Rei, a singer-guitarist from Japan, whose impressive blues-influenced guitar/vocal skills make a charming contrast to her young age and doe-like looks, is steadily gaining prominence in and outside of Japan. She will be making her U.S. debut with a mini-tour that includes a special performance at “Japan Nite at SXSW” on March 18th, and will follow the performance with more showcase concerts listed below!

Born in 1993 in Hyogo, Japan, Rei spent her childhood years in New York, making her fully bilingual in English and Japanese, which she incorporates into her self-penned lyrics. Having started classic guitar at the age of four, she became fascinated with blues music at five, and still lists Johnny Winter, Blind Blake, JB Lenoir, Jeff Land, BECK, tUnI-yArDx, HIATUS KAIYOTE, etc, as her favorite musicians and inspirations.
