Debuted on a Japanese CD with "Hear Me", the first self-produced work that even wrote and arranged songs. Released a handmade music video "I Am You".

As a model, she appeared in Mac Fan Cover Girl and Lotte "Xylitol Gum" commercials. Actively active, such as singing the CM song (cover of Eurythmics) for Kao Sofina "Primavista". It became a hot topic as a new type of home recording girl who handles not only music but also video.

MACHINA is derived from the ancient Greek word "Deus ex machina" to mean "an artist who creates new music".


Formed 15 years ago, a four-member singer who sings do-ups and disco songs, centered on oldies.

The formation started when friends who met at the bar started a cappella and sang at a party, which caused a great response.

Continuing group activities while having their own main business, they have appeared in many events such as the annual dinner show at the hotel, the Yokohama Jazz Promenade, and the Shinbashi SL Square Christmas Illuminations Festa. It creates a time that adults can enjoy.

Yukihiro Takahashi, Haruomi Hosono, Yasuaki Shimizu, Kazumi Watanabe, Yasuharu Konishi and others have produced a number of original songs with roots in Japanese pop, popular songs, and new music.
Since 2005, he has added solo singers Tsuya Tomohiko and Lemon to the two current members, and has been pursuing the fusion of Japanese pop songs and chorus work freely.

Their original songs continue to be sung by many a cappella groups.

In May, a new song was added to the album "SING LIKE CHILDREN", and the complete version "SING LIKE CHILDREN Complete" was released from Universal Music Japan.
