Chie is a New York-trained international sensation, performing to dozens of
packed houses a year. Her unique phrasing and soulful playing is adored by
millions of fans.
Influenced by her parents' hobbies, Chie has been surrounded by jazz and
Hollywood movies from an early age. She first studied classical piano but soon
began to swing, and grew up as a kid that always preferred gospel to psalms.
When she was 17 years old, she scraped together all the money she had saved from
part-time jobs and left for the land of dreams; the U.S. West Coast.
After marrying, giving birth then divorcing her husband, she moved back to Japan
in 1991. She began to sing in a jazz club in Osaka. Thanks to rumors of her
vocal performance she soon made a name for herself in the local jazz scene.
The June 1998 release "For All We Know" marked Chie's debut as a professional
jazz musician at the age of 40. Since then Chie has been touring regularly
across Japan. With the help of fans spreading the word via the internet she
managed to establish a reputation as an outstanding female singer. Soon her
concerts were sold out as soon as they were announced.
In March 2001, Chie received the 51st Ministry of Education and Science Cultural
Promotional Award. Harboring an aversion against settling for one thing, Chie
has been exploring territories outside the realm of jazz. Her repertory extends
from 20's swing jazz to the rock pop standards.
