Hello. I am Yuki Ishiwata from Yuki and Cuties.

I have been a big-time bookworm since I was a kid, but I came to find my love for singing when I was a teenager.
Still, none of my high school teachers believed me that I wasn’t gonna major in Japanese-literature at college, but instead go to NY to study music.

I ended up spending 9 years of my 20s in NY to pursue my music career in the city.
After 3/11/2011, I decided to relocate to Japan and I have been based in Tokyo since 2012.

Being a bookworm entire my life, my motto is “play with words with love.”
As a person with two different careers as a singer and a translator, I always keep that motto on my mind.

And in 2016, I put all my energy and love for my words into this CD project, The book of Yuki and the Cuties.

During the journey to bring this baby to the world, what I had been thinking was this.

I want to make this CD last for a long time.
Like you would still go back and listen to the Beatles even if you were born after John had been long gone.

Yes, they were world-famous stars and had all the money they needed.
We maybe still nobody at this point.

But who the hell knows it is impossible for us to make it without even trying?
That is why I decided to have invested for a wonderful mixing engineer to record at his studio.

Another thing was the jacket design.
I still buy music but only via digital distribution and I believe many others are like that, too.
So, what would be a jacket that makes people still want to “get it”?

That question led me to created a zine-like jacket.
The good thing about this book-type jacket is that I can just give the book itself to people who purchased the music online. Yay!

Unlike regular CD packaging, I ordered the discs and the booklets separately, meaning that I will be assembling them everytime we dispatch the order to the warehouse and the customers.

Maybe I am not thinking straight, but for some reason I really think I should try whatever that may work to reach out to people out there who might be unknowingly waiting to hear and love our music.

I hope this piece of music would reach you
when you are feeling all alone late at night,
or maybe in a lazy and cozy afternoon on your dayoff,
and keep your comapny while you drive to your favorite place,
or spend time with your kids.

I want this CD to be a part of your life.

So, all I gotta do now is to deliver this wonderful work of ours as much as possible.

Thanks so much for reading this far,
and thanks so much for supporting our music by purchasing.

Much much love to you,

Yuki Ishiwata
