Vocalist of the legendary rock band T-BOLAN. Born in Hiroshima, Japan in 1965, he writes lyrics, composes, and arranges music. T-BOLAN debuted in July 1991. In just four years, the band had sold a total of 17 million records. Their second single, "Hanashitaku wa nai (I Don't Want to Let Go)" was an exceptional bestseller. Since their major label debut, they have had numerous hits, including signature songs like "Bye For Now," "Jirettai Ai (Vexing Love)," and "Maria," and continue to be known as a "legendary band" representing the 1990s. In 1994, Moritomo suffered from a voice disorder of unknown origin and was unable to sing for awhile. In December 1999, T-BOLAN temporarily disbanded. In November 2009, he restarted his music career as a solo artist under the name "Arashi Moritomo." In 2012, he started live dedication performances at shrines and temples such as Enryakuji Temple on Mt. Hiei, Kodaiji Temple in Kyoto, and Itsukushima Shrine in Hiroshima with "Otokotachi no Utage (Men's Banquet)." He also sang the image song for the Tendai Sect's Grand Memorial Service for the Patriarch's Precepts. In 2013, T-BOLAN was appointed as the "Hieizan Goodwill Ambassador." T-BOLAN reunited in 2017 in response to the enthusiastic support from their fans. The band has been very successful adapting to constraints caused by COVID-19, combining a nationwide tour with a successful live streaming of their performances.
