"Garnet Crow" is a four-piece Japanese band consisting of a vocalist, two keyboardists and a guitarist. The unique composition of the band, along with Yuri Nakamura's deeper vocals than her contemporaries, makes this band stand out from other Japanese bands. What also makes this band unique, is that each member is successful in their own right. Although it is Nakamura and Azuki who are usually in the limelight, Furui is a well sought after music arranger (one of the highest paid in Japan) and Okamoto has a successful solo career.

History

The four members of Garnet Crow first met in a recording studio of Giza Studio in 1999. A mini-album was released near the end of that year on December 4th. Causing a major hit in the indies scene, GIZA studio quickly signed them up onto their label and has since been doing quite well. They have provided numerous theme songs for the two anime, Case Closed (better known as Detective Conan) and MÄR.

Their major hit came in 2002 with their 10th single, Yume mita ato de, a featured theme song for Case Closed. Thanks to live performances on television music networks, sales rocketed upwards and is currently the best selling single in Garnet Crow's history. Since then, they have done numerous other live performances on music networks and shows to help promote their releases.

They have, to date, released 27 singles, 1 mini-album, 6 albums, 1 best album, 1 remix album, and four DVDs.
