FOUR LEAF SOUND bio

A sound project by a Japanese poet and singer songwriter, Murabayashi and a Boston-based sound creator, Yuki Kanesaka aka Monolog and U-key.  Mixing elements of Jazz, HipHop and Soul Music, FLS incorporates Spoken Words poetry as the most core element of their music, and they call their style “poetry soul.”
 
FOUR LEAF SOUND(FLS) started out when Murabayashi called her friend from college, Yuki Kanesaka to record her original songs.  They completed their first album, "27" in 2007, the second album, "29" in 2009, and the third album, "32" in 2012.  The titles of the albums are Murabayashi's age at the time of the recording. 
 
"FOUR LEAF SOUND" is named after a four-leaf-clover, hoped to spread blessings. 
 
They didn’t have any live performances until 2013 when they had their first tour performances in Osaka and Tokyo.  Because Murabayashi currently lives in Japan, and Yuki lives in Boston, Murabayashi performs FOUR LEAF SOUND as a solo act.
