This week in The Japan Times I talked to Caroline Lufkin (who records solo as Caroline and is also a member of Mice Parade) about her upcoming live show in Tokyo, amongst other topics.
In another time, Caroline Lufkin could easily have ended up as a chart-topping J-pop star. After graduating from Boston’s Berklee School Of Music, the Okinawa-born artist moved to Tokyo, where she began working on her first album. Her management at the time wanted Lufkin (who performs simply as Caroline) to go down the same road her big sister Olivia Lufkin did. Her path to the Oricon charts was being paved right in front of her.
