London, UK, March 11, 2013 -- Revolutionary songwriter and violinist,
Diana Yukawa is set to release her EP on 18th March 2013. The British
artist will be releasing the 3 tracks, My Way Home, Juno and City of
Shadows, worldwide (excluding Japan) digitally under the title Finding
the Parallel.

In the years that followed her last album release with Sony Music, Yukawa
has been working hard to establish her signature sound. In a recent
interview, when asked about the music Yukawa described it as Electronic-
Classical-Triphop. The music and the artist can only really be described
as simply revolutionary and refreshing....

The London based songwriter and violinist feel’s that this EP has truly
captured the sound she has been striving for.

Yukawa comments “it' been a long musical journey I have been on to create
the music I've been so passionate to make. I have been combining
different sounds that I love with the violin and finding the right
balance of electronic and acoustic. It's about love - love for music!”.
The violinist continues “I suppose you could say the sound is a blend of
classical and electronic. It lends itself really well to visuals, because
I think it's very atmospheric and emotive - lots of people say it sounds
very filmy.”

For the EP, Yukawa collaborated with Producers Alexis Smith and Joe
Henson working closely to co-write the tracks. Also known as “The
Flight”, the duo’s skills are as diverse as their credits, having worked
with Empire of The Sun, St Lou Lou, Lana Del Rey and Bjork to name a few.

Yukawa was thrilled to have found these two great talents “Joe and Alexis
really understand my musical direction and it was a great pleasure to
work with the exceptionally talented duo”.

Yukawa is currently writing the material for her album which is
speculated for release towards the end of the year. In addition to her
own album Yukawa is also working with John Foxx and Benge for a
standalone album which is expected to get a release this year.

Also the violinist and songwriter collaborated with the notorious Nitin
Sawhney on a track. Nitin spoke highly of the songwriter; “Diana’s tone
is simply awe inspiring - a true virtuoso and a joy to work with.”

The London based violinist has released three albums through Sony Music,
the first when she was just 14 years old. Her last album “The Butterfly
Effect” released in 2009 features original music co-written by the
violinist. Yukawa comments “whilst the sound of the last album is rather
different to the new material, The Butterfly Effect was really a great
stride forward in establishing my future music direction”.

The violinist has led an extraordinary life. Born in Tokyo to an English
ballet dancer and a Japanese banker just 3 weeks after the 1985 Japan
Airlines disaster that took her father’s life, she has crossed cultural
boundaries in her personal life and is pushing to cross even further in
her professional life as a much celebrated violinist and songwriter.

“My goal is to create music that connects with listeners and to also
reach people who perhaps wouldn't ordinarily listen to my kind of music,
or more "classical" and instrumental music. I want my music to evoke
emotions.. it's really as simple as that.”

Finding the Parallel, the EP will be available to download from 18th
March 2013
