Kenta Hayashi:

Live at Yonder Festival, Mary Valley, 30 November 2019

Japanese multi-instrumentalist and self-described “loop pedal ninja” Kenta Hayashi moved from Gifu, Japan, to Los Angeles at the age of 18 and formed the funk band Four Minutes Til Midnight. In the past ten years he has built up a solo career touring the world with his guitars and extensive setup of effects pedals that he uses in live performance, looping and building intricate parts one on top of the other. His latest album “Berliner Sparkler” came out in September 2019.
