After several years of singing covers, it's exciting to finally be recording my own material.
Like many, I was very much influenced by the music my family was listening to while growing up: The Cure, Pink Floyd, The Pretenders, Bread, The Eagles, Mantovani, Andy Williams, Tom Jones, Tony Christie.. I also discovered my own favourites: The Stranglers, Rush, Nirvana and Megadeth to name a few..
Not so surprisingly I started off as a Rock singer - in bars and clubs around Tokyo. After a long break during which I was kept busy with translation and voiceover work, I came back to singing about 4 years ago, this time trying my hand at Jazz at a friend's suggestion.
I prefer not to be constrained by any particular genre and draw upon diverse influences from classical through to heavy metal and beyond.
Lyrically speaking, I enjoy playing with imagery and abstraction on Electronica tracks, while employing a more straighforward style for Jazz and Pop numbers.
Thank you very much for stopping by and I hope you enjoy my music.
