J-Pop all-star Gen Hoshino
For many in Japan, Hoshino is known as the leading member of instrumental band Sakerock, whose uplifting melodic music was much-loved across the country and featured as the soundtrack for movies and TV series. Hoshino went solo in 2010 with the release of his debut album "Baka no Uta" and was well-received, with his singles featuring in Japan’s top charts. The singer-songwriter followed this up with more albums, each one proving more popular than the last, including "Episode" in 2011 and "Stranger" in 2013, the latter receiving gold-certification and peaking at number two in the album charts. It was his fourth studio album, "Yellow Dancer" in 2015, that could be said to truly establish him as one of J-Pop’s most exciting stars, combining his brand of uplifting music with a contemporary pop sound. He has gone on to become one of the country’s most-streamed artists and continues to make waves with his releases and live shows.

Award-winning pop music
Along with being a star actor in some of Japan’s biggest movies, Hoshino has become a household name with an international fan base. 2018’s "Pop Virus", his fifth album, was a truly infectious slice of pop that stayed at the top of the album charts for four consecutive weeks and resulted in Hoshino becoming the first artist ever to pick up four trophies at a single Space Shower Music Awards, leaving the 2019 edition with the awards for Best Album prize, Best Song prize for "Idea", Best Pop Artist prize and the People’s Choice — a prize awarded by a public vote. His 2019 EP, "Same Thing", saw the J-Pop artist push the boundaries of his sound even further, teaming up with the likes of international indie-pop band Superorganism and Japanese MC PUNPEE, embracing a new sound that established him as a world popstar. He represents another artist in an exciting generation of performers to come out of Japan along with J-Pop princess Kyary Pamyu Pamyu and idol group Momoiro Clover Z.
