INNOBASSION: REGULAR MEMBERS
Kousuke is a talented man. A student of revered drummer Bobby Campbell and a diligent practitioneer who has big ears (musically speaking), the memory of an Elephant, learns quickly and can play an ecclectic mix of styles! The ideal candidate for Duality.
KAYOKO YUASA: Trombone
Kayoko was born in 1982 in Chiba prefecture and was introduced to trombone when at middle school, joining the school band. She went on to study under Osamu Matsumoto at Maundy Music College and since graduating now actively works professionally on sessions and recordings in and around Tokyo. She is currently a member of the fantastic Wuja Bin-Bin band too, a must see act in Japan....in addition to Innobassion of course ;)
YOSHIAKI KAYANO: Trumpet/Flugel
Yoshiaki currently plays numerous sessions, recordings and performances throughout Japan both on Trumpet, Flugel, and Ukelele.
As well as being a professional performer Yoshiaki is also a great teacher.

Danny M's Duality/Innobassion
Duality is Danny's live project; a unique Bass guitar and vocal driven crossover-pop power duo. The duo showcases Danny's unique multi-part bass playing style, fluid horn like solos and bustling grooves. Most songs have no backing tracks or loops as accompaniment, (although a looper is employed on a few); so much of what is heard at live performances is purely just one bass, vocals and drums! Duality's performances and Danny's playing have, despite the band's relatively recent start, been dubbed as "high level", with vocals likened to Sting, solo phrasing and scat style to George Benson, and general style as eclectic and enthusing with appeal to a wider audience and age range. The energy, sheer technique, coordination and dedication that goes into Duality performances makes it exciting to watch. Many bassists have their party trick pieces, but Duality's premise is not about party pieces, it's about playing musical (not necessarily technical, or fast), parts simultaneously with vocals. With over two hours worth of material that's a lot of different stuff going on with many textures achieved by employing various techniques such as harmonics, tapping, slapping, classical techniques, chordal playing, and more.
Danny M's Innobassion is an extension of Duality hat includes additional horns as detailed below left..

A brief history of Duality/Innobassion
Duality was formed in August 2011 when Danny happened upon Kousuke's drumming skills after auditioning a few candidates for this unique and challenging project.
Kousuke had little experience live, however, had definite talent and ability in a broad range of styles which was exactly what Danny was after. The match was ideal for Danny as his ambition to play live multi-bass parts and sing simultaneously is a dream rekindled, and one that requires much practice. So, working with Kousuke meant growing and developing musically and in skill, and learning together. In late 2012 Duality teamed up with trumpeter extrodinaire, Yoshiaki Kayano, and have since played a number of shows with him.
Horns are being added, with the advent of Yoshiaki inviting guest Trombonist Kayoko Yuasa of the fantastic Wuja Bin Bin band, who absolutely tore it up on her first gig with Duality with NO rehearsal whatsoever. Now that these excellent musicians are joining us we decided to rename the collective to "Innobassion" as the Dual part from Duality no longer applies! This name also reflects Danny's unusual and unorthodox multi-part bass playing style.
