After that, he went on to college and joined the light music club. There he began to compose with the guitar for the first time and met Kyuuzitsu Kachyo, the bassist of “Gesu no Kiwami Otome.” After graduating from university, “indigo la End” was formed.

Another band of his, “Gesu no Kiwami Otome.” Is composed of four support members: vocal, guitar, bass, keyboard, and drums, and two support members for chorus and keyboard.

Two Japanese comedians belong to this band. “ichikoro” consists of three guitars, a bass, a keyboard, and drums. This band is instrumental.
He has a uniquely beautiful and delicate voice. His singing style suddenly changes from a male range to a beautiful high-tone voice like a woman. In recent years he has done voice training to make his voice even more beautiful and accurate. His voice is mesmerizing.
Finally, Kawatani has a great talent for writing lyrics from a female perspective, as well as a talent for composing great lyrics, from beautiful ballads to intense rock. No one can imitate his sensibility, which is highlighted in the song “Aiirosukisa.” Please listen to Kawatani when you have a chance. You won't be disappointed.
