Daichi Miura (三浦 大知, Miura Daichi, born 24 August 1987) is a Japanese singer, songwriter, dancer, and choreographer. He belongs to Rising Production and signed a record contract with Avex.

Career[edit]

Miura debuted as a singer in 1997 with the group Folder, consisting of students from Okinawa Actors School, which he attended. He left the group in 2000 due to his voice changing as a result of puberty. On 1 August 2004, he declared he would come back as a solo artist, and did so in March 2005 with the single "Keep It Goin' On".[1][2] Since his solo debut, he has released 22 singles and 7 albums.

He performed Kamen Rider Ex-Aid's opening theme song "Excite",[3] released as a single in January 2017. In April 2018, he is assigned Campaign Character, for "NHK World", the international broadcasting service.[4] In October 2018, it was announced that Miura will perform Dragon Ball Super: Broly theme song "Blizzard", which was released as a single on 19 December.[5]

Miura has a cameo as a "prepper" called The Musician in Hideo Kojima's 2019 video game Death Stranding.[6]

Image[edit]

He often writes the lyrics and music to his songs, himself. Most of his songs were choreographed by himself since "Inside Your Head" was released.

Personal life[edit]

Miura announced his marriage to a non-celebrity woman on 1 January 2015.[7] His first son was born on 9 December 2016.[8]
