Insheart is a Japanese musical duo consisting of two practicing doctors (one a psychiatrist and the other a plastic surgeon) who pursue their musical activities based in the city of Fukuoka, Japan. They began their activities together in January 2015 out of a desire to not just provide medical treatment in order to cure the body, but to help ease the heart and soul as well through music. The duo chose the name Insheart, representing a desire to find a way “inside your heart.” They pursue their musical activities during their time off from working as doctors.

The Origin of Name[edit]

The duo chose the name Insheart, representing a desire to find a way "inside your heart".

Brief History[edit]

They met at a meeting of the Light Music Club while attending Nagasaki University School of Medicine. They became doctors and began working at different hospitals. They noticed that while the bodies of their patients began to heal, sometimes their hearts and souls did not. They thought that music might be way to heal the heart and soul, so they formed a duo they named Insheart and began their musical activities together.
2015
In January they began musical activities. In April they won a prize at an audition hosted by Shimamura Music. In July they won the second place prize at the Wild Bunch Festival in Japan. In November they won the Grand Prix at a Universal Music audition for new artists. In December they released the first album "Hitomi No Naka No Anata".
2016
In January they were introduced in NHK television program by Masashi Sada. In August they presented a lecture at Seiun Academy Junior High School. In November they performed "Oba-achan No Nokoshimono" (What Grandmother Left Behind) for the first time in public at Nagasaki University School of Medicine, a song produced after listening to the memories of actual victims of the atomic bombs. They released the second album "Anata Ga Umarete" (You are Born).
2017
In February they released the third album "Obachan No Nokoshimono" (What Grandmother Left Behind).
2018
A television program about their activities produced by Television Nagasaki was nominated for a Fuji Network System Documentary Prize. They went on national tour.
2019
In February they released the fourth album "Watashi He No Sayonara" (Good-bye to Me). In February-March they went on national tour. In October they performed English version of "Obachan No Nokoshimono" (What Grandmother Left Behind) in public for the first time in New York during WHO Mental Health Day. In November they produced the theme song for the movie "Inochi Sukecchi" (Sketch of Life), which was modeled after a zoo in the city of Omuta in Fukuoka Prefecture, Japan.

They began managing an independent label to produce music with themes such as life and family bonds. They released CDs (one single and three albums), and their activities include performing at various festivals, holding volunteer live concerts at hospitals and other facilities, and delivering lectures and performances at schools and other locations. In addition, they are very active on SNS and hold online live concerts at the weekends entitled "Weekends are Live with Insheart".
