Even though she spent a good part of her career in the hit-making, major label band Judy and Mary, Yuki has an incredible track record attracting independent talent.

She's worked with eclectic pop singer Chara on a number of projects, including the all-girl garage band Mean Machine. She teamed up with Kate Pierson of the B-52's on NiNa. And her own solo albums include guest appearances by members of Great3, Zoobombs, Polaris and Seagull Screaming Kiss Her Kiss Her.

Like Chara, Yuki possesses a recognizable voice -- at times raspy and rough, powerful and sweet. Her own solo work tends to be diverse, rocking out on one song, tender on the next.
