Ai Higuchi ヒグチアイ




Born the first year of the Heisei era. Singer/songwriter. She entered this world in Kagawa, was raised in Nagano and came to Tokyo for school. Her musical studies began at the age of 2 with classical piano and quickly expanded to include violin, drums, guitar and voice training. When she turned 18, she decided to concentrate on the keyboard. Her melodious and high-speed piano riffs perfectly complement an alto voice that climbs relentlessly. Becoming one with the piano, she wrenches passion from it, yet at times illustrating an exquisite grace, fear and the light that appears from loss. Her unique insight allows her to compose lyrics that heighten drama in scenes from everyday life, much like a short story. Central to her core is a self-affirming desire that can never be satisfied. The gorgeous quality of her music and infectious enthusiasm continuously add to her legion of fans.

平成元年生まれ。シンガーソングライター。 生まれは香川、育ちは長野、大学進学のため上京し、東京在住。 2歳のころからピアノを習い、その後ヴァイオリン・合唱・声楽・ドラム・ギターなどを経験、様々な音楽に触れる。 18歳より鍵盤弾き語りをメインとして活動を開始。 メロディアスな高速ピアノリフに乗せた、まっすぐに伸びるアルトヴォイス。 ピアノと一体になった小さな身体から振り絞られる熱情が、時にたおやかな美しさを、時に心かきむしられる焦燥を、時に喪失の中の光を描く。 独特の視点で綴る歌詞世界は、ありふれた日常の風景を短編小説のようにドラマチックに昇華させる。 音楽性の高さ以上に、叱咤激励にも似たその歌声は、老若男女問わずじわじわと中毒者を増やし続けている。
