CHIHIRO NAGAMATSU / 永松 ちひろ
CHIHIRO is a musical visionary from Kumamoto, Japan who dedicates herself to writing songs that smoothly transform into cinematic and unforgettable pop pieces. She immigrated to Canada in 2017 and actively works in Toronto, Ontario. She is a member of the Screen Composers Guild of Canada since 2019.
She grew up learning classical piano, singing folk songs with her father, while watching a lot of Japanese anime and manga. She describes that later they shaped her own music style “classy-pop”, a mixture of classical and pop ensemble with a hint of jazz. CHIHIRO’s piano performance brings the classical elements that she grew up with, while her voice moves the audience to experience a wide array of emotions.
CHIHIRO has performed live in many of the premier club venues in the Toronto area such as Horseshoe Tavern and Lee’s Palace. After graduating the audio production program at Harris Institute, she started to work in recording, mixing and producing, and collaborating with musicians and other artists. As she is always a passionate composer, with her musical/sound sensitive mind, CHIHIRO works on composing and arranging for films and commercial videos. Moving and playful. Her compassionate soul enables her to create a variety of amazing music, often in the styles of classical, orchestra, jazz, blues, pop and rock, scores from light ambient BGM to large scale productions.
