Biography

In her hometown of Miyazaki, Kyushima Misachi had made a promise that she would become a singer. Surprisingly, Misachi had very weak lungs as a child due to bad asthma, but when her parents read in the paper that folk music is good for asthma, she began singing. Misachi loved living in Miyazaki and was soon singing to the mountain by her home daily. Participating in contests throughout her school life, Misachi won first place in 6th year elementary and first year junior high. By the time she was in high school, Misachi was fully devoted to folk music.

After high school ended, Misachi was 18 and working as a beautician. Whenever the stress of work got to her, she would sing to herself and feel better. The one thing she wanted to do before she died was sing so that everybody could hear her voice. She quit work at 21 and became a street performer in Miyazaki.

Misachi moved from Miyazaki to Tokyo at 23 to begin her professional solo music career. She finally debuted in winter of 2005 with the pop/rock ballad Missing You, and three months later her first album was released. After a seven month period of no releases, Misachi released her third single Ihoujin, a cover of the 1979 hit by Kubota Saki. None of her releases reached the Oricon charts.

    I hope so but it looks pretty quiet at the moment. :/ Nothing is anounced and she is also not very active at all, not only music wise. Too bad, i want something new. ._.
