Biography

Eiko Shimamiya (島みやえい子, formerly known as 島宮えい子; also known as EIKO and PEKO), born April 20, is a female composer and singer-songwriter performing mostly electronic music in a style close to folktronica or trip-hop, though her works also include trance, new age, electro-rock and folk music. She was born in Sapporo, Hokkaido, Japan, and now resides in Chitose. She has been a member of the production team I've Sound since their debut album in 1999, though she just released her first solo single in 2006. She is known for singing both opening themes of the anime Higurashi no Naku Koro ni and the opening and ending themes for the live-action movie of the same name. She announced on May 10, 2010 via Twitter that she has been diagnosed with thyroid cancer. Her "Perfect World Live Tour", which was scheduled to begin in June, has subsequently been canceled. She made an announcement of her full recovery from cancer on January 28, 2011.
