range of genres—dream pop, alternative rock, ambient, electronica, shoegaze, bossa nova, jazz, etc.— aimed at pleasantly stimulating the senses of the listener and arousing the power of imagination. Through the filter named ‘Hideka’, these join together and produce a unique style that charm the listeners as her musical wings spread farther and farther.
