CHIHIRO is a musical visionary from Kumamoto, Japan who dedicates herself to writing songs that smoothly transform into cinematic and unforgettable pop pieces.  Her solo music style is expressed as Classy-Pop, a mixture of classical and pop music. CHIHIRO’s piano performance brings classical elements while her voice reinforces her introspective lyrics which moves the audience to experience a series of emotions that we have all felt at one point or another.

CHIHIRO has performed live in many of the premier club venues in the Toronto area and just released her first mini album “Box of Pearls”. With her kind and generous spirit she is sure to make a lot of new friends and fans along the way.



熊本県出身で、幼少からクラシックピアノを学び、アニメをたくさん見て育ったちひろは、独自のジャンルClassy-Popの音楽を創っている。トロントにて演奏活動を始めた彼女は、類まれの音楽のタレントと前向きな姿勢によって、何もないところから、現地にあるピアノバー、ブルースバー、オープンマイクのホスト、ローカル詩人への曲提供、ソロライブや各種イベントにての演奏の機会をつかんできた。彼女の創り出す音楽は、温かみのあるリッチなコントラルトの歌声と、圧倒されるピアノパフォーマンスとマッチして心に響く。ポップス、クラシック、ジャズやブルースのテイストなどバラエティに富むスタイルを楽しめる。最近初めてのミニアルバム『真珠箱』をリリース(2017年8月)。バンドCHIHIRO & The Bluenotesと一緒に、トロントでライブ活動を行っている。

The Bluenotes is CHIHIRO’s backing band, which consists of vocals, piano, bass and drums. Together the band creates energetic rhythmic Pop-Rock sound-beds that support and propel CHIHIRO’s vocals and piano melodies into an aural energy that hints of Chopin, Joe Hisaishi and The Pink Panther theme song. Check out her upcoming shows!
