Chie Ayado is a New York-trained international sensation, performing to dozens of packed houses a year. Her unique phrasing and soulful playing is adored by millions of fans.

Influenced by her parents' hobbies, Ayado has been surrounded by jazz and Hollywood movies from an early age. She first studied classical piano but soon began to swing, and grew up as a kid that always preferred gospel to psalms. When she was 17 years old, she scraped together all the money she had saved from part-time jobs and left for the land of dreams; the U.S. West Coast.

After marrying, giving birth then divorcing her husband, she moved back to Japan in 1991. She began to sing in a jazz club in Osaka. Thanks to rumors of her vocal performance she soon made a name for herself in the local jazz scene.

The June 1998 release For All We Know marked Ayado's debut as a professional jazz musician at the age of 40. Since then Ayado has been touring regularly across Japan. With the help of fans spreading the word via the internet she managed to establish a reputation as an outstanding female singer. Soon her concerts were sold out as soon as they were announced.

In March 2001, Ayado received the 51st Ministry of Education and Science Cultural Promotional Award. Harboring an aversion against settling for one thing, Ayado has been exploring territories outside the realm of jazz. Her repertory extends from 20's swing jazz to the rock pop standards.
