Ryo Horinouchi
Born on October 26, 1988 Kagoshima, Japan
Graduated from Waseda University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Arts
Released his album “Crystal line” in 2018.

Ryo was born and raised in a nature-rich land of Kagoshima, surrounded by oceans, mountains and forests.
When he was four years old, he was taken by his mother to the city theater to see his first musical play, the Wizard of Oz, which left a deep impression on him. Around that time, he enjoyed playing the toy piano bought by his father, and began taking piano lessons at the age of five.
Ryo also had an interest in foreign cultures since childhood, enjoying TV programs such as Sesame Street, Little House on the Prairie, and films from across the world.
In his teenage years, he studied twice in the United States through short-term overseas programs.
After graduating from high school, Ryo entered the School of International Liberal Studies at Waseda University and studied literature and thought under Professor Norihiro Kato. He also studied for a year at Lewis & Clark College in Portland, Oregon, where he studied gender studies, vocal music and fine arts and joined the college choir. After returning to Japan, he was absorbed in stage performance and literature. His graduating art project was a theater performance of a short story by Kenji Miyazawa, where he was in charge of the script, music and staging.
Since graduating from university, Ryo has been creating and publishing music, in addition to working on film and theater productions and teaching at a cram school. He released an album in January 2018, and is currently preparing for new projects.
