SHOTA SHIMIZU (SHOTA) Hailing from Osaka, Japan, Shota Shimizu (SHOTA) is a 20 year-old singer/songwriter with an exceptional talent. Along with studying gospel at a local music school, his fascination with soul music has led him to create his own unique style — strong yet sensual singing incorporating hip-hop influenced vocal delivery. In 2007, he received much acclaim for his performance on stage at New York’s world famous Apollo Theater and made his debut from Sony Music in following spring. SHOTA also made a successful second New York appearance at Central Park, headlining the annual JAPAN DAY FESTIVAL performing in front of several thousand New Yorkers.
 
SHOTA’s debut album reached #2 on the album chart in late 2008, and his subsequent singles have been a series of smash hits with over 2 million D/L per title.
In March 2nd, 2010, SHOTA is back to New York City making a special guest appearance at SOBs R&B Showcase as he releases his sophomore album back home.
