Shihori is an artist

that should serve as an inspiration to all.

Shihori blends her exquisite

voice with future bass, pop,

and EDM flavors to generate

a dazzling indie-pop treasure brimming with visceral energy.

 It’s an avant-garde anthem where the siren-like vocals of Shihori channel the art of self-love and turning what may be considered

as disability into an

empowering source. 

In the final minute, 

Perfect Imperfections hits

a high note of dynamic talent,

with Shihori’s vocals blaring

like fireworks in an

afternoon sky.

Singer & Songwriter, Pianist and Actress, based in LA


SHIHORI is an international pop singer/songwriter from Japan who composes and performs solo work, as well as music for film, TV, anime and games. 


She’s best known for her collaborations with Yoko Kanno (Cowboy Bebop, Ghost in The Shell: Stand Alone Complex) and Kohei Tanaka (One Piece). She has written and composed over 100 songs for her home country’s best known contemporary artists such as Nana Mizuki, Momoiro Clover Z, Buono!, and for such famed shows as Fairy Tail, My Little Pony, Macross Frontier and The Irregular at Magic High School.


Many of her releases have made the Oricon Chart in Japan with 11 of her hits having attained Gold Disc Certification. Her 3rd single “Never End Wonderland” which released after her debut in 2007 under the pseudonym “Sena,” is her most personally meaningful achievement and ranked #5 and #8 on the Oricon Singles Daily and Weekly charts, in 2009.


Born deaf in one ear (but with perfect pitch in the other) and with Asperger Syndrome, she serves as both an inspiration and ambassador for people struggling with disabilities. Her main mission through her music and life is, “to spread love” since it’s her belief all problems and solutions in life connect to this core value.


In 2018 she moved to the U.S. where she’s performed extensively and has recently enjoyed international success performing lead vocals on composer Mason Lieberman’s charity single “The Real Folk Blues” (#6 on the Billboard World Digital Chart). She also composed and performed the “Battle Queens 2020” theme song for the popular game League of Legends (over 1 million Spotify streams).


Shihori has released one EP and multiple singles in America and her music video “Invisible” was awarded “Best Dance Music Video,” “Best Actress” and “Honorable Mention Best Love Song Music Video” at the Rome Music Video Awards. Other awards include “Best Music Video” at the Aber International Film Festival and “Honorable Mention Best Asian Music Video” at the Euro Music Video Song Awards.


Her recently released first full album “Mutation” (2021) represents her journey of personal change and transcendence in the next evolution of herself.
