The magazine Swing Journal described him as “one of the most remarkable young Jazz musicians.” After moving to the U.S. in 1997 Motoshi taught himself harp, and ten years later won the second place in Lyon & Healy International Jazz & Pop Harp Competition, and was named "Best Jazz Hound in Tie and Tail" by Sacramento Magazine.
