Miwa (stylised as miwa) is a Japanese singer-songwriter. She debuted in 2010 with the single "Don't Cry Anymore," used as the drama Nakanai to Kimeta Hi's theme song.

Miwa currently DJs a monthly radio show on All Night Nippon, Miwa no All Night Nippon R (miwaのオールナイトニッポンR), every third Monday from 3:00am to 5:00am.

Biography

Miwa was born in Hayama, Kanagawa, however moved to Tokyo at a young age. Since her father had a great love for a music, Miwa naturally began to enjoy music as she grew up.

Miwa began writing songs at 15. She started self-learning how to play the guitar after she entered high school, but gave up and paid for professional lessons after finding she could not make a lot of progress learning by herself.Her High School had a ban on students having part-time jobs. Despite this, Miwa secretly worked, and eventually used these savings by her second year of high school to buy a Gibson J-45 guitar.After this, Miwa played live concerts mostly around Shimokitazawa in Tokyo and in Okinawa in the summer (her parents had a house there). Due to her high school also having a ban on students working in the entertainment business, she had to do these lives in secret (without even telling her school friends). In this time, Miwa released two self-published independent singles, "Song for You/Today" and "Soba ni Itai Kara" in 2007 and 2008.

Miwa was signed to Sony Music Entertainment Japan during her third year of high school. She debuted as an artist in 2010, while attending Keio University. Her debut single, "Don't Cry Anymore," was chosen to be used for the drama Nakanai to Kimeta Hi's theme song.The single was a success, breaking the top 20 on Oricon's single charts. The song did much better digitally, with the RIAJ certifying the song as selling 100,000 full length cellphone downloads a month after its release.

Miwa will release her second single, "Little Girl," in late June. A song of hers called "Change" is currently being used as the opening theme song for the anime Bleach.

Miwa considers her favourite Western musicians to be Sheryl Crow, Deep Purple, Carole King, Avril Lavigne and Taylor Swift.Her favourite Japanese musicians are Aiko, Angela Aki and Yuki.

I discovered her from bleach too ^^.
I liked "Change" but when i searched for something else from her i didn't find anything D:
After many attempts, i finally found something about her history (not even the complete biography :V ) and the song "Don't cry anymore" (wich gets continuously removed from youtube like every jpop song... have to download it)

The top post says it all, she currently has 2 officially released singles.
Looking forward to her future album.
IMO, she sounds more like "Tsuji Shion" than "YUI" like most people say.
Her voice is nice. She has catchy songs as well.

"chAngE" is the third major single (fifth overall) released by miwa. The title track was used as the twelfth opening theme for the anime BLEACH. The capital "A" and "E" in the title represent the change from acoustic to electric guitar.
