Salia completes pre-album U.S. promotional tour


Japanese pop singer Salia wowed crowds at three U.S. Asian pop culture events as she showcased new music, style and an exciting music video launch for her new single, "Trust in Me."

Audiences at three U.S. Japanese pop culture events got the privilege of sampling brand new music from Japanese singer/ songwriter, Salia's upcoming debut pop album through a series of live pre-album promotional concerts that took place between June 16 – July 1.

Salia launched the pre-album promotional tour that included stops at Anime Mid-Atlantic in Virginia Beach, JAFAX in Grand Rapids Michigan, and Anime Festival Wichita, in Kansas, to give back to her original loyal fan base that welcomed her when she first started making appearances outside Japan in 2006. Thousands of fans got to witness exclusive concerts featuring a newly styled Salia accompanied by DJ Asu Rock, Hip Hop dancers, and brand new unreleased pop music from Salia's upcoming album as well as her world renowned classic theme songs.

Marking the Launch of the tour was a VIP party held by Anime Mid-Atlantic featuring the release of "Trust in Me," the first single from Salia’s forthcoming album of the same title and world premiere of the new music video http://youtu.be/3a3w6MiCP_I?hd=1

Salia’s "Trust in Me" music video is directed and edited by cinematographer Tim "Black Magic Tim" Wilson who executes a fairy tale driven storyline accompanied by amazing fantasy scenery, and enticing visual effects.

Salia will be touring the U.S. again in September with a headline appearance at the Asian American talent competition show KOLLABORATION DC to mark the release of her new album.

"Trust in Me" is released through Toramaru Entertainment and is now on sale on all major digital download outlets including itunes at http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/trust-in-me-radio/id527044155?i=527044160&ign-mpt=uo%3D4

Basically an Anime convention. But nice way to spin the words. Do they say the same thing for the conventions in japan?

Anyway, Good luck to her. The US is tough and right now she seems like she is only making waves with the JP Anime enthusiast. I've never heard her work but I guess she is doing mostly anime songs or comic/ video game themes?

Whatever it takes and by what ever means, you must promote yourself to get ahead, go girl.

I agree with Onniyama, I have no idea who she is, except for this recent news.

We are supposed to check it out and follow this new and exciting trend in music-related products. She combines all the things the marketers have analyzed as being the most attractive to the most people.

Its sad because she used to be really good when she was with Unicorn Table, which is a Jpop band. Then she went all hoodrat on her longtime fans with a bunch of american guys that no one has ever heard of, thinking they'll help her get big in america I guess. Lol. Her solo album is a hugh disapointment! Amaturish, pseudo artistic videos, horrible music track compared to the band she used to have. And just plain alienating to her long time fans. How sad...

Check out UnicornTable songs like Yawarakana Mirai, Amai Yume, Heavens Door, all well done songs and videos(some concert footage). Then compare those to Love is Magic and Trust in me, (excuse me had to throw up in my mouth). She used to just have a hipster japanese girl look goin on, now I swear she is in spandex in love is magic! Can't really tell from the camcorder it was shot on...
