Kishi Bashi is the pseudonym of singer, multi-instrumentalist, and songwriter Kaoru Ishibashi. Born in Seattle, Washington, Ishibashi grew up in Norfolk, Virginia, and attended the cross-genre musical hotbed of the Berklee College of Music in Boston, where he studied film music composition. The music this unique musician makes now reflect the many aspects of his background, including film scores, classical violin, the electronic rock he pursued as a member of the New York band Jupiter One, and another band he joined, the Athens, Georgia, indie rock group of Montreal. His live show often includes violin and vocal loops, beatboxing, and original compositions.
