Sad sad news. HearJapan updated with the following information.
HearJapan regrets to inform fans of Kaya that HearJapan will no longer be selling music from Kaya. Kaya’s label, Next Media Communications, inc. filed for bankruptcy today. Due to the severity of the economic situation, they will cease all sales of music already created and close shop entirely. As a result there is no one for HearJapan to pay the big portion of the royalties to so we must stop distribution of Kaya’s releases. There is no confirmation on how this will effect the performer’s future career, however before the bankruptcy was announced, Kaya had switched to Universal Music however was still managed by the now bankrupt label.
I am glad Kaya moved to Universal but we’ll have to wait and see how his management and handling change. Damn, the economic crisis effects many.
