Home ARTISTS Yoko Galvin
Born in Tochigi, Japan, Yoko Galvin traveled around the world in the 1970’s, visiting Russia, Europe, and Canada, gaining experiences that she has beautifully incorporated into her art. Her unique perspective on life, love, and relationships results in some of the most captivating and inspiring pieces of musical and visual works.
As a visual artist, each drawing of a flower arrangement, Japanese woman, scenery, or kimono is original and signed "Maeda Yoko". Each piece makes careful use of vivid colors and deliberate strokes as she strives to reduce her subject to its most elemental parts, only to build it up anew as a one-of-a-kind vision that is uniquely her own.
As a musical artist, Yoko's lyrics come from a place of determined yet suppressed womanhood. At the same time, her lyrics are framed in haunting melodies, and set within contemporary musical backdrops. Her expressive alto voice provides the range and emotion that lets her stories come alive.
Her musical efforts yielded her 1995 debut CD release “A Woman's Tale”, an 11-song collection and 2013's CD release of "Fly Away", both composed and performed by Yoko, and produced and arranged by award-winning producer Demetrio Navarro. Proceeds from the CDs were donated to help people in need. 
Yoko lives in Western Canada with her husband Philip, where she enjoys being a mother and grandmother.
