Biography

Asuca Hayashi, born on May 28, 1989, is a singer, and more recently songwriter. She is half-Chinese and half-Japanese, but more frequently performs songs in Japanese. Debuting at the young age of 13 with the single, “ake-kaze,” which saw a simultaneous release in Taiwan and Japan in 2003, Asuca has since released 3 albums, one mini album, and ten singles as of April 9, 2007.

Asuca landed a contract with Toshiba EMI at the age of 11 after her piano teacher sent in a demo tape. She is known for her powerful vocals, which are often considered to sound mature beyond her young age.

    凛の国 is so full of epic WIN :o. Her studies keep me hopeful that she's just pursuing other things and not that no one wants to work with her just because she doesn't bring in the $$$. It would be so disheartening if she was to join the ridiculously talented yet obscure artists for the rest of her career. And 五月の空 is so sweet! ;__;

    I'm very surprised that this little woman has such a strong voice. I'm impressed! That's all that I came here to say, but I agree with everyone here that she's definitely under rated.

    <3 Asuka's amazing... Indeed, she is underrated. She's only 2 years older than me, but she sings so maturely...

    A fantastic, yet underrated artist. I can't name one song of her I don't like. Asuca was the first J-pop artist I got to know, and she's still my favourite.
