Biography

Chiemi Eri (江利 チエミ, Eri Chiemi, January 11, 1937 – February 13, 1982), was a Japanese popular singer and actress.Eri was born as Chiemi Kubo (久保 智恵美, Kubo Chiemi) on January 11, 1937 in Tokyo, Japan. She started her singing career at the age of 14 with her version of "Tennessee Waltz." Her repertoire consisted largely of traditional Japanese songs as well as a few American songs such as "Jambalaya" and "Come on-a My House". Eri started her career as an actress similar to Hibari Misora. Eri, Misora and Izumi Yukimura formed a trio. In her concerts, she was supported by Nobuo Hara's jazz band. The actress was one of Japan's best-known singers in the mid-20th century and also appeared in numerous television shows from the early 1950s until just before her death. However, she is fairly unknown in many other parts of the world since her albums were rarely distributed in other markets, in which her music can almost only be accessed via the internet.Eri married Ken Takakura in 1959 but divorced in 1971. She released the single "Sakaba Nite" (酒場にて, lit. "At The Bar") in 1974. The song was later included in the omnibus album "Enka no Kokoro".
