Biography

Shimamura Uta, January 2015

Early Life

Shimamura Uta was born on June 24, 2000 in Kanagawa, Japan.

2014

In mid-2014, Shimamura participated in the Morning Musume '14 <Golden> Audition! after her mother submitted the audition form for her.[1] She made it to the fourth round (training camp),[1] but was not selected to join the group.[3]

On November 5, it was announced that Shimamura was added to the new Country Musume unit, now called Country Girls, alongside Inaba Manaka, Yamaki Risa, Morito Chisaki and Ozeki Mai.[2][3]

2015

On June 12, it was announced Shimamura had withdrawn from Country Girls and Hello! Project due to disagreements about her contract between management and her family.

Message from UP-FRONT PROMOTION
We thank you for always supporting Hello!Project.

This announcement may be sudden, but we would like to announce that our contract with Country Girls member Shimamura Uta has been cancelled midway.

Shimamura Uta joined in November last year, with Country Musume being renamed to Country Girls and making a new start, and even achieved a CD debut as Country Girls in March of this year.

After that, in the process of repeatedly discussing about the future with her family, and considering it from the point of view of going through activities as the idol group Country Girls, it became clear that there was a gap that could not be filled between her family and our company. Recently, with the family discussing about "Wanting to quit" on one hand, we had no other choice but to make a decision as this had gone beyond the scope of our company’s management responsibility, and we arrived at this midway cancellation.

As a result, Country Girls, excluding supervisor Satoda Mai, have become a 5 person group, but the remaining members have accepted the reality, and they strongly feel that they have to work even harder than they have so far.

To the fans, we truly apologize for causing you worry, but we would like to ask for even greater assistance for Country Girls from you.

Message from Satoda Mai
On this occasion, the office contacted me to inform that Country Girls member Shimamura Uta-chan was withdrawing from the group, which was truly surprising.

Since Country Girls have only just started, it truly is a pity.

The loss of members is something I’ll never get used to. It’s sad to part.

However, I believe that this is a decision that came at the end of a lot of thought by herself and her family, so we could not refuse it.

And for the current 5 members, I’d like them to work even harder!

Everyone, I beg for your kind, continued support for Country Girls!

Personal Life

Shimamura's mother is 1/4 Italian and a former member of idol group Spa Girl. She is 1/8 Italian.[5] She owns a pet dog named Popo.
