Kay-Ta Matsuno was born in Osaka, Japan, and moved to Boston, MA to study at Berklee College of Music when he was 20. The broad capacity of his playing style (from Gospel, R&B, country, jazz, and rock) helped him to start his career as a session guitarist in Los Angeles. His list of credits includes:
David Foster, Baby Face, Natalie Cole, Keiko Matsui, Lalah Hathaway, Amerie, Chante Moore, Jackiem Joyner, Daniel Bedingfield, Malcolm Jamal Warner, Steve Porcaro, Virgil Donatti, Tony Macalpine, Jody Watley, Amber Riley (from Glee), and Bob Mintzer (from Yellow Jackets).
In 2016 he released his debut album Arrival, a recording that is still garnering considerable airplay. Now working with Polyphemus Records, he is on a quest to produce 10 singles in 10 weeks, later to be released as a special 10 track album.
Taken from this upcoming album is the first track Distance.
