Music in the family
Monaural Voice is the married couple Jun and Yoko Kiyama living together with their two children and two cats in Kawasaki, the neighbouring city of Tokyo. But how did it come about that a married couple are playing together in a jazz- band?
As most Japanese teenagers, Jun loved music and played in a band. The band played at a couple of venues and made their first demos, but the more serious Jun outgrew the others and developed his song writing.
And so, an experienced musician and producer was born, playing over the years with many different musicians and singers.
Always seeking that special voice, until now his search for the perfect singer was fruitless.
1988, Jun asked Yoko to help him with the recording of some demo-tapes. It came to him as a great surprise that Yoko had the voice he had been searching for such a long time- and so, Monaural Voice was born and it seems like in Air that the family has grown. Just listen for yourself
