The PHOENIX rises again!!!

After a 2 years break, now Yu Phoenix is back in the music business!!

Together with KR MUSIC and the Producer Lars Rettkowitz he brought himself back into the spotlight by releasing his first single “MOONFLOWER” (Audiomagnet) in November 2011.

After the break of Cinema Bizarre in 2010 he moved to Los Angeles, lived and worked there as a songwriter and musician. At this time he improved his own music skills, improved his English and got to learn a different side of the world. With his friend Tadahisa Yoshida he started writing songs and planning his musical Comeback. Besides that he joined a friends band for that time, called „THE DARK“ to tour through all the famous Hollywood clubs.
While his time in L.A. he connected himself to the producer Lars Rettkowitz, to develope a concept and work on his songs and ideas. With all the experiences Yu decided to come back to Germany, to start the recordings on his new album in summer 2011. During the work in the studio he invited Jamie Lostein from Malaysia to work with him on a song that he started to write. Together with Jamie he recorded the song „MOONFLOWER“ at the KR MUSIC studios in Germany, which became his first worldwide released single after the break with Cinema Bizarre.

Next to the part as musician, Yu attaches great importance to the visual aspect for being a well known European representative of the „Visual Kei“ style. His energetic character and stage performances always infect the audience, therefore he became a trend-setter and style pioneer over the years for his fans.
By himself, he managed to survive all along and bring out new music and ideas.

Just like the Phoenix he returns from the ashes to burn again, brighter and stronger to burst the fire in the hearts of his fans!!!
