[Bio] Nozomi Takizawa – Singer, songwriter, Composer
Nozomi Takizawa is a song-writer and singer from Tokyo. Her unique spunky energy filled music was recognized by one of Japan’s most popular fitness clubs. She was a finalist in the Japanese Nigata Jazz competition in 2016.
Nozomi released “ Nozomi” her New York City recorded debut album, on June 27, 2018. Her album was produced by Guitarist Tsutomu Nakai and features pianist Sullivan Fortner (Grammy winner) Bassist Lonnie Plaxico ( Grammy winner), and drummer Dwayne “Cook” Broadnax, all of whom are renowned Jazz artists in New York City.
Critics say she is a “ one and only” and that this collaboration transcends cultural bounds. This past summer, she and her band played in many cities around Japan to celebrate this splendid accomplishment.
While Nozomi’s music is soft, her voice has a raw-Smokey sound, reminiscent of Jazz of the 1920’s. She is able to add a contemporary and chic spin to it-adding soul.
Nozomi enjoys writing music that reaches people’s hearts as she continues to master her sound.
