Born in Japan 1989.1.17
Ray is a singer song writer based in Tokyo, Japan.
Lived in Australia in her early childhood, she began to take interest in music and the songs she remembered there still remains in her heart. Long before “words” were born, we connected with each other simply by “Voice”. Living in a place where “words” become a barrier, she believes that our “voice” itself is the key for human connection. Expressing through “songs and keeping in mind the beauty of Japanese and English sound holds, she hopes her voice becomes unforgettable for the listeners. She knows that “forget” and “bury” are the human nature. That’s why she wants something “unforgettable”a

1989年(平成元年) 1月17日生まれ山羊座のa型。
幼少時代をオーストラリアで過ごし、そこで覚えた数々のうたが今でも彼女の心に残っている。言葉が生まれるずっと前から“声”というシンプルなだけど唯一の持ち物で人は繋がっていたのだと、言葉が通じない異国で学んだコミュニケーション手段を、今も追及している。 “うた”という表現方法と“声”の持つ音色、日本語、英語それぞれの言葉の持つ美しい響きを大切に、優しい優しいうたがうたいたいと日々願っています。
