When she was very young, she loved to sing and play the piano, and her parents enrolled her in music lessons at the early age of three. Later, studying French literature at Dokkyo University, she discovered jazz and was immediately hooked by the music, so she decided to sing after school in several jazz clubs in Tokyo. After she interpreted songs of Ella Fitzgerald, she also became interested in French songs (Charles Trenet, Charles Aznavour, Dalida, etc.).

Rié found her path after meeting with Diva Gray, former vocalist of "Chic" who shared her musical experience, American music (Pop, Gospel and Funk) permeated her, which helped her to embark on an international career that enabled her to perform abroad at her early age. At 25 years old, she flew to Hawaii, where she received a warm welcome including various media which featured her. Then two years later, she toured in Singapore (2009) and then in Vietnam.

In 2010, during the festival of 48 Hour Film Project Awards in Ho Chi Minh, Rié received “The Best Music Award” for one of her songs “The One” [Rié FURUSE & Chris Mosdell] which was featured as the soundtrack for the movie “Postcards from Heaven”.

It was at this time that she decided to move to Paris to follow in the footsteps of the great jazz giants who cultivated the scene in Saint-Germain-des-Prés, without renouncing her tours abroad. As a result of such varied inspirations, she created her own style, a mix of Contemporary Jazz, Fusion, Funk and Jazz-Pop. Listening to her music, the audience recognizes the influence of Roberta Flack, Eva Cassidy, and Lalah Hathaway.

In her newly adopted country, Rié composes her songs inspired by Parisian life. She has fallen in love with France and its culture without loosing her cosmopolitan touch and universal roots. She is truly a globetrotter and continues to perform concerts and tours abroad.
