Artist History

One thing I always new, from the time as young as a three year old spinning in circles on the floor, I was going to be a singer. Already at the age of 7, I stole my big brothers cassette tapes to sit in the bathroom and record myself playing guitar and singing. The sound in there was a lot better then any other room in the house.

I knew three chords. I had found two cassette decks, one belonging to my sister the other my brother and I would play what I had just recorded on one of them and then sing harmony to myself recording a new version on deck #2. I joined a local band at the age of twelve and from there went through a few bands (Black Angels, High Gloss Connection, Queen Mable) before being signed with Polygram Records in 1984.

I released three albums under the Polygram banner the next few years.

1985:In ten pieces.

1986:Target Practice.

1988:Living In A Boys World.

After a lot of touring,TV shows and Radio interviews, I decided to leave for United States in 89 and have since resided here loving this city of Lost Angels.

I worked as a staff writer for Windswept Pacific for a few years (now EMI music)... Worked and collaborated with a  lot of amazing musicians in this town.

 I also stepped into Photography and it became a new passion in my life and I am still engulfed in this world as you can see through my Website WWW.SHINTOSTUDIOS.COM You can also find me on MYSPACE.COM/AINANORWAY
myspace.com/shintostudios

In 2005 MTM Music, decided to re-release Living In A Boys World, They had gotten hold of a few demo's I had recorded with Bob Marlette and Tom Whitlock, and asked if they could add 5 of these songs as bonus trax to the re-release. I agreed and.. Deja Vu..."Living In a Boys world" was reborn. Thank You Mario/MTM.

2005: re release of "Living In A boys World"/ 5 bonus trax added

         MTM CLASSIX

Finally this year I decided to release

"LITTLE ESCAPADES" and it is a short walk away from the pop-rock world I used to embrace. These are a collection of songs I have co-written with some very talented musicians here in Los Angeles. I have been very fortunate to be graced by the presence of some amazing players and producers. Main guys on this album is Chris Standring and Rodney Lee/ Solar System.  A few songs I recorded myself in my own little home studio... bare bones..simple as it gets.

"LITTLE ESCAPADES"
got whirlwind into the Digital Download world because of the possible release of an I-phone game that features 5 of it's songs. I had  decided not to release this collection being it has some very raw demo's being part of it.  BUT.... here we go..it's out... and I hope some of you will enjoy these songs as much as I enjoy sharing them with you.

Have a great 2009 to you all.

Aina

  "Little Escapades" by Aina (Pop Artist from Los Angeles, California(CA))
POSTED BY: momof5pacs POSTED ON: 09 May 2009 04:51 PM

RadioIndy is pleased to present Aina with a GrIndie Award for the CD "Little Escapades"

Aina’s latest release “Little Escapades” is composed of an alternative/pop/electronic, yet unique, sound. As a seasoned solo artist, Aina confidently expresses her vocal maturity with style and grace. Her vocal range is truly amazing as you can hear her silky voice gliding from the lower to upper register. On the title track “Little Escapades,” her emotional, strong, and powerful vocals intensify the mood of the lyrics. Mysterious string sound effects enhance the delicate and mystifying vocals on “Sitting Knitting Stars” as the song has an eerie overtone to it. The overall production is well orchestrated as instrumental sounds are skillfully layered over the melodic vocals. “Little Escapades” is one album well worth hearing, especially if you like alternative/pop music featuring sleek female vocals.
