    The 57th Grammy Award Ceremony
April 16th 2014, Masuda released 8th album “Loved One”. Produced by Kento Masuda and Gary Vandy, recorded at Gary Vandy’s Studio Center in Miami, which has produced recordings that have won 8 Grammy awards along with multiple platinum albums. “Loved One” will capture its listeners with its timeless melodies. To quote Kento “When you touch someone with your spirit in turn they touch your soul with their heart.” Kento’s music defines his spirit and will certainly touch the hearts and souls of all who hear his music.

On November 14, 2014, Masuda, along with Japanese singer/songwriter/harpist Luna Hiroko Tsuji, multi-instrumentalist and composer Fabius Constable, soprano Donatella Bortone, and Lebanese and Arab lutist Ghazi Makhoul, performed in the dynamic and multi-cultural concert “5 ELEMENTS LIVE” at CASA DEI DIRITTI in Milan, Italy. This unique evening of music connected the sounds and voices of the east and west, while producers and collaborators Masuda and Constable shared their vision that music is both absolute and life affirming.

On December 6, 2014, Masuda performed at the “Associazione dei Cavalieri di San Silvestro” celebration of Monumentalis Ecclesiae Sancti Silvestri Societas in Tivoli, Italy at which he was honored with the title of “Maestro,” an accolade awarded by Monsignor Luigi Casolini to the Knights of the Order of St. Sylvester gentlemen, who are distinguished for their contributions of both musical genius and for charities.

On February 8th, 2015, Kento Masuda, along with artist and performer Luna Hiroko Tsuji, attended the prestigious 57th GRAMMYs in Los Angeles, California. Kento had four official submissions for the 57th GRAMMY consideration from his latest album, “Loved One”, produced by Kento and Gary Vandy.
