A fusion of folk, alternative chamber pop, and electronica, Lisa Furukawa’s music combines soulful piano and vocal ballads that range in breadth from elegant love songs to complex Celtic jigs full of mythical and historical themes. Lisa has released four solo albums of original music on her independent label (Yume Records) and one EP with the band Cloudsang.
Since 2005 Lisa has toured Japanese animation and media conventions around the world. She began performing at events such as MTAC, Realmscon, Mechacon, Otakon, Anime Central, and SAC-Anime. In the following years, she performed at almost 50 conventions around the US, Canada, New Zealand, and Australia. In addition to creating new arrangements of anime and video game theme songs, Lisa has translated everything from state songs to children’s songs into Japanese.
Asian and Celtic folk themes blend in Lisa’s pop music to compliment her Japanese and Scottish heritage. Lisa has performed at Japan Fest, Japanese consulate functions, the Whose Who in Asian Americans Gala, Ceilidhs in the Highlands of Scotland, and the National Association of Asian American Professionals national conference.
Lisa stays busy these days as a proud mom and music teacher. She is currently working on new songs with a trio. She is honored and excited about sharing new arrangements and original music at Tsubasacon.
