      ....
      The unique Japanese female trio Rin Mana, Tomoca and Chiewas formed in 2003
      after its three members graduated from Tokyos esteemed National University of
      Fine Arts and Music. The essence of their ethereal, atmospheric sonic tapestry
      is to fluidly combine the exotic and subtle sounds of traditional Japanese instruments
      with a contrasting framework of contemporary western popular music. We are interested,
      say the lovely ladies of Rin, in making Japanese music accessible to the American
      ear. The thousand year spirit in our instruments has a soul that needs to be heard.
      ..
      ..
      With their U.S. debut album Inland Sea on Domo Records, Rin unleashes that spirit
      with beauty, drama and naturally graceful pop sensibilities. In a similar vein
      to the cinematic, ambient techno of Zero 7--whose acclaimed albums Simple Things
      (01) and When It Falls (04) also delicately layer ephemeral soundscapes with
      mesmerizing vocalsRins music evokes a dream-state that is both soothing and
      radiant. When famed music producer/artist Narada Michael Walden heard Rins distinctive
      artistry live at their first-ever U.S. show at the Knitting Factory in New York
      City in 2004, he commented that their, fusion of Japanese instruments and new
      sounds is fresh and marvelous...
      ..
      That accolade sets the stage for Inland Sea, which officially introduces Rin to
      America. The disc was produced by music veteran Jimmy Harry, whose seasoned pop
      sensibilities have driven albums by stars including Samantha Cole, Lisa Loeb,
      Lindsay Lohan, Kylie Minogue and Britney Spears. Harry also wrote or co-wrote
      all of the albums eleven tracks, with stand-outs including Anti-Hero, featuring
      Lisa Loeb crooning an infectious vocal that seamlessly blends into Rins instrumental
      magic. ..
      ..
      Other highlights include three enchantingly dreamlike tracks spotlighting vocals
      by former Sixpence None The Richer lead singer Leigh Nash--New Day Rising, Never
      Knew What Love Meant and Sea Of Tranquility. Citing other favorite cuts, Mana
      and Tomoca both single out the plaintive and elegant Solemn, with Tomoca also
      selecting AA170. Chie chimes in with a mention for the title track, a glistening
      and reflective tone poem...
      ..
      Besides the Loeb and Nash-embellished compositions, Rins own striking intermittent
      vocals offer textural, often abstract brushstrokes in the groups rich aural landscapes.
      Their musical virtuosity shines on age-old yet timeless Japanese instruments including
      the Koto, a resonant stringed board zither, and its bass cousin, the Jushichigen.
      The girls of Rin also excel on the Biwa, a form of short-necked lute; the Sangen,
      a variation on the shamisen; and the Shakuhachi, a breathy, bamboo flute often
      associated with Buddhist chants...
      ..
      Rins steady career rise first began in early 2004 with the success of their debut
      Japanese single, Sakitama. At home, theyve since released two full length studio
      albums of original material, a concert album, an album interpreting Christmas
      music and a live DVD. The trio has toured extensively in Japan and Asia, with
      highlights including a January 2004 concert in Shanghai for the Japan China Cultural
      Exchange Exhibit, a performance in October of that year at the John Lennon Music
      Festival at the famous Nihon Budokan, a featured set at the globally minded 2005
      World Exposition in Aichi, Japan and a 4-date tour in Mexico in October 05. Stateside,
      Rin was the only act from Japan to play at 2004s 92nd National Cherry Blossom
      Festival in Washington, DC, an annual celebration of Tokyos original gift of
      3,000 cherry trees to the U.S. capital in 1912. ..
      ..
      With influences ranging from the Beatles and the Carpenters to Destinys Child
      and Japanese national treasure Kunie Fujii--a legend in the traditional musical
      art of jiuta--Rin has a cross-cultural vision and dynamic creative expression
      that is like no other. So far, says Rin, weve collaborated with J-pop, trance,
      jazz and reggae. We continue to realize the many facets that our instruments reveal
      to us depending on the style of music we are exploring. Western music has always
      been a central and integral part of our lives, and we want to experience all the
      untapped potentials that our instruments may hold. ..
      ..
      Rin also plans to tour in support of Inland Sea, and eagerly await their first
      full-scale U.S. concert itinerary: We like seeing the music expand in real time,
      the sensitivity of our instruments blending with our present feelings and spreading
      to the many people in the audience. Theres nothing more supreme than living in
      the moment and taking in the smiles of the listeners. ..
      ..
      Pronounced similarly to ring in English, Rin means clear cut and cool and
      crisp in Japanese. Wa is the Japanese word for ring, and also has other associations
      related to peace and harmony. The melding of these words and meanings, along with
      Mana, Tomoca and Chies joint aspiration to create a full circlea ringthrough
      music, led to their groups very fitting name. Experience the moment with Rin,
      and discover their resonant music through the exquisite sonic depths of their
      new album, Inland Sea. ......

      The Sensational Japaneses female trio Rin' -Mana, Tomoca
      and Chie- are recent graduates of Tokyo's
      prestigious National University of Fine Arts and Music. Their ethereal blend of
      contemporary western pop and traditional Japanese music has won them major fame
      at homewith several acclaimed albums and the hit single "Sakitama". ..
      ..
      With their 2006 U.S. debut album Inland Sea, the ladies of Rin' are poised for
      international stardom. Produced and written by industry veteran Jimmy Harry (Lisa
      Loeb, Lindsay Lohan, Kylie Minogue, Britney Spears, etc.), Inland Sea spotlights
      Rin's graceful virtuosity on Koto, Jushichi-gen, Biwa, Sangen, and Shakuhachi
      and other timeless eastern instruments. ..
      ..
      The atmospheric disc also seamlessly incorporates vocals by ..Lisa
      Loeb ..on the infectious "Anti Hero" and from former Sixpence
      None The Richer singer ..Leigh Nash.. on three
      dreamy tracks, "New Day Rishing", "Never Knew What Love Meant" and "Sea Of Tranquility".
      ..
      ..
      The group's name Rin' is inspired by the English word "ring" and the Japanese
      word "wa", combined to express the threesome's aspiration to creat a "circle of
      music", a sound that famed producer/artist Narada Michael Walden has called, "...fresh
      and marvelous". We think you'll agree! ....
