Singing has been Eir Aois passion all her life; she fronted a band she formed in high school.  Although she once gave up pursuing music as a career after high school, she resumed singing as a hobby and drew attention with her singing skills, as well as the beauty, the forcefulness and the stretch of her voice which all led to her print debut on Lis Ani! Vol. 5 (Sony Magazines) in April 2011.  Later that year, she made her real debut on October 19 with Memoria, the ending theme of TV anime Fate/Zero, which debuted at #8 on the Oricon single chart and sold close to 60,000 copies.
