I’m Lidian, an electric bass player in Tokyo, Japan. I’m originally from Amsterdam, the Netherlands.

In addition to music, I’ve worked as a lawyer specializing in intellectual property.

I’ve been making music for over 20 years, starting with drums and classical guitar. At 14, I picked up the electric bass and I never looked back. I graduated from the ArtEZ School of Music in 2014.

In the Netherlands, I played with various coverbands, as well as doing original work with HILIN, the Richard Hebly Tribute Band, and others.
