Biography

There are at least three artists with this name: 1) MEG, a Japanese singer. 2) Meg, an Italian singer. 3) Meg, an American freestyle/dance singer.

1) Keiko Yorichika (頼近恵子), better known by her stage name MEG (メグ), born October 3, 1980 in Chiyoda, Hiroshima Prefecture, Japan, is a Japanese singer-songwriter, composer, fashion designer, and model. Initially an indies musician when she debuted in 2001, MEG became a prominent artist with her fashion label CAROLINA GLASER and her musical collaborations with Japanese electronic producer Yasutaka Nakata (中田ヤスタカ) of Capsule, with whom she first collaborated with in 2006.

MEG’s first introduction to music was through the piano, which she has played since childhood. At the age of 20, she auditioned for an indie record company, BURGER INN RECORDS, singing “It’s gonna rain!,” and passed. She made her indie debut on November 28, 2001 with 傘としずく (“Kaza to Shizuku”), known as simply meg. This was also around the time MEG started modeling for magazines like CUTIE and Non-no.

On July 10, 2002 MEG made her major label debut with the single スキャンティ ブルース (“scanty blues”), produced by Okamura Yasuyuki, on the label DREAMMACHINE (a label on Warner Music Japan). Her second single was a double a-side; one track was the cover song イケナイコトカイ (“Ikenai Koto Kai”), and it was coupled with her indie song “Kasa to Shizuku.” However, it is rumored that Okamura quit producing MEG after this single due to her attitude. But this didn’t hinder MEG as she released two more singles (光露 (“Kouro”) and “GROOVE TUBE”) along with her debut major album, room girl.
