(Group) Sweet Vacation
« on: September 18, 2009, 09:54:30 AM »


Sweet Vacation was formed in 2007 by members May (Vocals) and Daichi Hayakawa (Sound Producer, Keyboards, Chorus, Vocoder). Daichi is a longtime Japanese music producer who travels all over the world to make completely new pop music. May is a 19-year-old singer and student who speaks English, Japanese, and Thai. Their music is primarily pop but heavily influenced by the latest club music with touches of retro new wave and rave. Sweet Vacation's trademark is their unique takes on many English-language cover songs, including works by Coldplay, Blur, and Cyndi Lauper.

By 2003 May was part of  the Talent Training Project G-Junior from Thailand. By 2006 they debuted in the entertainment industry with an all girl band called Preppy G.

So i digged in to some of their videos in YT and found that... at first sight obviously she wasn't the main singer.

can you find her??? CAN YOU baldie??

Yeah, he had the same job as for Sweet Vacation - keyboard + producer~ He's actually in that group, but as a solo artist, as his 2 female vocals left the group ><

Well, I mean he's the producer for a number of groups under BUGcorporation management. I didn't even realize it until I went to his office & he was like "Do you know these groups? I produce them" XD

Seriously? Sweeet :D
Here are a couple of vids I took at their apple store live in July ^^ I actually shot this outside/in front of the designated crowd area, so lots of fans & staff were glaring at me, but I DID get a nice close up ne?? Might've helped that I was standing by SV's manager rofl.
