DREAMS-COME-TRUE

DREAMS COME TRUE (also referred to as DCT or Dorikamu by fans), is a pop duo from Tokyo, formed in 1988. They are renowned for their pop, soul, funk, jazz fusion music, having sold more than 50 million records. DCT was started by bassist Nakamura Masato and is fronted by Yoshida Miwa, who is the band’s main singer-songwriter. They were originally a three-piece band with Nishikawa Takahiro(keyboards), until he departed in 2002. In 1989, they released their self-titled debut LP, Dreams Come True, selling over a million copies. Their 1992 release, The Swinging Star, was the first Japanese album to exceed 3 million in sales and for several years held the title of the best-selling Japanese-language album.

In 1993, they recorded “Winter Song” for the opening theme of the TriStar Pictures film Sleepless in Seattle and the following year recorded the song “Eternity” for the animated film The Swan Princess by New Line Cinema. In Japan, they recorded theme songs for TBS television shows, and it wasn’t long before they caught the attention of the Walt Disney company, and were hired to create musical-tunes for their television shows, and attractions at the Tokyo Disney Resort. In 2001, they composed the theme song for the Japanese release on the Disney film Atlantis, and Miwa was hired to be the voice actor for the character Audrey Rocio Ramirez in the Japanese version..
