★ WHO IS MIHIMARU GT?

mihimaru GT is a J-Urban and J-pop group signed to Universal Music Japan and managed by Tearbridge Productions, a subsidiary of Stardust Promotion and Avex Trax. Made up of composer, lyricist and vocalist Miyake and vocalist/lyricist Hiroko, the duo have tried their hand at fusing an urban sound with more traditional J-pop elements.

Prior to the formation of mihimaru GT, both members had relatively quiet solo careers under the same management. When neither member's career flourished, mihimaru GT was born - their name coined from the first two letters of both members' names with "maru" or "perfection" appended. The "GT" stands for "Gran Turismo", Miyake's favorite game.

★ ABOUT HIROKO

Full Name:
Akutsu Hiroko (阿久津博子)
Birthdate:
July 24th, 1984
Birthplace:
Hyogo Prefecture, Japan
Occupation:
Vocalist, Lyicist, Rapper

Before her debut, Hiroko sent a demo tape full of Ayumi Hamasaki covers to her record label. Since then she has made a name for herself with mihimaru GT's urban-pop blend. Many people seem to find her appearance to be extremely similar to the ex-Morning Musume member, Mari Yaguchi. In 2007 Hiroko collaborated with artists SEAMO on the song Takarajima (from his ROUND ABOUT album), and Kusuo on the song Letter (from his Koi mo Ore Desu Bai mini-album). In 2009 she collaborated with the band All-American Rejects on the song Another Heart Calls (from their When The World Comes Down album, Japan Edition).

★ ABOUT MIYAKE

Full Name:
Miyake Mitsuyuki (三宅光幸)
Nickname: Mikkun (ミックン)
Birthdate:
October 2nd, 1980
Birthplace:
Okayama Prefecture, Japan
Occupation:
Composer, Lyricist, Rapper, Programmer

Before his debut, Miyake aimed to be a composer. After graduating Kanto Vocational School, where he studied the law of harmony, he worked as a song composer, arranger and MC, composing songs for well-known artists such as SMAP and BoA. As well as being involved in the creative process of writing songs, Miyake also lends distinctive rap vocals to mihimaru GT's more upbeat songs. In 2009 Miyake remixed ET-KING's song Hallelujah for their 10th Anniversary album 10-ten- (labeled "blue-floor REMIX").
