Kyoko Oyobe is a pianist and composer from Japan. She started playing piano at the age of four. At the age of 17, her mother started inviting famous Japanese musicians such as Terumasa Hino to have the concerts at her parents' house. At the age of 19, she was greatly inspired by the one of Hino's live performances and began playing jazz piano. In 2005, she moved to New York and started performing with her own band.
It has been Oyobe's pleasure to perform at such great venues as The Kitano, Smalls, the Blue Note, Fat Cat, and other clubs in New York City, Japan, and Paris. She has performed with wonderful musicians like Tom Harrell, Joe Magnarelli, Clifford Barbaro, Chris Parker, Saul Rubin, Michael O'Brien, and more. Her musical collaborators and audiences say that she created her original unique sound in music.
