Masumi

Masumi is a singer-songwriter who lives in Wajima City, in the Noto region of Ishikawa, Japan. She began playing guitar in high school and, soon after, started to write and perform her own songs. Masumi writes melodic music that is strongly influenced by pop and rock. Her texts are nostalgic and express her individuality. Since 2011 she organises the annual "Michikusa Live" acoustic music event in Noto, which, on the 27th of September 2015 celebrated its 5th anniversary. In 2012 Masumi wrote "Hana no Youni". An acoustic version of this song, played and sung by Masumi herself, is the theme song of the independent film "Suzu no Jii-chan". On the 18th of October 2015 Masumi released her first mini-album "Story" on her own Sakura Music Records label and held a solo concert to mark the occasion.
