permalink Rurutia!!!! She's an awesome singer, I really enjoy her music and her most recent album Seirios is pretty good. I felt not many people know her, but if you have the chance, make sure to give her a try. Some of her songs I highly recommed: Tsuki'sen ichiya, Hallelujah, Ryuukou, Seirios, Scarlet and Elemments.

Also Arai Akino, she has some anime songs (like in Outlaw star or Voices from Macross) but somehow I feel not many people really know her other works. I like her voice, is really soft and nice. For songs i recommend: Moonlight anthem, Kanaete, Little wing, Hakuchuumu.

permalink Ok, I post again *__*
I just found a great band who are pretty anknown. No idea why, they're pretty good: /
Their music is a bit strange (It's J-Rock/Visual Kei, but a bit harder), but with many traditionell japanese music :RBheart:
I really like them even if I just found them a few days ago:


One man and two women in this band: )
Vocalist Aisha has a great voice and she looks pretty good: )
I absolutly love their music :RBheart:[edit]Last edit by ParasiteJely on Saturday 10 Oct, 2009 at 12:36 +3.9%[/edit][edit]Last edit by ParasiteJely on Saturday 10 Oct, 2009 at 12:36 +4.6%[/edit]

permalink BRIGHT!!!
Awesome voices. They can sing AND dance. Their harmonizing is awesome! Their talent is so underrated and unrecognized. Definitely worth listening to :RBstickout:


This band deserves some recognition. Their style is really unique!

He might not be all that good looking, but his singing and dancing really makes up for it.


His voice is like listening to an angel sing. It's truely beautiful and his songs aren't that bad either :D


If you like hardcore beats with a bit of a japanese touch, tigarah is worth checking out.

What I'm getting at here for the most part, J-RnB needs more recognition. They have some truely talented singers in their category.[edit]Last edit by on Friday 21 Aug, 2009 at 15:29 +17.4%[/edit][edit]Last edit by on Thursday 20 Aug, 2009 at 16:36 +3.5%[/edit]

I 100% agree with you for these two. Daichi Miura has one of the best voice and dance talents out there, but not many people know about him. ;___;

Artists that I think should get more recognition are:

~vistlip - They're an awesome j-rock band that doesn't get any attention.
~D=Out - Like vistlip, they're great, but hardly anyone knows of them.
~Sayuri Sugawara - I believe she's a new artist, but she's a GREAT singer. Everyone should check out her "Kimi ni Okuru Uta".
~May J. - Seriously, she can play the piano and she has a great voice. Putting them together and there's no way you can go wrong.
~Stephanie - She has the most versatile voice I've ever heard. She uses a whistle register in a lot of her songs in addition to her already beautiful voice.

I know I'm missing some, but I'll add them as I remember them. Seriously, I hope people really look into these artists and stray away from the Ayu, TVXQ, BoA, and Utada Hikaru trends. A lot of lesser known artists are just as good.

permalink YUI YUI is the best. She deserves RECOGNITION as the BEST JPOP ARTIST!!!!!
I love YUI.
I know all of us have different favorites but I understand why all of us chose one, its because they give us inspiration in many things. Like me, YUI gives me inspiration for me to continue MUSIC.... as a soul of the listener....[edit]Last edit by karisuma on Monday 12 Oct, 2009 at 04:00 -95.3%[/edit]

permalink I know a lot! xD My favourite artists are always the less popular ones. I do still have a soft spot for YUI, Mika Nakashima, Yuna Ito and the amazing MiChi though. (I'm pretty good at reviewing music for my age too... I'm 13, and I can review artists like an adult. Guess it's another of my weird skills. xD)

AI TAKAOKA - She's really underestimated. YUI fans should check her out as she also has that style that YUI has. In my opinion, her best songs are "LaLaLa" and "Forever my Friend".

SNoW - She did "Nightmare" and "Sakasama no Chou" from Hell Girl. Sadly, she has only one album out but it's a really awesome album. I think you could say her vocals are similar to Utada Hikaru's but slightly deeper, and she has a varied style.

MAI KURAKI - Her style doesn't remind me of any in particular, she has an original style. In fact, I'm listening to her album "Touch Me!" as I type this. She has a varied style as well, and I recommend her songs "I Like It Like That" and "One Life" from her "One Life" album.

Stephanie - She's not very well-known among Western Jpop fans. I didn't like her 2nd album though. Her first (self-titled) album was better. She has an incredible singing range, except she mainly uses it in ballads. I don't like her ballads because they are not as powerful as Mika Nakashima's. I love her faster songs though, especially "To.Be.Me" and "Friends".

CHIEKO KAWABE - Her style isn't for everyone, I guess. It just seems a little... cutesy... to me. She hasn't released any music in a while, so I guess I'm just judging her by her songs she has out at the moment. She did do the opening to Ouran HS Host Club, but I like the songs "Brilliance" and "Shining". I don't recommend "Mermaid" though, what with the bad English. =/

permalink ARASHI! I know they are pretty darn popular in Japan, but I wish more people globally could get to know them better and not just as "preppy boys singing and dancing to poppy music" They are way more than that, and I just hope that someday lots of people around the wrold will know them as who they really are. ^_^

permalink EAT YOU ALIVE T_T
They're so talented. I'm really wondering why they're still so unknown ;_;
I'm not sure if I can still call them Visual Kei... When they still had the name Maverick they were=/ but they changed to EAT YOU ALIVE. Now they're more a Metal band with some Raps in their songs. They also covered Limp Bizkits song Eat you Alive^__^ But if you don't know that then this cover song (XII Rosery) don't sounds like that bc it's pretty different compared to the original by LB ^__^

permalink me-al art
They are a Japanese Rock / Alternative band, the lead singers vocals are very impressive I think, but I know that in Japan that are not that widely known~

Mao Abe
I first heard her song 'Free' and fell in love with her~~! She has YUI type style, but her vocals are amazing. It is hard to describe. . Her debut album 'POP' was very good! *^* even A-chan of Perfume loves this girl. haha~ XD

Sonomi Tameoka
I HIGHLY recommend this singer. She sings R&B / Pop music, and released an album titled 'Movin' On' in 2009, but ever since then I never hear about her. Her vocals are amazing, and a lot of her songs have a great beat!

permalink oh, everyone suggested jrock artist :onetooth:
but since kumasan didnt mention about the genre, i'll say:
Kelvin Chen Wei Lian.

He's born with Leber's congenital amaurosis (i assume that is almost like blind?) but he can play both piano and guitar, and sing in a variety of languages and dialects. (isnt it awesome?! *___* ) his voice is sooooo great <3 very talented :applause:

check his songs on JPA.
