Do As Infinity
Do As Infinity is a Japanese pop and rock band formed in 1999 with three members: vocalist Tomiko Van, guitarist Ryo Owatari, and guitarist and composer Dai Nagao. Their debut single “Tangerine Dream” was released under Avex Trax. On 25 November 2005, the group had disbanded.
After a three-year hiatus, on 29 September 2008, Do As Infinity reformed without Nagao. In 2017, they released their 29th single “Alive/Iron Hornet”. In September 2017, Do As Infinity performed their first concert in Singapore to the delight of their local and regional fans!
BAND-MAID is a Japanese all-girls rock band with five members who dress as maids. BAND-MAID started out July in the year of 2013 and was officially formed with current five girls in August. Unlike their cute and gothic concept of maids’ uniform, their play is very authentic and classic. As they stick to their concept of Maids, they call their LIVE a “Serving”, and their fans are called “Master and Princess”. With two main vocal, guitar, bass, and the drums, their live play is sure to rock their “Masters and Princesses”.
They attract you not only by their appealing visuals but also their promising sound. Their music video “Thrill” hit 2million views within just two weeks on Facebook and has surpassed over a million views since less than a year on YouTube. Getting a lot of attention from outside of Japan, they have made their USA debut in March 2016 at Sakura-Con, in Seattle, with over 3,000 people in the crowd. In response to their Masters and Princesses’ love from all over the world they are planning to go global to “serve” you with Japanese hard rocking sound.
Shiena fell in love with music in middle school, when she laid hands on her father’s old guitar. That interest expanded from not just guitar, but also into singing/songwriting. Before she knew it, she began dreaming of singing on a large stage. In 2014, she won the grand prize at the Flying Dog Audition (a popular singing contest). In 2015, her debut song, “Fubuki”, was the ending theme for the television anime “Fleet Girls Collection (KanColle)”, and was released as a single that same year. She was 17 at the time.
On 15th March 2017, Shiena released her first full-length album, entitled “Break Your Fate”. A class live act, Shiena has toured extensively in Japan to promote “Break Your Fate”. Shiena has recently completed an Asian circuit — performing in Jakarta, Manila, Singapore, and most recently in Hong Kong in February 2018. Her fifth single “Love Men Holic” was released on 21st February 2018, and the song is used as the ending theme of “Ms. Koizumi Loves Ramen”. Her latest song “Meteor” hes been selected as an insert song for Shouji Kawamori’s newest anime series “Juushinki Pandora”.
