Biography

Zama, Kanagawa, Japan (1998 – 2000, 2002 – present)

Ami Suzuki (currently 鈴木亜美, written 鈴木あみ pre-avex), born February 9, 1982, is a female singer and songwriter from Zama, Kanagawa, Japan. She was one of the most popular female singers between 1998 and 2000.

While she was attending high school, Ami auditioned to the Japanese talent show ASAYAN, which was looking for young girls who could sing. The grand prize winner was to receive a deal with Sony Music Entertainment Japan for a music career. The TV show became very popular and daily viewers increased; soon it was aired even in other Asian countries. From 13,500 contestants, only five girls were chosen to be in the final round, and Ami won the competition supported by 802,157 phone calls from the audience. She was only 15 years old.

Produced by Tetsuya Komuro under Sony label: 1998~2001
(Releasing works in the name of “鈴木あみ”)
Sony Music signed Ami to the label, and Tetsuya Komuro sponsored her to his own sub label on Sony, TRUE KiSS DISC, with Komuro as writer and producer on all of Ami’s songs. In April 1998 Ami recorded her first song and single, love the island.

As Ami evolved into a more mature artist, she began writing her own lyrics. The first song Ami wrote, with the help of Mitsuko and Tetsuya Komuro, was her 10th single “Don’t need to say good bye.” The lyrics were influenced by events occurring in her personal life at that time, specifically her upcoming high school graduation. In 2000 after some legal problems with her management company, she was dumped from her label and fell from popularity, becoming unnoticed in the Japanese entertainment business for years.

    She doesn't seem that interested in her music career anymore which isn't surprising because no one buys her stuff but if she's happy doing what she wants that's all that matters for her.

    I'm still keeping her stuff under this tag even though she's changed it now because this is what I've always used for her. I don't see the point in having two separate tags for her pre-Avex stuff to. She's the same artist. Snow Ring is good, nothing great but its just good to have something from her after so long.

    I'd rather have a mini album than nothing. She's been gone for such a long time so that new song better be good.

    It's not an album. It's a "mini," with only 3 songs, 2 of which are remixes, and the only new on ("Snow Ring") is a ballad theme song for an RPG video game. ( 『マキナ×ドールズ』のテーマソング「Snow Ring」も用意されており、鈴木亜美さんが歌うとのこと。このテーマソングを収録した鈴木亜美さんのNEWミニアルバムは2月6日に発売される。さらにゲームとの連動企画についても進行中とのこと。)
