What is LADY BiRD?
It is a two-man production unit that includes Shibuya CLUB ATOM's resident musicians djTEN and KAZUHISA HIROTA. Their work is a fusion of j-pop and club music, and through their unique method of combining and reconstructing songs from various genres they create brand new dance music. There is no doubt that they will be an up and coming artist in 2009.


What is Sweet Song?
Their first release, "LADY BiRD Feat. WeiSon 孫暐 - SweetSong", began as demo songs from many different artists that were put together by djTEN. Despite the fact that no CD had been released, Shibuya CLUB ATOM was flooded with the requests for the song, which was in regular circulation already whenever djTEN was spinning. For the year 2008, it even made it to number 4 on the club's top requested songs chart.
In order to finally achieve a major release of the song, djTEN and KAZUHISA HIROTA auditioned for a brand new vocalist. Among all the applicants the voice, potential and stage presence exhibited by WeiSon tipped the odds overwhelmingly in her favor, and the pair knew there could be no choice but her.
The December 2008 issue of popular magazine Popteen featured a project called "Who is this model that sings "Sweet Song"?", and mobile downloads of the song began on well-known download site Dwango. Despite the fact that no one knew who the singer was, the song reached as high as number 20 on the site's popularity chart. The responses to both online downloading and the song's regular airplay in CLUB ATOM made djTEN and KAZUHISA HIROTA realize just how powerful the song really was.

Finally, on December 25th, 2008 an event called "Pocky Hajikeru 3 Gaki Final! in SHIBUYA" was held in the Kokuritsu Yoyogi Kyougijou Dai Ni Taiikukan; it was the first time WeiSon performed as the group's vocalist. Popular fashion model and talk-show veteran WeiSon was captivating before the assembled audience of approximately 2000, and it was finally decided that the group would release "SweetSong" on CD. Both WeiSon's blog and the Popteen editorial department were flooded with inquiries regarding her performance, making it clear that releasing the CD was the only choice that could be made.

WeiSon is the featured guest for LADY BiRD's debut single release.
