"'TSUMUGI-BITO' is a song that expresses a strong determination to live, no matter how many difficulties lie ahead." - Nanao
Hello, Nanao! I'd love to know, when did you first discover your passion for music?
Nanao: In fact, there was no real reason for me to have a passion for music. My parents have been involved in music since I was young, so I grew up in an environment where I was surrounded by music from before I can remember. Therefore, music has always been a part of my life as a matter of course. In addition, when I was in my late teens, I started taking vocal training, which led me to take music more seriously.
What three words would you say best summarize you/your music?
Nanao: Powerful, passionate, multi-singer.
Tell me about your debut music release, "TSUMUGI-BITO".. what was the inspiration behind it?
Nanao: "TSUMUGI-BITO" is a song that expresses a strong determination to live, no matter how many difficulties lie ahead. I sang this song with a strong determination to live, no matter how difficult or sad it may be. I try to assume a persona from the lyrics and put my emotions into it as I sing.
Most artists say that through their art they learn more about themselves, heal injuries… in what ways has music helped you?
Nanao: I am the type of person who easily gets caught up in my feelings, but when I listen to music at such times, I am able to change my mind easily. I used to try to go to sleep right away to avoid thinking as much as possible, but music is much more effective. I wish I had realized that sooner. LOL!
What is the next "big thing" the world can expect from you?
Nanao: In addition to YouTube and live streaming, which I have been doing for a long time, I would like to do a wider range of activities. I can't tell you exactly what I want to do at the moment, but I would like to post more interesting videos, both visually and in terms of planning.
