A recent picture of Ami Suzuki from her "Negaigoto" photo shoot

Ami Suzuki (born February 9, 1983 in Zama, Kanagawa, Japan) broke into the Japanese pop market with her debut single under the Sony record label, "Love the Island" in 1998. Most (if not all) her songs under Sony were produced by hit producer, Tetsuya Komuro, who also produced hits for tops acts such as Namie Amuro and hitomi.

Ami Suzuki was released from her record label, Sony, after many legal problems regarding her contract and her managament company. During her time at Sony, Ami was one of the most successful recording artists there. Since her dismissal, Mika Nakashima and Sowelu have filled the void that was left by Ami. Now, Ami is signed to record label Avex Trax, along with many other popular artists, including rival Ayumi Hamasaki. She released her major comeback single, also her first Avex single, "Delightful" in early 2005 which reached #2 on the Oricon. Since then, shes released two other singles with a fourth and fifth on the way, as well as an album out on October 12, 2005.
