The Seatbelts (シートベルツ, Seatbelts, Seat Belts) is a Japanese blues/jazz band led by composer and instrumentalist Yoko Kanno. Their style is very diverse and ranges from a straightforward big band jazz to more refined rock ‘n roll ballads.
Since the band is focused mostly on instrumental work, The Seatbelts have no lead singer. But Steve Conte (from The Contes and Crown Jewels) and Mai Yamane participate and sing in many of their songs.The lyrics of these songs are written mainly by Tim Jensen and Yoko Kanno herself. Singers Soichiro Otsuka and Gabriela Robin are responsible for the back vocals on songs such as “Blue”.
