Risa Kumon is a singer-songwriter and multilingual radio personality based in Tokyo, but originally from Sasebo City, Nagasaki, Japan. Not too long ago, she released an appealing music video for her sensational new single, entitled, “Free,” a 2022 rendition of Deniece Williams’s 1976 hit song. The cover was produced and arranged by Rolandis “Roro” Ramsey in Tokyo and mixed by Irko, who recently won a Grammy award for his work on “Donda” by Kanye West.
Risa Kumon – “Free” music video
“Whispering in his ear, my magic potion for love. Telling him I’m sincere and there’s nothing too good for us.” – lyrics
‘Free’ tells a wonderful tale about a young woman who shares a blissful moment in time with her significant other. Apparently, they are happily in love and enjoying the night. Later, she tells her companion, “Feeling you close to me makes all my senses smile. Let’s not waste ecstasy ‘cause I’ll only be here for a while.”
‘Free’ contains a relatable narrative, ear-pleasing vocals, and tuneful melodies that will surely resonate well with Deniece Williams’s fans. The nostalgic tune possesses e-piano, groovy bass, thudding drums, and horn-laden instrumentation flavored with retro-soul, contemporary jazz, and funky R&B elements. Furthermore, “Free” serves as a tasty appetizer to what listeners can expect to hear on Risa Kumon’s forthcoming album.
“I just got to be me.”
Risa Kumon sings in a variety of genres but mainly specializes in R&B, jazz, soul, and Pop. She was first drawn to R&B after watching “Sister Act 2” as a child. Her early musical influences include Lauryn Hill, Mariah Carey, Whitney Houston, and the jazz music that her father would play.
Risa is a bilingual artist who has an inspirational and transparent voice with a powerful message. She lost her eyesight after getting measles when she was a child. Luckily enough, she recovered her visual acuity. However, she had an intractable disease called retinitis pigmentosa as sequelae. Many of her fans say, “I feel the power of her music without any worries or hesitation,” and “her voice is healing and positive.”
Risa performed at some of Japan’s largest music festivals and charted multiple times in her music career so far. Therefore, there’s no telling how fast she will continue to rise. Also, Risa interviews celebrities and other entertainers (on R2 RADIO & Risa’s Select) while they visit Japan.
