Are you ready to ROCK YOUR BEATS?
May Nakabayashi or May’n (メイン Mein) is a Japanese J-Pop artist managed by the Horipro talent agency and under the Victor Entertainment label. The artist name “May’n” is derived from her real name, and it demonstrates her hope to “always sing songs that will be everyone’s main theme”.
May’n is also known as the singing voice behind “Galaxy Fairy” Sheryl Nome from Macross Frontier TV anime series and theme song performer of many popular anime like Accel World, Aria the Scarlet Ammo, Phi Brain, and this season Btooom!.
May’n was discovered in 28th Horipro’s annual Talent Scout Caravan audition at the age of 13 and became one of the four survivor of the audition. She made her single debut in 2005 with “Crazy Crazy Crazy” and also released “Sympathy” later that year.
Anime Festival Asia 2008 was May’n first stage outside of Japan. She performed with Ichirou Mizuki and had a positive responds from audiences. Ever since then, she appeared in every annual Anime Festival Asia event.
May’n performed her first solo Budokan concert “May’n BIG★WAAAAAVE!!” in January 2010 which sold out in only 1 day. Later in March, she held her first Asia tour “May’n BIG★WAAAAAVE!!” and followed by a 17-city summer tour of Japan “PHONIC◆NATION” in July.
In 2011, May’N had her second solo Budokan concert “RHYTHM TANK!!” and second Asia tour “UNITE”.
