I was wondering if anyone else has heard of this artist. I discovered her because she did the ending song for a drama I'm watching (Umi no Ue no Shinryojo).

I think the second one shows her vocals off better.

I first discovered her when I went to Japan in December 2012 and heard Sabrina in an arcade game. It was pretty good, so I decided to listen to her first album LEO. I'm subscribed to her YouTube channel so I occasionally hear new songs. I like her music, but it hasn't captured me the same way as SCANDAL or some other artists have.

There's already a thread about her: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

I really like her voice, her second A Boy is one of my favorites of 2014.

I like her vocals, too. She reminds me of another singer, but I can't think of who it might be....

I used to post quite a bit on the older thread, but the lack of activity on that kind of made me forget about its existence. She's my favourite Japanese female solo singer, and my 3rd favourite overall (1st and 2nd being SCANDAL and Sonar Pocket). She's also one of the only 4 Japanese artists that I actively track releases for.

I see people comparing her to YUI all the time, and I don't really get why (probably because both of them came from the same vocal school). I don't really know much about YUI's songs, but I think she does a lot of ballads and soft songs (forgive me if I'm wrong), while Leo covers a pretty wide range from ballads (Kimi Dake and Silly) to pop (a boy and Hello) to straight out rock (Junjou and Bless You). Her voice (the reason I started listening to her in the first place) is also much more powerful and versatile too, I really love those songs that manage to show off both her soft and powerful sides of her vocals like Message and Shine, while YUI's always sounded pretty airy to me, which is why I never really liked her in the first place.

I don't really like her current look though, I think her hair is too short for her, kinds of make her face look a bit rounder. I thought she looked best during her debut period (Sabrina and Shine) with her shoulder length hair.

I've listened to several of her songs on Youtube and am pretty happy with her music. I'd like to buy her albums, but they're not available on Amazon for download, so don't really know where to look to make a non-pirated purchase.

if you're not looking at physical CDs, Amazon Japan do provide digital downloads. Not sure how that works though, since I've not used that before, only tried using iTunes once for downloads, but I'm still pretty sure they support international sales
