1979 -

Origin: Japan

Main instrument: Piano

Genre: Jazz

In her native Japan, Hiromi has released several gold records and captured numerous distinctions. She studied piano from an early age, and gave her first public performances at age 12. By chance, Hiromi met Chick Corea at 17, and the two soon took the stage to perform two-piano improvisations. In 1999 the artist enrolled in the celebrated Berklee College of Music in Boston, where she met jazz bassist Richard Evans, who coproduced her first CD, Another Mind (2003). Hiromi's varied influences-from metal to classical-helped her develop a distinct, elusive style full of energy and heart. In 2010, she released solo effort Place to Be, while 2011's Voice and 2016's Spark were recorded as a trio.
