You won’t hear a lovelier song or voice, I promise…

Ohara Sakurako Hitomi LE single with DVD

Yessssss I’m officially a card carrying Ohara Sakurako♡  fan っo(*´∀`)o!!!!!Her new single “Hitomi” now being the third single I’ve purchased of hers as “Thank You” was my first taste finding me backtracking a bit to also get her single “Ganbattatte Iinjanai” ….all wonderfully catchy~* with perfectly written lyrics!!

Surely though it’s Sakurako’s voice which immediately attracts as she sings with a such a heightened pureness about her with both range and nuances perfect for her brand of lovely folk pop/rock =). Her voice as clear as that of an undisturbed lake surface on a warm summer’s day…haha well you get the picture, I so love this girl’s voice!!!~! First press orders for her new single “Hitomi” also receive a cute sticker sheet~♥ ^^. And already up for pre-order is a full length (12 tracks total) album titled “Happy” which is set to release on March 25th!! You know you so want it pre-order it soon =)!

~Ohara Sakurako “Hitomi” (mv)~

Sakurako~chan~♡ herself co-wrote the lyrics alongside producer/music composer Kameda Seiji whom was also the mastermind for her debut single and while the original version of “Hitomi” is a perfect meeting between pop/rock and folk you so have to also check out the coupling with version of this song as it’s an all acoustic piano performance!!~! When heard in this additional light you really feel the song’s lullaby aura which flows so soothingly from each lovely verse to its immaculate chorus and how the bridge section soars…with the acoustic version you can even further appreciate Sakurako~chan’s~♡ vocal control as she sings with such a textured tone, just perfect~*.

So with a perfect melody, lyrics, instrumentation and immaculate vocals, it is without question that Ohara Sakurako~chan’s~♡ “Hitomi” single receives the ‘coveted’ =P..

    Well that’s a magnificent song. I love it. Her voice is amazing, and I love the version with piano: this is the sort of ballad I would sell my soul to write! The video is simple and effective, and probably cost more to film than you might at first think, as there are those shots from high above the stadium. This is definitely her ‘time’, isn’t it. Can’t wait for the album! Do you know if she’s touring as well? I guess she will, to promote the album. All wonderful, and thank you for posting!

    • I do see clips of her performing in smaller venues for special fan events but haven’t noticed an official tour as of yet…not totally sure about that though. If not yet then I imagine for sure something is in the works of a tour and particularly with her first full length album set to release soon surely she must strike while this iron is HOT =). Un such a gorgeous~* ballad!!! And I love that Sakurako-chan herself is involved with the lyrics, always extra engaging when you know the artist themselves are producing words or music and not just performing them although there’s nothing wrong with that either =). I’m soooooooo in love with her voice and how her enthusiasm pulses throughout her songs so vividly~! And I have all of this to thank you~♥ for!!!!!!! I know you love the ep sized releases, check out her album which is being offered in this format as there are three versions to choose from all being released in just four more days!! ^^

    I think Hitomi is my favourite single from hers, but I must say the others are amazing as well (I think Thank You. is good but is the weaker from her releases; I’m talking about a-sides only). But Hitomi is a masterpiece, thank god she chose it to sing at Kouhaku Uta Gassen.

    • U~n! it was an amazing honor for Sakurako~chan to open this year’s Kouhaku!! I totally agree that “Hitomi” was the perfect~* choice as it’s an all time lovely ballad sung with so much conviction too ^^.

      Regarding your earlier e-mail to me, I should be able to be online on this coming Monday again during the late morning to early afternoon HST, please leave a comment here at that time if you’re still interested in some of her music videos. Although this site isn’t meant as a download site as I always say support your favorite artists~♥…. I do have the ability to share any of my media directly from this blog =). I normally would only do that for subscribers, but that is totally up to you =).
