In 1993, Fukuoka started performing his songs accompanying his voice either with the piano or the guitar at live shows in Tokyo. Fukuoka's original model guitars "ESP Cross Angel" and "ESP Requiem" were created by ESP in 1999 and 2009 respectively. Since then, the guitars have been exhibited several times at the Musical Instruments Fair in Tokyo, at the NAMM Show in LA and at MusicMesse in Frankfurt. The media took interest in these two uniquely shaped guitars making favorable remarks about the ESP brand and Fukuoka's design. Now, Keiichi Fukuoka is active as event planner and producer.

The vocals are performed by Kumiko Mouri, who is also a song writer and a composer. Since 1989, Mouri's original compositions, along with vocal sessions for other authors, have been released on 16 CDs with 6 major labels and 3 independent ones such as Polydor Records, Vap inc., MCA Victor, Universal Victor, Sony Records, Teichiku Records, Vivid Sounds and others.
