There's a lot of evidences that proves this artist real name is Naoki Kaneda.

First, his blog's address is http://members3.jcom.home.ne.jp/n_kaneda/index2.html

Second, in the profile section you can read this: "1992年、某ゲーム会社にサウンドとして入社。5年近く経った頃に
 他のゲーム会社に移る。その後プーを経て、某Hゲー会社に潜り込む。"
which it means he began to work for a certain company in 1992. He worked for this company only during five years. Look at Kaneda's vgmdb profile and the years he worked for Falcom.

Third, and the most important thing. Looking at the first booklet page of Quilt Clover's Jazz you can see his real name (金田直樹) in the comments section.


KIM's SOUNDROOM is Naoki Kaneda

I don't know if that's evidence that KIM's SOUNDROOM == Naoki Kaneda. It could be that KIM's SOUNDROOM is a unit, and Naoki is one member of that unit. We see this kind of designation a lot, especially on H-games.

Naoki Kaneda is credited as "Producer" for Tail Tale with his real name. He might have produced Quilt as well.
Tail Tale's music was by KIM's SOUNDROOM. Lyrics for the theme song are by KIM & KAZ.

One way to interpret this is the unit conisted of KIM & KAZ back in the day and Naoki Kaneda produced the game with his real name at the same time.
The problem is we have plenty of information about KIM but almost none about Naoki Kaneda.

edit: It would be cool though 'cause I could go around and say I loved his music way before people found out about his JDK past.


edit2: There is some reference regarding KIM also working on Brandish Midi Collection (and the name associated with Naoki Kaneda).
