Thank you so much for visiting my website. I really appreciate your interests and supports.
I held my first show at Bashamichi, Yokohama, my hometown after I came back from New York.
It was full and many people watched it with online, too.
I was pleased to play with wonderful musicians, made exciting and supportive sound.
Those beautiful sweet phrases and cool rhythms and harmonies could be heard.
My passion for the music is full to play and compose new works again,
while I wish a peaceful world... Yes, we need more music for peaceful mind.

" A nice slice of club flavored jazz/funk, Ota knows how to make you feel her original lyrics and delivers them in fine form. " -- by Chris Spector, Midwest Record -- 3/29/2016 --

Finally, my first album, Walk My Way, was released in January, 2016!
Trio: Masami Ishikawa (G), Seth Lewis (Bass), Paul Francis (D)
I am so lucky to play with such a great trio. In fact, their sound is truly amazing. Masami arranged a couple of my songs. Paul is usually playing with Lady Gaga. His drum and percussion brought such liveliness. Seth's deep and grounded bass sound tied it all together.
Most of them, nine songs are my originals, including two Japanese songs.
I will sing and share these music in many venues and hope to have wonderful moments with many people.
