First, they prepared the great musicians for Ohara Sakurako. For instance, Nishikawa Susumu who has been concerned with aiko, Arashi, Nakajima Miyuki and other amazing singers, joined as a guitarist.
Second, Ohara Sakurako got the marvelous one, Kameda Seiji, produce. He has produced Spitz, Hirai Ken, Glay, Juju and other J-pop musicians. In fact, Ohara had longed for him. Kameda Seiji has written and composed most of the songs in “Happy.”
Finally, they utilized a skillful engineer Imai Kunihiko for the “Happy.” He has engineered some songs of Mr.Children, Kuwata Keisuke, Yuzu and others.
It means Ohara Sakurako’s first album had to be created by those luxurious members. In order to return her talent, they were necessary although it is said Japanese pop music business doesn’t get out of the recession yet. Then, fine is its quality, needless to say.
She was born in 1996 and is still a teenager. I have no idea about her future. Everything is going to go well or get weaker and weaker? God knows. It is unshakably true that she took the best first step with “Happy,” however.
