...STORY...
I love music.
I love any type of music I feel nice.
When I just make songs and sing a song, I can be what I am naturally.
because I had a lot of time to be alone when I was young. and I liked that time to be alone...it means...I could have much time to image my original world in my mind. it was like a movie with BGM and that was a game in my younger days.
about where I can sing... I don't care for a place to sing if you have really interest of my songs or voice.
The most important thing for me is the "feeling".

But I had a complex of my voice.
Most of the days in my childhood, teachers, classmates, and others were picking of me about my voice
It was for so long time(since when I was born untill 18year-old).
because at that time my voice was completely different with the voice I have now.
It means...i got an opperation on my throat due to illness when I was 22 years old.

and other problems.
I met so many bad and unlucky happenings in my past.
I was the victim of an attempted murder and sexual things which the police participated.
and those happenings were completely from strangers and in daytime.
When this happened, people were walking on the street but nobody helped me.
After that, I was getting powerless to live, but I tried hard to smile because it brings good luck or a kind of happiness.

and the last one.
some of my family died.
As a result of that huge damage and hurts in my heart, I became voiceless for 1 month.

I was scared of the world outside so much.
I couldn't believe in anyone.

Nowadays I still don't know if I recovered or not from those damage.
Even now I am feeling scared of person and walking on the street.
But surely my personality is getting stronger through such experiences in my past.

through such years...
music was always by my side.
music helped me and released my heart when I was so scared of the world outside and hid in my room alone.
I naturally played original music that I made in my head, so I tried to make songs on my own, with my own words, my personal feeling and my thoughts.
That was not only for myself, also for friends, family, and so on...

Now I am going to make and sing songs
for helping something, for making you relaxed, for making your heart released.

That is my dream.
