The Birth of " Nothing But You"  


 Nothing But You is a unique San Francisco bay area artistic endeavor blending ambient coloring with a loungy flavor. This creates the perfect setting for Nicky's sensual and soulful voice. Along with Phill the duo creates a beautiful sound collage of Rock, Soul and Jazz.


In 1964, Nicky at the age of 3 met Phill. They were in the same kindergarten and elementary school, growing up in the same neighborhood of Marumori, a small town in Japan surrounded by beautiful nature. Nicky was a very popular girl with a cute smile and lively personality. Phill was attracted to Nicky secretly.


Nicky was the student council president during her elementary school days. Also very sports minded with a bubbly personality, Nicky loved public attention. A very shy boy, Phill loves to paint and had the talent for it getting rave reviews from his teachers and classmates.


Attending also the same junior high school, Nicky (now at age 13) confessed her love to Phill, giving him chocolates for Valentine! When Phill had to transfer school because of his father’s new business place, the teacher asked the class to say their words of farewell to Phill. Nicky Promptly, Nicky raised her hands and said to Phill, “may I be your bride when we grow up?” Phill was shocked and got embarrassed. His shyness overcame him, felt dizzy, as if he was hit in the head with a hammer! Phill could not even look at Nicky in her eyes. Thereafter, Phill avoided Nicky. The two separated ways without talking after that episode, even though they were attracted to each other.


On February 9, 2016, during Nicky’s audition with “The Voice” in Chicago to become a Diva, she received an email from her junior high school friend in Japan about their upcoming reunion. And just by chance, her friend mentioned Phill. Pill had become a genius artist with great sense of music, art, hair & make up and fashion who would be able to make Nicky world famous Diva as her producer. Soon thereafter through social media networking, Nicky and Phill got reconnected again after 40 years! After exchanging over 20,000 SNS messages with Phill, Nicky was on the Plane from her home, San Francisco to Japan to meet him. From that day of the reunion with Phill (in April 2016) the two became one as a phoenix and began to fly and soar over the music world as a messenger of the legend of eternal love … and that was how their collaboration started forming the music unit “Nothing But You” in order to convey the legend of love.
