(Artist) Leo Ieiri 家入 レオ

Leo Ieiri 家入 レオ

New, very talented singer/ songwriter. Name is going to be a bit confusing.....Family name Ieiri is not common, but pronunciation makes sense. First name is actually Reo by the Katakana, but since you always have the 'L' or 'R' choice in Katakana, It is spelled Leo in English letters. And just to further confuse.....The capital letter I looks a lot like lower case version of 'L' in many type faces......

She is from Fukuoka, and her label (signed in 2012) is Victor Entertainment.
Website: http://www.jvcmusic.co.jp/leo-ieiri/
Birthday: 13 December, 1994.

Trained at same music school as YUI, Ayaka, and Maria.



Her first single is 'Sabrina'

Nice thread.  :thumbsup
I've noticed this singer a few weeks ago when the buzz around her started rising. Let's see how she does.

She sings and writes, also belongs to Victor Entertainment (one of my favorite labels) and that has a good rock sound (yes, to what Yui) is sufficient to give it a chance.

The'll be following from now until who knows, it may encourage me to buy his singles.
