Haruka (遼花) is a Japanese singer-songwriter and guitarist. Born and raised in Tokyo, she started listening to rock music in her junior high school years and decided to become a musician.[1] She released her first single "Mune ni Kibō o" ("Keep Hope In Your Heart") in 2008 under a Japanese major record company Pony Canyon. The song was used as the opening theme for the anime Blue Dragon.[2] In March 2008, she released her second single "Kimi no Mikata" ("On Your Side"). After some conflicts with her label about her songwriting and musical styles, she decided to end the contract with the company.[3] After a silence of five years, she came back to the music industry in 2013, releasing a mini-album Hymns To My Soul. On October 29, 2014, she put out her first full-length album Anthems.[4] Prior to releasing her first at the age of 19, she had worked as a lyricist. At the age of 16, she wrote lyrics for two songs on the debut single of Aina, who is also a Japanese female singer.[5]
