Contrary to the cuteness in her look, her refined look, a singer-songwriter Miwako Shimizu does it all as her solo project “Predawn” including mixing. Her charm is the refined chord structure, philosophical lyric like that of Joni Mitchel.
She learned music since she was very young, had a band through high school and college years, and now she went solo as “Predawn”.
In 2010, her first national distributed album “Teno Naka no Tori” became a long seller in so many places in Japan.
Her music is all hand-made, and self recorded.
If you are interested, check her albums released from her own label,”Pokhara Records”.
This is a DVD trailer from her performance at Shinagawa Gloria Chapel.
Her voice at a church sounds almost divine with the chapel’s acoustic.
I just can’t help thinking that a woman’s music is a mirror if her life.
What she sees and feels in her own life.
Sometime straight, sometimes, at random, sometimes troublesome.
