西野カナ (Kana Nishino,Nishino Kana), born March 18, 1989, is a Japanese pop singer from Mie Prefecture, Japan. She was chosen the top entrant out of approximately 40,000 applicants in the Miss Phoenix audition in 2005, and a year later was signed to SME Records. A growing popular singer among Japan’s youth, Kana debuted in 2007 with the single, “I Don’t Wanna Know”. 

From when she was little, Nishino learnt English from eikaiwa schools, and went to America twice. She then was interested in various genres of music, including hip-hop, R&B and reggae. On the other hand, she also enjoyed traditional Japanese literature, and started singing Japanese folk songs. Her dream of becoming a singer started from junior high school. When she was 16 her mother secretly sent a demo tape of hers to the Miss Phoenix Audition (ミス・フェニックスオーディション).

In 2007, while preparing to be a singer, she was also studying English literature at university. At the time she met Australian duo NERVO, who offered Nishino a song called “I Don’t Wanna Know” for use in her music project. Nishino rewrote the song’s lyrics into Japanese herself, and re-titled it I.

In December 2007 her official site opened, and from that time onwards *I* ~Merry Christmas ver.~ was available as a digital download from several Japanese sites, including mora.jp. Interestingly, the original version of the song “I Don’t Wanna Know” was available as a digital download on the American iTunes from New Years’ Day onwards.

Namie did one, SCANDAL did one, and I think several male rock bands were going on an Asia tour as well.

There's about a month left until release. I hope they don't postpone the single .___.

Kana's releasing another single this summer! It's listed for a 2013.08.07 release and will come in two editions.

I hate that Jpopsuki is down constantly because it makes it hard to recommend stuff ;A;

 

Try her albums Thank You, Love and Love Place. Those are my favorites from her. :3

Thank You Love: Every song on here is good, so listen to all of them! Distance is the best, though.

 

Love Place: Sakura, I Love You?, Fantasy, Day 7, Is This Love?, Honey, Tatoe Donna ni, Happy Half Year

I really like her songs and her live, especially at the MTV unplugged. A pity her physical sales is dropping, hopefully her physical sales will start increasing
