Asami Izawa was born on November 11th, 1982 in Tokyo, Japan. She began pursuit of a musical career at the age of 18, when she began to write songs. She debuted with an indies release, a single called “Power of Ring”, on March 3rd, 2004, with the record label Village-A. All songs on the single were written and composed by her. She also sent in a demo tape to Sony Music Japan, and staff were stunned by her excellent vocals. She was immediately taken under Sony Music Japan and started work on her debut mini album, “AIA”. “AIA” was released on April 6th, 2005, almost a year after her indies debut. “AIA” contained 2 songs from her indies debut; “Power of Ring”, which was renamed to “Visualize” and was given a PV, and “TANPOPO no Kataomoi”, which was renamed to “Maybe”. Three new tracks appeared on the mini album as well. Two tracks, Visualize and ミルクティー (MIRUKUTII or Milk Tea), were given PVs. Although Asami was unknown, AIA managed to rank within the top 100 weekly albums. Three months later, on July 27th, 2005, her anticipated 1st single was released. Her 1st single, Fly Away, received decent promotion, as it was the 2nd ending theme for the anime series Eureka Seven. As with her mini album, all songs on the single were composed and written by her. The single featured a b-side and a remix of the main track, Fly Away.
