Superstar OLIVIA headlines PMX with American debut

LOS ANGELES – Singer/songwriter sensation OLIVIA Lufkin will perform at
Pacific Media Expo (PMX) one day only: Oct. 28, 2006.

"We are honored to be her American debut," said Mike Tatsugawa, PMX
Event Chair. "Her music has a long following on both sides of the
Pacific. Her goth style reaches out to our big fashion fans. Her
songs
for the NANA anime are huge hits among the anime fans in the US. OLIVIA
is one of those rare performers who resonates with everyone."

Born to a Japanese mother and an American father, OLIVIA was discovered
while attending the celebrated Okinawa Actors' School and signed to
Eurobeat girl group Dance & Dream (D&D). Their moderate success paved
the way for her critically acclaimed 1999 solo debut produced by legend
Komuro Tetsuya (TK), frequent collaborator of Amuro Namie, Globe, TRF
and hitomi. In 2004, Avex released an overseas version of sophomore
full
album The Lost Lolli as recognition for her growing popularity.

After enjoying a musical hiatus, during which OLIVIA gained respect as
a
fashion model and designer, she was chosen by popular NANA manga author
Ai Yazawa to provide the singing voice of character Reira Serizawa on
the television program. She has since performed three songs for the
opening and final credits. The first single, “A Little Pain,” ranked at
#8 on the Oricon charts and sold 20,162 copies in the first week.
Offscreen, NANA has sold an astounding 22 million copies of its first
12
volumes.

OLIVIA appears courtesy of Avex as part of the Pacific Music Live
concert series. Other performers featured are UchuSentai NOIZ,
MECHANiCAL PANDA, Dig Jelly and Random Ninjas. PMX will also welcome
Avatar: The Last Airbender creators Bryan Konietzko and Michael
DiMartino, as well as Kamikaze Girls creator and Lolita fashion icon
Novala Takemoto.

Pre-registration is available online and includes a group discount of
20
percent for at least five attendees. Concert tickets will be on sale
beginning Oct. 7, 2006. For the convenience of our attendees, we accept
all forms of payment and have extended reduced membership costs to
