Once Upon a Daydream: MASUMI

MASUMI is a Los Angeles-born, Tokyo-raised international singer-songwriter and actress; her original song “Run Baby, Run” was picked up by multiple Spotify Official playlists when it first came out in 2017; she recently jumpstarted her acting career, and will be the star of her first movie Yakuza Princess, an action-thriller adaptation of the graphic novel Shiro by Danilo Beyruth, set to be released in late 2020 (the movie has adopted “Run Baby, Run” as its theme song); a lot of things are in motion for her, but MASUMI’s goal remains the same, and that is “to inspire ordinary people to pursue extraordinary dreams;” visit her website MasumiCherrie.com to listen to her music and for updates on her projects; follow @MASUMI.music on Instagram
