Bonnie Pink was born Kaori Asada in April of 1973 in Kyoto, Japan. In 1995 she released her first album, entitled Blue Jam, under her birth name. It was described as a mixture of jazz, blues, rock and pop and was well received. A year later she met a Swedish producer named Tore Johansson. Johansson had a good reputation as a producer for being the producer for the Cardigans. Tore became her producer as well as her friend. In 1997 she moved to Sweden in order to produce her third album. Due to the feelings of despair and sadness she found there, her album had a very sad feeling to it.
In 1998 she moved to New York City to work with Mitchell Froom, a producer for famous names such as Cibo Matto and Elvis Costello. He was very impressed with her singing and producing knowledge and gave her co-production credit on the album. It became a hit, and soon she was collaborating with other artists to create a remix album. Soon Pink’s songs were being used on television shows and in movies. Cotton Candy, one of her more popular songs, was used as the ending for Guyver: Bioboosted Armor 2005, an anime movie. Love is Bubble became the theme song for Memories of Matsuko, a Japanese movie. It’s Gonna Rain, another of her songs, was used as the ending of Rurouni Kenshin, and Last Kiss, another song, became the ending theme to Gantz.
