About SKY-HI

Starting his career in 2005 as a member of the idol group AAA, Mitsuhiro Hidaka simultaneously launched his solo career under the name SKY-HI. He roamed around the club scene of Tokyo participating in rap battles undercover from his pop career.

In 2012 SKY-HI launched the critically acclaimed “FLOATIN’LAB” project, where he collaborated with other artists, releasing a CD in response to the success. He was awarded the “WOOFI’N AWARD 2012” for BEST RAPPER for his musical collaborations with artists such as KREVA.

In 2013 he made his major debut and in March of 2014 he released his first album “TRICKSTER”. In the same year he won MTV’s “VMAJ 2014 BEST HIP HOP VIDEO”. His skills and refined musical tastes have transcended genres gaining him attention from the rock and “subculture” scenes.

In 2015, SKY-HI embarked on a nine-show country-wide tour called “Ride My Limo” where more than 10,000 people attended. In response to the high demand three additional shows were hosted at the famous ZEPP halls. For these shows, SKY-HI himself produced the band’s sounds, staging, and lighting, integrating a live-band, and a group of dancers he calls SUPER FLYERS.

In January of 2016, his second album “CATHARSIS” was released. The album showcased SKY-HI’s eccentric musical tastes and his story-telling ability as a lyricist. In the following month, he completed his first seven-city cross-nation music-hall tour called “SKY-HI HALL TOUR 2016 Find Ms. Liberty”. This tour gained him industry-wide recognition for his unique entertainment style and contributed to his appearances at multiple large-scale music festivals.

Since 2016, he has been touring around smaller venues for his LIVE HOUSE TOUR sharing the stage with other artists under the name Round a Ground.

SKY-HI’s 3rd solo album, OLIVE was released in January 2017. This album elevated his name as a singer-songwriter outside of the music industry. In March of the same year a 13-city, 15-show “SKY-HI HALL TOUR 2017 WE LIVE” tour was announced where he played two shows at the celebrated Budokan venue.

He credits his musical inspirations to world music and pursues to produce globally-competitive sounds.
