A Thorough Introduction to VOCALOID with Crusher-P
Crusher-P is a musician and illustrator, best known for her song “ECHO” sung by Vocaloid Gumi. You can find her music anywhere from Sound Voltex, Groove Coaster and Mai Mai to even Japanese radio. Since the age of 14, Crusher-P has been writing, producing and drawing images for her own music. Her first hit song at the age of 16 was just the beginning of an adolescence-inspired existential crisis that eventually lead her to choosing music and art as a career path. Now a young adult, she mixes humor and raw emotion in her music making process. Along the way, she’s done everything from making product demos for Yamaha to singing her own music in a karaoke bar in Japan.
