Summer is a slow time in the music industry. Artists are either on tour, vacation, or generally hiding from the spotlight. Some go to the beach, some stay at home watching Netflix and generally chilling. But no one is like Sturgill Simpson who is winning the hearts and minds of the Japanese people one karaoke song at a time.
Simpson has been posting on Instagram non-stop since his arrival in Japan a week before his show at the Fuji Rock Festival in Nigata on July 30th. He is on a whirlwind tour of the country, promoting his music and sampling the local flavor. He seems particularly fond of Japan’s karaoke bars.
His whole timeline is spectacular, and he appears to be having the time of his life.
Yeah, I’m gonna need some ninja boots as well, pls.
