Miki Furukawa (古川 美季 Furukawa Miki?, professionally written as フルカワミキ) (born February 19, 1979) is a Japanese musician. From 1995 to 2005 she was the bass player and vocalist of the indie rock band Supercar. She released her first solo record in 2006.


Originating from Aomori Prefecture, Miki Furukawa placed an advertisement in a local magazine seeking fellow musicians in 1995, leading to the formation of the rock band Supercar. After a successful, ten-year career, Supercar disbanded in 2005 in order for the members to pursue different interests.

In 2006 Furukawa released her first solo album, Mirrors, featuring a mixture of guitar-based rock songs and electronic dance-pop. Bondage Heart (2008) pointed in a new direction, with heavy influences from post-punk, psychedelic rock and noise, whereas Very (2010) was a mostly electropop-oriented record. In December 2009, Vocaloid developer AH Software used voice samples from Furukawa to create the software SF-A2, codenamed "miki". In 2011, Miki Furukawa and former Supercar bandmate Nakamura Koji formed the band called Lama. Lama jump-started their formation with a single entitled "Spell", which has been used as an opening theme for the anime No. 6. The single "Fantasy" was used as the ending theme for the anime Un-Go.
