Gen Hoshino is a Japanese singer-songwriter, actor, and writer. He started the instrumental band SAKEROCK in 2000, officially kickstarting his professional career as a musician. After leading the group, Gen would later debut as a solo artist in 2010. In 2018, he released his 5th album, “POP VIRUS,” a commercial success with sales of around 600,000 copies and downloads. Following the success of his album, he held a nationwide tour across Japan, boasting nearly 330 million attendees. While the music that Gen produces is influenced from music around the world, it does not merely imitate or copy them. Instead, he incorporates influences unique to his Japanese upbringing, allowing him to create brand-new, cutting-edge sounds and music that continue to shake up the Japanese music scene. Both in name and reality, Gen Hoshino is set to be one of Japan’s top era-defining artists and a star to look out for for years to come.  

Mark Ronson is an internationally renowned DJ and five-time-Grammy-Award-winning and Golden Globe-winning artist and producer.

Ronson spent the first eight years of his life growing up in London, England before moving with his family to New York City.  Already a keen student of music, and a huge fan of hip hop, he was 16 when he first began creating mixtapes and trying his hand at DJing. That early passion set him on a path to music production, recording and songwriting that has resulted in a career highlighted by work on a multi Grammy-winning album by Amy Winehouse, as well as his own Grammy-winning, global smash hit with Bruno Mars, “Uptown Funk.”  Along with releasing four successful albums under his own name, his resume includes production work for some of music’s biggest names, including Adele, Paul McCartney, Duran Duran and Lily Allen. More recently, he helmed Lady Gaga’s acclaimed fifth album, Joanne and Queens Of The Stone Age’s lauded Villains. This year he released a string of singles with Diplo under the name Silk City, including the current world wide hit “Electricity” with Dua Lipa, which earned him a Grammy nomination for “Best Dance Recording” in 2018.

He is a co-writer of the song “Shallow”, recorded by Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper for the movie A Star Is Born, for which he earned a Golden Globe Award for “Best Original Song,” as well as two Grammy nominations.

Most recently Mark collaborated with Miley Cyrus on the hit song, “Nothing Breaks Like A Heart,” the first single off his upcoming fifth album, which will be released in 2019. Since its release in late November the track has garnered 84 million streams and more than 36 million video views.  The pair performed the song together on SNL in December.

He is currently based in Los Angeles where he operates his record label, Zelig Records, home to fast rising star King Princess. To date, Ronson has 5 Grammy Awards, 2 Brit Awards, 1 Golden Globe Award and 1 MTV VMA Award to his name.
