nihongo|Yuki Isoya|磯谷 有希|Isoya Yuki (better known as Yuki) (born on February 17, 1972) is one of Japan's most notable female vocalists. Best known as the front-woman and lead vocals of the former rock band Judy and Mary, she has also been part of the largely unknown NiNa (with Kate Pierson of The B-52's) and the all girl rock band Mean Machine (alongside Chara).

As well as being a strong vocalist with prominent and varied longevity in Japan's music business (including hosting her own radio program), and appearing regularly in various commercials and ads (for cosmetic products as well as a recent campaign for Sony Ericsson cellphones) Yuki is also a very avid fan of fashion. She often models her unique and popularly mimicked wardrobe for magazines such as Cutie, Non-no, and Zipper. She is also the primary model for the Japanese photography group known as Sleep, whom she has collaborated with to create merchandise, including the limited edition White Line Backpack.

Biography

Yuki was born in Hakodate, Hokkaido to her parents Mo and Ryouko. Her father was an elementary school principal. She has two siblings: an older sister, Yukari, and a younger brother, Taminori. After graduating from Hakodate Iai Women's High School, she worked as a tour guide. After graduating from Hakodate Otani College, she worked as a beautician. She is married to Magokoro Brothers front man Yochi Kuramochi, and gave birth to her first child, a boy, on April 18, 2003. However, the child died from unknown causes (SIDS) on March 17, 2005. She gave birth to a second child on August 29, 2006.
