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.

ABOUT

Shihori
Singer & Songwriter, Pianist and Actress, based in NY 

SHIHORI has been top-notch singer songwriter for over a decade in Japanese pop music industry.

She composes and sings for movies, games, TV commercials and TV anime, including world-famous anime, such as "FAIRY TAIL,” "The Irregular at Magic High School” and "Macross Frontier."

 

Dozens of her songs have made it into the Japanese hit chart, Oricon Chart, and for 11 of them, SHIHORI has received Gold Disc Certification, having sold more than million CDs. 

SHIHORI has collaborated with Kohei Tanaka (composer of anime “ONE PIECE”) and Yoko Kanno (composer of “Ghost in the Shell”). 

Born in Nagoya, Japan, SHIHORI has natural hearing loss in her left ear since birth while having a perfect pitch in her right ear. Additionally, she also had dwarfism and  Asperger Syndrome, she had a very tough childhood because of her disabilities.

 

She started singing at the age of 2 and writing original songs at 7 before starting to receive formal musical education. At the age of 9, SHIHORI began learning classical piano and was immediately enthralled by the piano sonatas by Beethoven, Chopin and Liszt. Her enthusiasm toward the elements of Baroque and Romantic has shaped her music she creates today. 

At the age of 17, SHIHORI decided to become a singer in order to convey the messages of love and peace, and to make the world a better place. She made her first recording at the age of 18. She moved to Tokyo after winning the 1st prize at a vocal audition and started her professional career as a performing/recording singer and as a songwriter.

SHIHORI made her major debut from Anime music label Lantis in 2007. Since then, she has sung numerous Anime and video game songs. As a songwriter, she has provided over 100 songs to various well-known artists. 

 

Mr. Muneo Wakamatsu, former CEO of Sony Music Artists, a legendary music producer, highly praised SHIHORI and commented, "Shihori is the biggest impact since Seiko Matsuda (Japanese legendary pop singer in the 80's) and the genius since Yu-min, aka Yumi Matsutoya (Japanese legendary singer songwriter).” SHIHORI’s performance and voice are often described "to physically shake your heart." 

 

In January 2018, she moved to New York to challenge the bigger ambition and adventure.

SHIHORI has performed at venues and conventions all over the US since then and she has released new songs.
