Nakamura Ayumi (2009)

Nakamura Ayumi (中村あゆみ) is a Japanese rock musician, currently signed to Sony Music Entertainment. She made her debut in 1984 with the Takahashi Ken-penned single, "Midnight Kids".


  • Stage Name: Nakamura Ayumi (中村あゆみ)
  • Birth date: June 29th 1966
  • Birth place: Fukuoka Prefecture, Japan
  • Blood Type: O


Nakamura Ayumi was born on June 29th 1966 in Fukuoka, Japan. When she was four years old, her family moved from Fukuoka to Osaka.

At the age of 18, Nakamura debuted as a singer in 1984 with the Takahashi Ken produced single "Midnight Kids". Though it wasn't until the release of her third single, "Tsubasa no Oreta Angel", that she became really popular and it also began her career as a singer-songwriter as she was beginning to write her own lyrics (the song was co-written by Nakamura and Takahashi). In late 1985, she held her own concert series, AYUMIDAY, with the first one featuring the band Japanese rock band REBECCA. By 1987, she had started writing all of her songs.

In 1994, Nakamura changed labels from Hummingbird Records to Pony Canyon. Her single "Kirai ni Narenai" was used as the second opening theme song to the Magic Knight Rayearth anime. She later went on hiatus in 1998 after the release of "Live with LIZ", and stayed off the music scene until 2004, when she reopened her activities as a singer at a Kayama Yuuzou event. Four years later, she would release her first cover album under Sony Records, entitled "VOICE". Also, she would release her first single in nearly four years on April 2009, entitled "Boku ga Boku de Aru Tame ni".
