CD Baby


Award-winning guitarist/singer/songwriter who has worked with John Zorn, Bill Frisell, and other names that tell you something interesting is inside. She has a love for darker colors and more complex musical influences, incorporating jazz and other ethnic sounds into a style that is deeply melodic. Songs in both Japanese (her native language) and English. She's opened for Jane Siberry, and her style reminds me of that same sparse delicate beauty in this genre.

Richard Stringfellow

Haunting, beautiful, subtle, near perfect
This album crosses the lines between folk and jazz. It evokes those grey days from the Pacific Northwest. The playing is top notch. The artist writes beautiful, almost lilting songs. Her lyrics are lovely pieces of poetry. Simply, this is an amazing record that everyone should own.

Tamara D. Turner

A wonderfully unsettling folk jazz album with an eerie and brooding beauty
This strangely ominous and beautiful folk jazz album is like a distant lighting storm you can't hear- one that pierces through a pink and orange twilight sky burdened with foreboding clouds. Tokyo born singer/songwriter, Aiko, leads the listener through this shadowy, overcast landscape where dark black pools of good intent stagnate, dissonant echoes of bitter laughter and nostalgic smells tug at your memory. All the while, her world maintains a naked accessibility for discerning audiences as she paints poetry with her music, not just her lyrics. Adrift on an ambivalent breeze of reflection, like the last leaf of autumn before the quiet death of winter sets in, this poignant album is one that will seize and abandon you like a half-forgotten dream.

what im looking for when i search for new artists...
...this cd is thrilling in that it pushes the boundaries of what is available "out there" in music, defies conventionality, but completley takes you along for the ride. it is warm, lyrical, haunting, sensual and technically brilliant. who could ask for more?!
