Saeko

Saeko was born in 1974 in Osaka, Japan. At age 14, at a time when she was suffering a lot of emotional turmoil in her life, she happened to hear "heavy metal/hard rock" for the first time, such as Helloween, Europe, Pretty Maids, Queensryche etc. She felt messages through this powerful music which was an amazing, pivotal experience for her. She felt something in her heart told her that she was born to do this music, and she vowed to herself 'I'll go on tour overseas with my own heavy metal band someday'. This determination stayed with her. She formed several bands at schools, but couldn't be satisfied with any of them. Playing overseas was a too big dream for a small Japanese girl, and she gave up her dream in 1992.
