Don't miss the the first live of a Japanist artist born from VOCALOID technology in the UK!
IA is a Japanist artist born from VOCALOID technology. Her voice source is "Lia", a Grammy-award winning artist who has sung a number of anime theme songs. At her launch, IA won first place in the Amazon music production software rankings, and related videos now have over 100 million views online.
IA's full-scale launch as an artist was in 2013. Boasting the largest sales for a Japanese motorsports "SUPER GT" official theme song for the second year running, there was also a collaboration with the game "GROOVE COASTER", the hit anime "Mekakucity Actors", and a CD included with the last volume of the "Evangelion" Manga. In 2015, more than 47,000 people watched a live web-streaming IA anniversary event, and her debut live TV appearance on "IA-Chan" received a great response, trending on Twitter etc. IA's activities aren't limited to Japan: she's sold out live events overseas.
In July, the game "IA/ VT –COLORFUL-" was released for Playstation® Vita, awarded first place in the Japanese "Weekly Famitsu" Magazine and ranking second on the Playstation® store.
