Born in Fukuoka, raised in Fukuoka. Began taking electronic organ lessons when she was three years old, which she had wanted to do after seeing the "big sister" character play it on the NHK children's program "Okaasan to Issho."

While in elementary school, she awakened to the joy of music composition by expressing her feelings through the piano every day after school. The first song she remembers composing was one dedicated to her idol Michael Jackson, which she sent to him along with a fan letter. Her dream at the time was to teach music to children.

While in junior high school, she watched the gospel movie "The Preacher's Wife" and, moved by the power of music, took a new interest in singing in addition to composing. After that, she began learning music composition theory at Music School Voice.

In 2012, she made her major debut with "Shining." The title track "Shining" was used as the image song for Shiseido's White Lucent Skin-Whitening Care Improvement Committee. At the same time, B-side "NEVER." was chosen by Yanmar for their 100th Anniversary commercials. Her third single "Shinjite," released in 2013, touched the hearts of listeners and further expanded her fan base.

Also in 2013, she began showcasing a broader range of talents by lending her voice to the anime series "Eagle Talon."

July 2014 saw the release of her first mini album, "So right." Besides being in charge of all her own songs' music and lyrics, rieco also has a hand in each song's production. This particular song falls under the new genre of "J-Country Pop," borne from rieco's own country music influences. Natural and powerful, it's a pioneering production brimming with femininity.

Through her music, rieco wants to feel - and make listeners feel - hope and miracles as living things.
