Event Description

Ryo Okumoto was born in Osaka, Japan. He began playing classical piano at the age of three and continued through 13. He became a professional musician at the age of 15 performing at the Live House in Osaka for a year. Because of his great desire to learn more about different styles of music and his strong independence, he moved to Tokyo at the age of 16. Ryo performed in nightclubs and discos for the next five years.

It was 1994 when Ryo became part of Progressive Rock group SPOCK'S BEARD. The band quickly hit the top of the prog scene with many successful European and US tours. Their tenth studio album "X" was released in 2010, and the band are currently recording a new album after releasing a live CD & DVD from their popular 2010 tour.

Ryo's skills are internationally recognized now and he is reaching audiences all over the world. He has been featured in many magazines worldwide ~ Dutch Rock magazine "iOPages," for example.

Ryo's creativity has no limitations and his undying passion for music will always keep him visible, whether it be rock, jazz, R&B or a broadway production. He will always be in the public's eye.
