Originally from Japan, Hayato moved to Australia at the age of 10 and then took up the guitar at the age of 15. After high school he moved to the U.S. to attend Berklee College of Music and later attended Musicians Institute in Hollywood.
Ever since Hayato picked up his guitar he fell in love with a wide variety of music genres: from blues to metal, funk to jazz, pop to country.
An accomplished musician who reads charts, he is equally proficient on stage and in the studio. Hayato is also a respected bass and keyboard player.
Hayato has experience touring, both nationally and internationally. With his passport current and his gear ready, he has no intention of slowing down.
