Started 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 was active in the club scene of Tokyo, participating in numerous rap battles outside of his pop career.
In 2012, SKY-HI launched the critically acclaimed “FLOATIN’LAB” project in response to his success. He collaborated with other artists in the album and was awarded the “WOOFI’N AWARD 2012” for “BEST RAPPER”, for his musical collaborations with artists such as KREVA and multi-city tour across Japan.
In 2013, he made his major debut, and in March of the following year, released his first album “TRICKSTER”. In the same year, he took home MTV’s “VMAJ 2014 BEST HIP HOP VIDEO”. His skills and refined musical tastes have transcended genres and has now generated enormous attention from rock and subculture scenes.
2015 was another remarkable year for the artist. SKI-HI has accomplished his 9-city, 9-show country-wide tour “Ride My Limo”, attracting more than 10,000 fans. In response to the high demand, 3 additional shows were hosted at the famous ZEPP halls. SKY-HI himself produced the band’s sounds, staging, and lighting, integrating a live-band, and a group of dancers he calls SUPER FLYERS. Big bands have become an important element in SKY-HI’s solo tours.
SKI-HI’s second album “CATHARSIS” was released in January 2016. The album showcased his eccentric musical tastes and his story-telling ability as a lyricist. Following the release, he completed his first cross-nation music-hall tour “SKY-HI HALL TOUR 2016 Find Ms. Liberty”. A choir accompanied his performance, and the tour was a sold-out success. It helped accelerate SKY-HI’s 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 at smaller venues as well 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 transcended SKY-HI’s name as a singer-songwriter outside of the music industry. In March, “SKY-HI HALL TOUR 2017 WELIVE” was announced. He brought the tour to 13 cities, which accounted for 15 shows in total including 2 nights at the highly celebrated Budokan venue.
SKY-HI credits his musical inspirations to world music and pursues to produce globally-competitive sounds. When Mark Ronson visited Japan, they both sat in an interview and discussed their shared views on their music.
In August 2017, SKI-HI announced a 24-show world tour. He will bring his critically-acclaimed performance to Paris, London, LA, NY, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Japan.
