Mao Denda emerged on the music scene over a decade ago. She released four singles and one album in 2000. Things seemed very promising when 2001 brought two more singles, a remix album, a dvd and a cover album. It seemed that Mao was making a name for herself. Despite all the releases the previous two years had brought, Mao stopped releasing music in 2002 with her only release being one song on a compilation album.

From 2002 until 2006, she only appeared as a featured artist on the work of others and a few live appearances. In late 2006, she reappeared on the music scene with a name change. MAO/d released two singles and a mini album between 2006 and 2007. The following year brought only one release with her appearing on another compilation album.

Mao's next appearance saw her changing her name back to it's original form. She's released eleven singles, one mini album and three albums since reemerging in 2009. Her latest release was the album Semi Double which I'll be reviewing soon here. Her music will appeal to fans of female vocalists like Crystal Kay, Thelma Aoyama, AI and Namie Amuro.
