Japanese instrumentalists D_DRIVE released their brand new single ‘I Remember The Town’.

At the request of guitarist Seiji, guitarist Yuki, bassist Shimataro, and drummer Chiiko gathered to form D_Drive.
April 1, 2018 Toshi was welcomed as a bassist.

The fun and splendor of musical instruments to as many people as possible, not lyrics or words
“I want to convey it with sound and expression.”
Each of the four parts is working with an instrumental style as if they were the main players.
And he is confident in the ensemble that can only be done by fixed members, sticking to the form of a band rather than a single player.

He set his own music genre as “Driving Rock” and started live activities in Kansai from January 2009.
After that, he started to perform live activities all over Japan, and now he holds about 80 live concerts and seminars a year.
In collaboration with various major companies, he has performed numerous performances at shows and events.
In addition, he has experience of live activities overseas in the United Kingdom, the United States, South Korea, and China, and is expanding the field of activities.
When Yuki was selected as the CM image character for Sony’s smartphone Xperia in 2017, D_Drive recorded the theme song and appeared in the music video of Xperia.
On March 31, 2018, D_Drive, which is in its 9th year of formation, announced the change of bassist from Shimataro to Toshi due to differences in values ​​and ways of thinking about the band on the premise of more energetic activity development than ever before.
On April 1, 2018, we will welcome a new member Toshi as a bassist and will be doing energetic activities as a new D_Drive.
In 2019, signed a contract with Marshall Records, a record label owned by Marshall, a major British amplifier manufacturer.
The world debut album’MAXIMUM IMPACT’has been released.
