Yuki Ikawa is a Japanese singer/songwriter.
Yuki was born in Japan in 1987 and began to take piano lessons when he was 6 years old. He has composed music since about 7 years old, although he didn't have clear knowledge of it at that time. In childhood, because of his interest in the classical music, he had dreamed of studying in Germany or Austria with his original composition note
After that Yuki got interested in singing and has written many lyrics. When he was a second-year junior high school student, he sent his original song to the audition held by Japanese famous TV program and was selected as the youngest finalist
Thereafter, the fact that many famous international singers are singing in English led him to wonder whether he should also sing in English to become recognized in the world. But there are a lot of languages other than English. Gradually he got interested in them and since then he has learned many kinds of languages(English, German, French, Russian, Korean, Chinese, Arabic, Thai and so on). He wants to embody the spirit that he values diversity and we should have the freedom.
In 2008 Yuki registered as an ourstager at Ourstage.com.
