SUGIZO made his debut in May 1992 as the composer, guitarist and violinist of the band LUNA SEA, in 1997, during LUNA SEA's roughly yearlong break, SUGIZO began his career as a solo artist.

LUNA SEA, whose legendary talent left an indelible mark on the rock scene of the 90's disbanded in late 2000. SUGIZO resumed his solo work in 2001, expanding his horizons to include such diverse fare as soundtracks, acting, and contemporary dance.

From an extremely young age, SUGIZO received advanced training in violin, musical composition, and classical music. His thorough understanding of composition and innate skill allow him to create guitar and violin performances filled with an inner light that lifts the listener from the present moment into the sublime.

Respected for his beautiful, deep, and cosmically spiritual sound design, SUGIZO creates his own scene while smashing genre boundaries apart. His refined artistic sense and powerful presence have brought his popularity both in Japan and overseas. An activist as well as a musician, SUGIZO also takes part in a wide variety of anti-war and environmental activities.

On December 5, 2007, SUGIZO released SPIRITUARISE, an album consisting of remixes of his original songs created by renowned artists from Japan and abroad. Then on December 24 - a Christmas Eve blessed by a perfect full moon - LUNA SEA re-united for just one night.Their concert at Tokyo Dome dominated the musical scene at the end of that year.

The album COSMOSCAPE, a collection of SUGIZO's solo work, came out on July 23, 2009 to great praise and admiration. He then held a long-awaited solo concert on December 19. The DVD from this show, called RISE TO COSMIC DANCE, is a true incarnation of "SUGIZO Music" and was released on March 25.

Along with his solo work, SUGIZO is currently involved in a wide variety of projects on a global scale. He is part of the legendary trance techno band JUNO REACTOR, psychedelic jam band SHAG, shamanic electronica unit S.T.K. (Sensual Technology Kooks) and S.K.I.N.,the Japanese rock supergroup that also includes YOSHIKI (X Japan), GACKT and Miyavi, SUGIZO also played support guitar for X Japan, who reformed after a ten-year absence, before officially joining the band on May 1, 2009.
