Kan Mikami


Kan Mikami (三上寛) takes much of his inspiration from the school of singer/songwriters and blues vocalists. From the rural district of Tsugaru, Mikami's parched voice and plaintive electric guitar (sometimes the only backing) reveals the true spirit of the folkish sad blues, even though he sings in Japanese.

Quite popular in his native country during the 1970s, Mikami endured quite a dry period during the following decade, but came back on the predominantly noise-oriented PSF Records.

Beginning with 1989's I'm the Only One Around, he released eight albums during the next ten years and gained respect from another generation of Japanese youth. Mikami also plays in the group Vajra with guitarist Keiji Haino and drummer Toshiaki Ishizuka. Read more on Last.fm.
