Its name was FiRESiGN TiMES; its purpose... to introduce and inform any and all interested parties about FiRESiGN and their music. Today, with help from a dedicated staff of digital volunteers, another promotional publication has materialized; Derukui: FiRESiGN's new offical online newsletter.

TiMELiNE A Brief History

1997

Aya launches FiRESiGN MUSiC as a personal web-page project to promote her music and poetry.

2001

Aya meets Masaki at The Red Zone, a rock-n-roll venue in the Middle Village area of Queens.

2002

On the one year anniversary of the World Trade Center attacks, Aya and Masaki, performing under the name FiRESiGN, release their first single; RiSE FROM THE ASHES: An Anthem Against Adversity and its B-Side prelude, EXPLODE.

The relative success of this self-produced CD prompts the formation of their own independent label, FiRESiGN RECORDS, a new website layout for FiRESiGN MUSiC and a limited print edition newsletter; FiRESiGN TiMES.

The added exposure from these promotional effort results in attracting an assortment of musicians interested in joining FiRESiGN for a number of performances.

FiRESiGN ranks among the top 18 competitors at local Japanese newspaper, American Dream's contest to discover the year's best new music groups in New York.

2003-2006

With the positions of guitarist and drummer being filled, out of necessity, by a steady stream of talented transients, FiRESiGN proceeds to play a schedule of classic indie venues; including Acme Underground, Continental, Trash Bar and Mean Fiddler.

2007

FiRESiGN reprises the singles RiSE FROM THE ASHES and EXPLODE; releasing them together with 9 additional songs on their first ever LP album, ANGER MANAGEMENT.

2009

Aya and Masaki are invited to Club Europa in Brooklyn to appear as special guests of Genki Shock at the Clockwork Orange Music Festival, and performed an impromptu performance before 400 enthusiastic revelers.

The FiRESiGN TiMES newsletter is resurrected under the name DERUKUi. In it's premier issue, Aya and Masaki answer questions about the evolution of FiRESiGN and the challenges that they've faced along the way.

FiRESiGN performs Downstairs at The Delancey in the first of many recurring performances hosted by Lower Eastside promoter, Frank Wood.

FiRESiGN is invited by J-Summit to play a fund-raising event to aid victims of the earthquake/tsunami that devastated Japan March 11th.

FiRESiGN appears on a webisode of Rew and Who?, an online local interest talk show, hosted by Rew Starr and streamed live from the East Village's very own Tiki bar, Otto's Shrunken Head.

FiRESiGN performs at the 9th annual Japanese festival, Japan Arts Matsuri as part of the evening's Talent Night competition.

On the one-year anniversary of the earthquake/tsunami that devastated Japan, FiRESiGN participates at Sunrise Fest, a fund-raising event hosted by Stairway to the Dream at The Public Assembly in Brooklyn.

MEMBERSCurrent Line-up

Aya - Vocals

FiRESiGN's front-woman and founder hails from Hiroshima Japan; where she established herself in earlier years as a writer of traditional poetry. In the early 90's, she began merging metrical composition with a budding musical ability and supplementing it with song. Eventually this equation led to her enrollment at Berklee College of Music, in Boston. Afterwards, Aya migrated to New York where she underwent additional training with vocal instructor Don Lawrence, who years earlier, trained her then future band-mate, Masaki.

Masaki - Bass

Influential in the 80's as the voice of Japanese metal, Masaki has returned to his once-avocationally-only interest; the bass-guitar. Originally, from Hokkaido Japan, he has resided in New York since the early 90's. It was not until a reassessment of his role in metal music in the new millennium that he met Aya and subsequently contributed to FiRESiGN's reformation. Although, the subject of much conjecture and criticism, his decision has ultimately aided his development as a musician; allowing him the freedom to experiment creatively.
