Adult Contemporary/Synth Pop
Kai spent her late teens in a blues band where she developed her soulful vocal expressions and learned to play guitar. She later began her own musical venture with lead guitarist and producer Makoto of Yokohama City, Japan, and in 1999 released an unofficial record under the band name ORENDA. In 2004, Kai started a solo project and recorded a demo with producer Stuart Richardson. In 2006, she joined the jazz psychedelic group HOLIDAY. Although never performing live, the experience peaked her interest in jazz and the use of electronic sound loops. The following year she formed a trio called DAZY LOVE, combining her own electronic creations with poetry, soulful singing, and exotic dance. Although short-lived, this journey inspired The Hat Trix Project (THTP), a collective combining both electronic and organic music, poetry, art, and dance. This venture further developed Kai's creativity through the meshing of world music with classical elements and led to her first release as a producer (HatTrix Volume One). While on a break from this venture, Kai put focus on the release of her solo record. Her self-titled debut consists of ten tracks combining electronic sound waves with smooth vocal prowess. Release Date: Summer, 2010.
