Justice, reason, truth, favor, grace, kindness, and logic are all words behind the meaning of the name of 20 year old singer/songwriter Rieko, and she has managed to discover that meaning within her music as well. Lead singer/writer of the band Tsuāgaido, Rieko has a musical style that blends jazz, rnb, and neo soul together in order to write songs about life, love, getting lost and some how managing to find your way.
The Pittsburgh native currently resides in Philadelphia where she attends the University of the Arts as a vocal music performance major and music education minor. She also has a modeling career that she intends on integrating with her music in order to create a platform that promotes diversity, opportunity, and self love from the inside out.
