Aimer (pronounced eh-meh) is a Japanese recording artist signed to Sony Music Japan. Aimer was exposed to music from an early age. She played piano in elementary school and quickly picked up the guitar in junior high. Aimer also writes music in English and has a good command of the language from her experiences living abroad.
On September 7, 2011, Aimer released a triple A-side single “Rokutosei no Yoru /Kanashimi wa Aurora ni/TWINKLE TWINKLE LITTLE STAR”. The song “Rokutosei no Yoru ” is being used as the ending theme for the Fuji TV anime series “NO.6”.
Aimer’s second single, “Re:pray/Sabishikute Nemurenai Yoru wa”, was released on December 14, 2011. The song “Re:pray” was chosen as the ending theme for the anime “BLEACH“. The single includes a cover of Lady Gaga’s “Poker Face“. The song was previously featured in Aimer’s “Your favorite things“, a cover album that was released during her indie era. She received rave reviews from the fans after performing the song during a live broadcast on USTREAM, which led her to include it in her new single.
Her third single, “Yuki no Furumachi / Fuyu no Diamond”, was released on February 22, 2012.
