A native of Tokyo, Japan, she has been performing publicly in wide range of styles: pop, rock, R&B, jazz funk, gospel, free jazz and various forms of Brazilian music since high school. Her early musical career began when she founded the girl's rock band Sissy Boy, which produced two CDs: Marcy's Factory, with Vaan Media, and Kick Off Boy's, with Crown Records Japan. Even with her early success in Japan, Yuko's musical vision was broad and she chose to move to New York in 1994. A vocal coach soon encouraged her to explore jazz and eventually this led to her receiving B.F.A degree from City College of New York in music (Jazz Vocal Performance, She studied from Sheila Jordan).
