Born in Osaka but raised in Tokyo, Jazz vocalist Rico Shinkai has been touched by various types of music since she was a child. In school the strong attraction of Jazz pulled her into its world and she began performing standard songs as well as writing her own tunes. She sings those songs gracefully and with a look that hides a low yet very appealing husky voice.

Rico released her first mini album “DAYBREAK” in April 2008 and followed that up by receiving “The Most Voted For Award” for the music contest Jam Session on YouTube.

She is currently doing work as a voice trainer and performing at various live houses and events around the Tokyo area. Check her out soon!
