Going viral in japaN
Evan has always been interested in J-Pop. When his hero Shuta Sueyoshi finished his album he listened to it immediately and loved Human. As it hadn't been out for long there were no backing tracks created and so he created his own backing track to do a cover version.
This meant that when he posted this Shuta was on tour promoting his #wonderhack album and he was keeping an eye on the response to his latest shows. Fortunately he liked Evan's version enough to retweet it and from absolutely nowhere Evan was getting a huge number of views on his tweet. As Evan has been teaching himself Japanese for some time now he has been able to talk to interested fans who have loved this cover version and requested more since. Good timing for our first release which also has a Japanese version of Far Be It. Many thanks to Shuta for retweeting and beyond all the positive feedback, Evan was so pleased that he liked it.
