Ryo Katsuji to release first CD as an Enka singer
Katsuji Ryo will release his debut CD as an Enka singer named "Katsu Katsujiro."
Though he has released 2 digital-only songs before, this will be his first CD release.
His first single is entitled "Ofuro wa Nurume no Katsujiro" which is produced by scriptwriter Kudo Kankuro, and composed by Yokoyama Ken of Crazy Ken Band.
Katsuji's previous two songs were also produced by Kudo. Both songs were made from a popular segment in Kudo's radio program "Kudo Kankuro no All Night Nippon GOLD" in which Kudo collected 1 to 2 lines of lyrics every week from the radio listeners, and he made one song by connecting those lyrics.
The first song "Dragon Kidori no Teenage Blues", was released in March 2014 under the name "Ryo the graduater", and the second song "Geta wo Narashite September" was released under the name "Love-ji Ryo feat. Nakashima Mika" in October of the same year.
The new song "Ofuro wa Nurume no Katsujiro" is made in the same manner as the previous songs, but this time, it will be released as a physical CD for the first time. Reportedly, the previous 2 songs will also be included in this single.
Katsu Katsujiro's debut CD single is set for released on July 15.
