kawai-naoko-1984Daydream Coast is an album by Japanese singer/actress Naoko Kawai, released in 1984

Naoko Kawai got her start in music when she took piano lessons in elementary school and joined the folk song club in middle school. She also joined a mandolin club while in high school. While in her second year of middle school, she tried out for the talent program Star Tanjou! but didn’t make the selection. But she got her chance in show business when she won the Bideki’s Young Siblings Audition, singing ANRI’s “Olivia wo Kikinagara”. She trained for a year in Tokyo with lessons in composing, singing, and writing lyrics.Themify Builder Placeholder
