After what appeared to fans to be a long break -- only one song done with SoulJa ("Gekkou") in June 2010 and one new song release ("Wakusei no Mori") in her 2010 Best Of compilation album One of Pillars 2010, Onitsuka Chihiro has returned with her newest release Aoi Tori on April 6. She will continue with her sixth album Ken to Kaede, to be released April 20.
Known for her strong and wide ranging vocals, Onitsuka Chihiro appeals to both the younger and older generations of Japan after her early single "Gekkou." She is one of the most popular Japanese female solo artists of the early 2000s. Although her music generally leans towards ballad, folk, and folk-rock, it also has influences from Western music, appealing to a wider audience.
