After the break-up of band Bridge, guitarist SHIMIZU Hirotaka went on to sing with a band called The PLUMs which didn't do any notable release. Around 1997, he started a solo career during which he released 5 maxi-singles and one album ("kaze no yukue ~Blow Wind~"). In 2000 he formed a band called Ash-Ray with drummer ARAKI Yuko (mi-gu) and together they released one maxi-single, titled "Nothing's Gonna Change My Way".
Recently, Shimmy (his nickname) has been playing guitar and bass on stage and in studio, in support of artists including Cornelius and Chocolat & Akito. He has also written and produced songs for Heaco and other artists.
