Bio: "go green" was formed by Kenji in 1995, as a trio band in Tokyo Japan. They didn't have much live shows like their former bands but concentrated on self-recordings. A few years later, go green has shifted to Kenji's solo recording project, sometimes with guest players.

Almost all of the songs were produced at a small apartment in Tokyo and go green pursued the possibilities of so-called "bedside recording" by powerful rhythms, crunchy guitars and floating melodies.

In 2008, go green has restarted the live shows in Tokyo. Kenji plays with acoustic/electric guitars and pre-self-recorded back tracks on iPod. That performance is sometimes described as a "stand-alone rock band".
In 2009, 2 songs (Baby Smiley Smile, Fantastic Bloom) received "Semi-Finalist" status at "UK Songwriting Contest".

The 2nd album "Floating on the Edge" was released in Mid-October 2010 in Japan via DIY label "SpunkTone" and early November in the U.S. through CDBaby and Amazon [Japan Import]. Download services are available on these digital music stores.
