Biography

Chihiro started improv theater when she was 15. Here she discovered making up lyrics on the spot in musical scenes was something that came quite natural. She advanced in composing and performing, but somehow singing got lost along the way.

During her study (University of Amsterdam, Media and Culture - Minor Music and cognition) she performed with the CREA jazz band and she programmed a monthly open mic. With the open mic she got to connect artist and started again performing herself.

Currently she's working on a musical environmental documentary. It is a road movie quest for learning from indigenous people in Bolivia to live in harmony with mother earth, and importing this know-how to the West (Netherlands). The story will be told with videoclips and different styles of music.

Lyrics

Mr Jar

Written By: Chihiro Geuzebroek

MR JAR

Inside his head is a jar / with secrets & lies and hidden scars
Inside he denies his own heart / But bottled up emotions won’t get him very far

How he gives and he gives & surrenders / To Love
But somehow he can never ever / Get enough
Oh he’s a slave for her devotion / She’s his fix
But the jar cannot be fooled / By carnal tricks

Inside his head is a jar / with secrets & lies and hidden scars
Inside he denies his own heart / But bottled up emotions won’t get him very far

He tries to ignore the darkness / of his indecisive heart
He dreads that horrid moment / when he affection falls apart
And it’s not that he’s needy or greedy / for help
But he aches for her love cause he cannot / Give it to himself

Inside his head is a jar / with secrets & lies and hidden scars
Inside he denies his own heart / But bottled up emotions won’t get him very far

His loneliness has no borders / But he always tries to go abroad
Refugees don’t go on vacation/ They live in exile… cause they’re scared to get caught
