Biography

Adachi, Tokyo, Japan (2004 – present)

Kaela Kimura (木村カエラ, born Kaera Rie Kimura [木村カエラりえ] on October 24, 1984 in Adachi, Tokyo, Japan), is a Japanese singer, model and former TV presenter. Born to a British father and Japanese mother, Kaela started work as a model in 2002 for the Japanese idol magazine Seventeen. Her fresh look and personality took her on to present the popular morning television show Saku Saku.

From there she gained more public exposure; she released her debut single Level 42 in June 2004, which was featured on Saku Saku as its ending theme. Her debut album KAELA followed in December of the same year. Her fanbase grew considerably after her third single リルラ リルハ, which was used in a series of Vodafone commercials in Japan and made Kaela a household name.

Kaela’s third studio album Scratch, released in February 2007, is her most successful so far, spending two consecutive weeks at number 1 on the Oricon charts and selling over 360,000 copies.

In 2009, Kaela released her fifth studio album, HOCUS POCUS. Butterfly, a promotional song off the album, became Kaela’s biggest hit. It was certified Million by the RIAJ in both ringtones and cellphone downloads, and Double Platinum in PC downloads.

In 2011, Kaela released her sixth studio album and first since her marriage to actor 瑛太 (Eita) and the birth of her first child, 8EIGHT8, which peaked atop the charts, making it her second album to do so, since Scratch.

    Digging the profile picture. The samples of the new tracks on her new 10years compilation don't sound very impressive, which is disappointing given how "You Bet!" from 5years is one of the best tracks in her discography.

    I hope she won't go on hiatus now that she's a mother of two.

    i listened to sync now at the very first time and i really enjoyed! :)

    I was late getting sync. I was disheartened after her shotgun wedding to Eita so I refused to listen to her music for a year. But whatever, her voice is awesome and (her studio bassists are amazing) I'm getting married soon so it's double whatever.

    Bought her album "circle" to try since I liked her song "yellow". What a great album!

    yup. 8EIGHT8 has a ton of replay value, and I find myself playing it more than sync now even though the latter has barely been out. She needs to get back to working almost exclusively with Shinobu Watanabe.
