Since she was a child, Nobuchika Eri had dreamed of becoming a great singer. When she was 17, she sent her tape to the Sony Music SD's "Gonna be a Star" Audition, but she forgot to write her address on her application. When the president of the audition wanted to contact her, he called Fukuoka's post office and asked the postman about the address of a girl called "Nobuchika Eri". He eventually found her, and producer Osawa Shinichi immediately fell in love with Nobuchika's voice. Even though seven labels were offering her deals, Nobuchika signed with the major label Sony Music Associated Records.
In spring 2004 when Nobuchika finished high school, she and Osawa started with the recording of her debut single, "Lights". The song had two major tie-in's: It was used as the theme song to the PSP video game, "Lumines" and was the theme song to the movie, "Shinku". Months later, she released her second single, "Voice".In June of 2005, Nobuchika released her third single, "Sketch for Summer", the single didn't do as well as the prior singles and only reached #175 on the Oricon. She then started to host her own radio program called, "the swallowtail radio", where she answers questions from her fans, and talks about her upcoming releases. Nobuchika's next single, "Kodou" was used as the Mobilecast mLink CM song, and failed to even chart on the Oricon. Two weeks later came the release of her self-titled debut album, nobuchikaeri. The album fared better than her previous releases ranking in at #61 on the Oricon. The album even had an overseas version released, which mainly only happens with top sellers.
In April 2009, Eri announced that her first mini-album, hands, would be released on June 3, 2009, under the label Hills Records. Eri also launched her mixi account and a Myspace page with song samples, along with a live concert on release day to coincide with the new album. This mini-album failed to make an appearance on the Oricon Weekly Charts. In April 2015, Eri announced yet another return to music after a six-year hiatus, signing with rhythm zone, reuniting with her debut album's producer, Osawa Shinichi, as labelmates. Currently, no releases have been announced.
