SNoW (pronounced: "Snow", born June 11, 1985 in Tokyo, Japan) is a J-Pop singer also known as Yukie.[1]

She attended Santa Monica College in California.[citation needed] She grew up in a bilingual environment. Her favorite artists include Ani DiFranco, Iggy Pop, Talking Heads, and Jack Johnson.[citation needed]

Her debut single Yes was released under an indie record label in November 2004. In 2005, she switched labels to Sony Music Entertainment Japan and released Hanabi made Ato Sukoshi (花火まであとすこし - unofficial translation: "A Little Longer Until the Fireworks") in July. Her third single, Sakasama no Chō (逆さまの蝶 - unofficial translation: "Inverted Butterfly"), was released on January 25, 2006. Sakasama no Chō was the opening theme of the 2005/2006 anime Jigoku Shoujo (地獄少女), and was inserted into the 2006 movie Humoresque ~Sakasama no Chō~ and into episode 6 of the 2006/2007 anime Jigoku Shoujo Futakomori. The opening theme for Jigoku Shōjo's second season, NightmaRe, was also performed by Snow, and was released as a single on December 6, 2006. Her contract with Sony Music was ended in July 2007. According to her official blog, she stated that the strain from both her professional and personal life was taking its toll. As a result, she decided to take a break from her music in order to continue with her studies. In a blog entry dated April 10, 2008 she revealed her new stage name to be Yukie.[citation needed] In 2008 and 2009, she collaborated with SoulJa under the name Yukie for the songs "Soba ni Iru ne" (そばにいるね?)[2] and "Colorz of Love."
