Chiyoda, Hiroshima Prefecture, Japan (2001 – present.

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

MEG’s first introduction to music was through the piano, which she has played since childhood. At the age of 20, sheauditioned for an indie record company, BURGER INN RECORDS, singing “It’s gonna rain!,” and passed. She made her indiedebut on November 28, 2001 with 傘としずく (“Kaza to Shizuku”), known as simply meg. This was also around the time MEGstarted 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 byOkamura 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 asshe released two more singles (光露 (“Kouro”) and “GROOVE TUBE”) along with her debut major album, room girl. « hide
