Hirama was interested in music since he was a child, and soon, after he turned 15, he got involved in bands. In the beginning he intended to pursue a solo career, so he moved to Tokyo. Then he started releasing his solo songs on an independent label. He entered the indies chart CRJ often. At the same time he began participating as a guitarist at many studio sessions, and later became a professional support memberist. In 2003, he played guitar with Shiina Ringo on her Sugoroku Ecstasy tour. Later that year, he joined Shiina Ringo's new band, Tokyo Jihen. In July 2005, Hirama left Tokyo Jihen to focus on his solo activities (though it was rumoured because of a soured relationship between Shiina Ringo and himself).

In 2001, he recorded and produced his own album, Yume to Negoto. This was re-released in 2004 and handed out at Tokyo Jihen's Dynamite! tour. Later, this album was re-released yet again in 2006.
