Sen Morimoto is a multi-instrumentalist composer and songwriter born in Kyoto, Japan and currently based in Chicago. He moved to Massachusetts at a young age where he began a life-long study of jazz saxophone. Horn in hand, Morimoto cut his teeth as a songwriter in the DIY hip-hop community of Western Massachusetts. He eventually moved to Chicago where he refined his sound while maintaining a consistent presence in the music culture by producing for and collaborating with artists including Joseph Chilliams (Pivot Gang), KAINA, Qari, and Nnamdi Ogbonnaya. Morimoto’s powerful grasp of jazz composition, pop songwriting, and hip-hop styling are fully articulated as the extraordinary sound of an unrivaled talent on Cannonball!, an LP that he wrote, arranged, and produced by himself.

Creature of One is a genre-smashing ensemble based out of Lansing, MI. Born out of that sacred space that connects each and every one of us, their music is a testimony of what it is to be human. Formed by a group of multi-instrumentalists and songwriters, they weave a tapestry from the common thread that makes up our combined existence. With the soul of world fusion, the roots of Americana, and the heart of rhythm and bass, they seek to tell the stories that make us who we are — stories that we all share, yet experience in our own unique way. We all move to the sound of the beating heart. We are, all of us, a Creature of One.
