I got to know this singer-songwriter a couple of years ago when an ex-colleague who is also a jazz drummer connected us. Reason being that this girl was looking to move to Japan and having been writing original songs in both English and Japanese, that former colleague thought I could give her a hand in whatever way since I live in Japan.
When I first heard that she’s from Australia, I had imagined a native Aussie girl going after her dreams but later learned that she was born in Singapore and her family migrated to Australia when she was still a child. I watched a few of her Youtube videos and found that she had nice vocals, but I was more impressed with the number of views on her videos.
In any case, she’s been having a number of live events around Osaka (refer to schedule in the image above), so if you’ve got time, do drop by and have a listen. You might become a fan.
