Biography[edit | edit source]
Oomori loved singing since she was a child and often imitated SPEED, Morning Musume, and Hamasaki Ayumi when she saw them on TV, but she did not believe she could become a singer if she was not cute. When Oomori entered elementary school, her parents enrolled her in painting, calligraphy, and piano lessons. She then went to a private middle school and high school, where she was bullied and distanced by others for being strange. Oomori graduated from high school in 2006 and decided to enter Musashino Art University in Tokyo.
When she was 19, Oomori came across the live house Muryoku Muzenji, which showed her the way of music and allowed her to express her interests without judgement. She eventually quit university in 2007 to instead pursue a music career.
In 2014, Oomori made her major debut under avex trax on March 14 and also began writing songs for other artists.
In August 2014, Oomori got married. On October 10, 2015 she gave birth to her first child, a son weighing 3082 grams.
In September 2018, she became a member and the producer of the idol group, ZOC. In October 2020, ZOC would sign with the record label avex trax, and Oomori's self-founded independent agency, TOKYO PINK.
