Born in Fukuoka, Japan to a military family who moved around the globe; Anime Girl's first musical influences were the R&B & Funk music of her older brother, the classical and opera of her Father, and the 60's rock and folk of her Mother.
Anime Girl the New Beat Poet, is a fusion of atmospheric electronic soundscapes mixed together with the vocal delivery ranging from rhythmic spoken word neo-beat poetry, soulful vocals, and ethereal modern opera.
The powerful and rich tone of her voice mixed with emotionally charged lyrics will captivate any listener. Whether she's singing about love, societal issues, or reflecting on childhood fears, one thing is for sure, you will feel that she means what she's singing.
Another interesting aspect of this project is the choice to call each CD project a "Chapter" in her alter-ego; "Anime Girl's" life. Building each chapter around subjects to give each album a life of it's own.
