Eir Aoi has loved singing since she was a child, during her high school period, she sang in a band she had formed. After graduating from high school, she continued performing publicly.
Her impressive and beautiful voice are easily recognizable and she has been selected to sing the ending theme song for the TV-anime series Fate/Zero, which was released as her debut single called "MEMORIA" on October 19, 2011, achieving the #8 position on the Oricon single chart selling nearly 60,000 units.
In April 2012, Eir released an album "Prayer" which was a concept tribute album for the TV-anime Fate/Zero. In May this year, she had her first live event in Tokyo, where she fully unveiled her face which had been mysteriously and artfully hidden on all pictures.
In August, she performed at the up-and-coming anime song festival "ANIMELO SUMMER LIVE 2012" capturing the heart of 30,000 attendees. Following this success, she held her first solo concert in September and drew 600 audience members and released her 2nd Single "AURORA" - the opening theme song for TV-anime Gundam AGE.
Her latest single "INNOCENCE" was released in November 2012. This song was chosen as the theme song for the TV-anime series Sword Art Online (ALO arc) and became the smash hit achieving the #6 position on the Oricon single chart. Her much anticipated first album, of course including these hit singles, will be released in January 2013.
Currently, Eir's Facebook page gathers more than 85,000 "likes" from all over the world, and this shows how much attention she is drawing internationally. Eir is certainly the anime song diva of the next generation. Soon overseas J-pop/Anime fans can witness her performance with their own eyes.
