Maki has been a popular Japanese mainstay since her career as a singer and model began in 1981. Her worldwide introduction came as the lead vocalist for the group Pizzicato Five. When the group disbanded in 2001, she picked up where she left off and continues to release music today.
My first exposure to Maki came from Pizzicato Five. Her playful lyrics and retro-sensibilities made me fall in immediate love; I still listen to her for inspiration and midnight dance parties.
