Always (You Are [Not] Alone) is written for people who are suffering with depression, anxiety, and rough times. The song is also inspired by Evangelion which focuses on the topic of depression. Neutral Moon and I hope that our song can soothe the soul for a bit. We know it can’t be a remedy but we hope it can be of help.

Oshogatsu: A day in the life of an Anime/Jpop Artist

Happy 2020! January 1st in Little Tokyo they have Japanese New Year called Oshogatsu. I had the honor to perform not once but twice!

A very popular Anime store in Little Tokyo called Anime Jungle invited me out to perform and I really want to say thank you to Anime Jungle staff!😌🙏❤️ It was an honor to perform and to be welcomed with open arms into the Japanese community for Oshogatsu. I am very happy to have performed many times out in Little Tokyo for many Japanese festivals and events throughout the years. I really feel Little Tokyo is my home!

I am wanting to give you all a more behind the scenes look at what it takes to put on a show. I also included an Oshogatsu Music Video in the vlog. I made the track and it’s a cover of a traditional Oshogatsu folk song.

Thank you to EVERYONE that came out to support me! I saw many of you at both of my shows. I can’t express how much it means to me.

Cali Crisis and Perfect Blue Tribute

I’m in a new duo group!

Cali Crisis is a synthpop duo made up of indie artist Plasmic and American Anime/Jpop artist Stephanie Yanez.

Once upon a cyberpunk time a nerdy girl with pink hair named Crisis had an idea. After being bullied day after day she thought it was time to make a friend. She sat down at her pink computer and started to program a friend. A friend that would be a little like Sailor Moon, Mima, Creamy Mami, Kiki, and a little like Lain. She created a magical android girl and called her Cali where everything begins and ends. Cali and Crisis now have joined forces through magic and music to take on the apocalyptic world. Nothing will get in their way.

Cali Crisis tribute to Satoshi Kon’s Perfect Blue “Angel Of Love” is now on Spotify and iTunes! Add some kawaii goodness to your playlists and follow us on Spotify to be the first to hear our new tunes coming soon!
