In 1982, Soul Hug was born to Japanese mother and Korean father. His father had lots of overseas business trips when he was young, and that got him into Western music. He started to learn the piano when he was 9-years-old but quit in a year. However he continued playing the piano his way and  created his own style (although he lost his note reading and writing skills)

After graduating from high school, his love of music was to R&B and Hip Hop, he formed his crew and worked as the track maker.

Through many kind of instruments and music, now he is back to his roots as a pianist…Before he changed his artist name, Takaaki Chiba, one of his track had taken first place in Japanese Jazz ranking and other 4 tracks were also in top 10 in the mobile social community site “Mobage”

In his other work, he has been collaborating with other artists, appearing on radio and his tracks have been played at various events

Now he is working on releasing his own solo album… “Soul Hug” Unforgettable, valued words, and meaningful words of his belief in his heart by following his heart and soul..

“No lie in Music   Music can’t lie”..
