Tokio Myers fuses classical piano, electronica and percussive influences to shatter boundaries between musical genres.
As Classic BRITS 'Breakthrough Artist of the Year', Tokio Myers is gaining recognition as one of the most dynamic talents to emerge from the UK. The multi-instrumentalist fuses classical piano, electronica and percussive influences to shatter boundaries between musical genres. As an ex scholar of the Royal College of Music in London Tokio went on to become a session musician for Kanye West, the late Amy Winehouse, Mr. Hudson and The Library, The Police and Sting, performing on international stadium tours.
Since then, Tokio captivated the nation with his appearances on Britain's Got Talent, showcasing his skills as a composer, producer and performance artist. After winning the show he signed a recording contract with Simon Cowell at Syco Entertainment and was invited to perform on the Royal Variety Show broadcast to a global audience of over 150 million. Tokio co-produced the Artists for Grenfell charity single in support of The London Community Foundation, his highly acclaimed debut album released in 2017 titled 'Our Generation' was BRIT Certified GOLD and reached #4 in the UK album charts, (the first pianist to achieve this since the legendary Robert Miles). Tokio has performed twice with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra at the Royal Albert Hall and delivered sold-out UK and Ireland tours in 2018 and 2019, selling out prestigious venues including Printworks, The Shepherds Bush Empire and the O2 Forum. He has also performed sell-out shows at Edinburgh Festival, supported by Radio 2 and BBC Sounds.
Other successes include international festivals, performing to a sold-out audience at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas, appearing on NBC's America's Got Talent 2019 as guest artist twice, collaborating with Stuart Copland (drummer from The Police), Brand and Sync partnerships with Rolls Royce, Formula 1, Vodafone, The Princes Trust, Sky, ITV and many more. Tokio also produced the official anthem for the Commonwealth Games 2018, recording and filming with a full symphony orchestra at Abbey Road Studios.
Tokio's widely anticipated second album titled 'Our Generation II' is due for release in 2023. This will include an array of cinematic, electronic and classical piano.
