Kento Masuda has returned to the studio to work on his upcoming musical offering "Loved One", which will be released in Spring
of 2014. "Loved One" will trace Kento's musical journey throughout his most recent experiences and observations of life.

His performances featured classic pieces that highlighted his career thus far, with themes that touch upon the many feelings of life along with those unspoken but shared thoughts that transcend all borders. From the tragedy of the tsunami to the exquisite beauty of the cherry blossoms in Japan, Kento's music embraces our sense of wonder and emotion.
Kento's presence online and the availability of his music through sources such as iTunes, Spotify, and BBC Music
