「音楽を追求しよう」と心に決めたときに作った楽曲「Dreaming」をはじめ、彼女の紡ぎ出す音楽はジャズやエレクトロニカ、R&Bを取り入れながら、温かくソウルフル。聴いているうちに穏やかな彼女の人柄に包まれるような感覚になりました。音楽は言葉以上に優しさを伝えられることがあるのだと思い出させてくれるかのよう。” - Miki Kobayashi

還 (Kaeru)

還 (Kaeru) means "to return home". I’ve felt restless and displaced since emigrating from London as a child.

還 (Kaeru) means "to return home". I’ve felt restless and displaced since emigrating from London as a child. Not really fitting into each community I’ve touched down in, as an immigrant I’ve increasingly wondered where home is for me. I’ve traveled to many countries, however, it is Japan that speaks most to me, validating the strong connection I felt when first visiting 20 years ago as a medical student. It is therefore not a coincidence that I had the wonderful opportunity to record 還 (Kaeru) with local musicians Uma Ebina, Tatsuya Okabayashi, and Hidenori Tsugita at Tepemok Studio, a former hospital in Ushimado.

Through the journey of composing 還 (Kaeru), the process delivered answers to the exact questions that needed to be asked. 還 (Kaeru) represents the evolution of embracing and honoring what’s known deeply within, the joy of reclaiming authenticity, and how to return home to both within the self and outer world. I have indeed returned home.
