Story

AIMI, ex-STEREOPONY vocalist, started her solo project on September 2016. She announced to produce her first solo album. This is the project that AIMI will deliver her first album to everybody living outside of Japan.

ABOUT THIS PROJECT

AIMI has conducted “STEREOPONY U.S. TOUR” at 4 different venues in three U.S. cities when she was the vocalist of the group. She also performed at the stage of SXSW in Austin, Texas. Because couple songs of STEREOPONY used as the theme song of “Anime” animation TV program, there are many fans support her outside of Japan.
In September 2017, AIMI started crowdfunding campaign in Japan and the monetary goal achieved within 8 minutes. The campaign still goes on. However, that crowdfunding system is limited and only for people in Japan. This time, AIMI launched this project to reach everybody all over the world.

ABOUT NEW CD ALBUM

• There are 12~13 songs recorded since last year when AIMI started her solo project
• Including popular digital released song “Cotton” and “We-Know” and other new recorded songs
• Plan to deliver the CD to you by March 2018 (this information is subject to change)

COMMENTS from AIMI

When I was a vocalist of STEREOPONY, I’ve been abroad as concert tours. At that time I was so impressed there were many fans supported me even in foreign countries. Since then I’ve been thinking to reach everyone in any countries as I do for fans in Japan.
I can start to record my first solo album because I made my crowd funding project success in Japan. However, only people in Japan could join that crowd funding system I first used. Now I start the same project with Tokyo Mirai Mode because I really want to deliver my album to every single person who supports me, no matter where they live. The fund raised through this project is for the cost of producing/recording the album, the fee of delivery and translation, and any other operating costs. Thank you for your support and I really appreciate that.
