Omori Seiko (大森靖子) is a Japanese singer-songwriter who began her career in 2008. She is also the former lead singer, guitarist, and keyboardist for the band Omori Seiko & THE Pink Tokarev.
Omori loved singing since she was a child and often imitated SPEED, Morning Musume, and Hamasaki Ayumi when she saw them on TV, but she did not believe she could become a singer if she was not cute. When Omori entered elementary school, her parents enrolled her in painting, calligraphy, and piano lessons. She then went to a private middle school and high school, where she was bullied and distanced by others for being strange. Omori graduated from high school in 2006 and decided to enter Musashino Art University in Tokyo.
When she was 19, Omori came across the live house Muryoku Muzenji, which showed her the way of music and allowed her to express her interests without judgement. She eventually quit university in 2007 to instead pursue a music career.
In 2014, Omori made her major debut under avex trax on March 14 and also began writing songs for other artists.
