'I love these traditions and I call them the real American classics. Whether it is Robert Johnson or Mississippi John Hurt, or Hank Williams or Woody Guthrie or Elvis or Ray Charles you listen to, all of these people were originals drawing on past traditional music and creating new embodiments of it. These were the real greats of America. There are so many talented artists on the singer-songwriter circuit today. I hope people just enjoy my own small contribution. It sure gives me a great deal of pleasure to be back writing and making music after all of these years.'
Born and raised in Yokohama, Japan, Junko Ogawa began classical piano training at the early age of four. She recalls by age fifteen, she was enamored by an eclectic mix of musical styles–folk, pop, rock, fusions of Japanese, British, and American music–while maintaining her original love of classical music.
At the age of nineteen, Junko arrived in the United States to attend college. Her musical endeavors soon followed. Over the years, she has performed in rock and pop bands as a piano/keyboard player. Her exposure to an ever-increasing body of music expanded her interest to include blues, jazz, and R & B.
