MUSICIAN Born:

Emi Takada

Born in Sapporo, Japan, Emi Takada began singing at age of 10 in the local renowned Boys and Girls Choral Group. She was moved by being able to communicate with others through music, which transcends all borders. Living overseas for a long time, she continued singing classical music, chanson and a variety of different genres. In 2010, she encountered jazz in New York City where she studied with vocalist Marion Cowings and started her career as a jazz vocalist. After that, she was based on Houston, performing with pianist Bob Henschen, and having live shows in NYC, Tokyo and Sapporo. Her singing has been praised for her transparent, gentle voice quality and overflowing emotion. In November 2014, released her first CD album “I’m All Smiles” (recorded in Houston). In 2017, she moved back in Tokyo. In May 2018, released her second CD album “Why Did I Choose You?” (recorded in NYC)
