畠山美由紀 (Hatakeyama Miyuki)


[畠山美由紀 (Hatakeyama Miyuki)]

Citing influences ranging from Carmen McRae, Carole King, Joni Mitchell and Ella Fitzgerald, Hatakeyama Miyuki says she's been singing since she was 4 years old.

Her voice, however, most resembles another one of her favorite artists -- Tracey Thorn of Everything But the Girl. Like Thorn, Hatakeyama's expressive voice could occupy any musical space, but it's most comfortable in front of jazz-influenced pop.
