23 year-old singer-songwriter. Born and raised in Okinawa (Japan), the US, and Switzerland, YU-KA had built a global sensibility in musical creation as a child. She made her major label debut with the song “lullaby” in June 2022. In February 2023, YU-KA released her 4th major single “Hoshizukiyo”. The song was the main theme for the hit TV drama series “Hoshi Furu Yoru Ni”, and ranked No.1 on various charts. “Hoshizukiyo” has surpassed 92 million streams worldwide (as of December 2023), and has become a new standard number in the current music scene.

In 2023, YU-KA performed at one of the world's largest music festivals, SXSW (Austin, Texas), which led to the acquisition of new listeners and fans from abroad.

YU-KA continues to change, but yet address listeners with her ingenious and genre-crossing sense, and hopes to create music that emphasize with each one of them.
