Post your comments about our Mari Iijima Interview and let us know what you thought of her.
“This album is about unrequited love. To me it is a universal heartache when two people’s heart temperatures are not quite matching… My album is based on love stories. My love stories.” — Mari Iijima
“Echo” will be the 21st studio album from Mari Iijima, and much like her debut album, “Rose”, it has been a true labor of love, with Mari immersing herself in every aspect of its songwriting and production. The music is powerful and poignant, driven by Mari’s perfectionist desire to bring the music of her heart to the world.
Although Mari might have first achieved fame through the lucky happenstance of voicing the character Lynn Minmay in the popular “The Super Dimension Fortress Macross” anime series, her long and successful career as a world class singer/songwriter has garnered her international awards and fans eager to hear the next installment of her musical odyssey.
So come hear the story of a remarkable woman who says “Life gets tough sometimes. I think that a part of my purpose in life is to create the music and words to give people some peace and hope for tomorrow.”
On August 16, 2009 Mari Iijima was kind enough to give an interview to J-Pop World. Mari Iijima Interview.
