Yaida Hitomi continues to be scoring on japan scene because the start of 2000s, being successful the adoration of teens and romantically minded adults with her lovely folkish electric guitar pop that she dubs “center rock and roll.” She bought an inexpensive guitar at age 19, and by 22 she was managing the instrument sufficiently to get her first EP, Howling (2000), sell a lot more than 10,000 copies, despite released on a little independent label. From then on Yaida was found by Toshiba-EMI (which got to battle various other big businesses to indication her), and, curiously, began her major-label profession by likely to England. A little club tour beneath the name Yaiko gained her a particular U.K. group of fans, but it is at Japan where in fact the genuine success waited on her behalf. After two effective singles, her initial record, Daiya-Monde (2000), compiled by Yaida herself (exactly like all her following information), shot to number 1 around the Oricon graphs. Despite becoming hospitalized for exhaustion, within the next 12 months she were able to graduate from Kansai University or college (having a level in French books, believe it or not), play U.K. and Japanese trips, and record her second LP, Candlize (2001), which joined near the top of the graphs and also went platinum. Two more lucrative albums — I/Flancy in 2002 (which proceeded to go platinum aswell) and Air flow/Make/Sky in 2003 — adopted, in addition to some weighty touring that included gigs in Yokohama and Osaka domes. In 2005 she was also among the 1st performers to try out Japanese MTV Unplugged — to such achievement an acoustic tour adopted. Through the same 12 months Yaida also performed at the country’s most important location, the Budokan in Tokyo, advertising her fifth recording, Right here Today — Eliminated Tomorrow. She continuing her hard-working streak in 2006, liberating another LP, It’s a fresh Day, before going for a break from documenting, closing it in 2008 with her seventh recording, Colorhythm. Strangely plenty of, during all that point Yaida Hitomi by no means caused the film and anime sectors like a great many other J-pop performers, although she supplied several songs for Television commercials.
