Artist Discovery: Kazusa (和紗)January 27, 2011
The first time I saw Kazusa was when I was looking through newly released albums during November. I finally decided to take a listen to her in December when I was checking her out in Last.fm. I listen to her debut album Kimi to Deatta Sono Hi Kara and its a great starting point to start listening to her.
Kazusa Yuasa was born on July 2, 1989 in Kyoto, Japan. Her stage name is her last name, Kazusa. Kazusa was surrounded by music due to her father, who was a drummer, and she was influenced by him for music. She learned to play the piano at the age of three. When Kazusa was in elementary school, she had a dream of being a singer and joined her school’s choir. In high school, she formed a girl group called CanCan, however when she graduated they disbanded. After high school, Kazusa performed with E-Pro and was under the name Kazusa with E-Pro until she met her current producer, Kawaguichi Daisuke. Kazusa was signed with Sony Music Entertainment and made her major debut with her single, “Aitakute”, which was used as the theme song for the TV and radio program Oishii no Uta.
