YOSHIMIO is an original member of the world's most radical experimental music group BOREDOMS from Japan.

She is most well known as a drummer, but is a multi-instrumentalist who also plays guitar, keyboard, trumpet, and uses her own voice. She is also the leader of the experimental band OOIOO, a co-founder of Free Kitten with Kim Gordon (ex.Sonic Youth), and Saicobaba – an improvisational band that combines electronics with traditional Indian instruments.

YOSHIMI has contributed to numerous recording sessions and participated in many musical adventures outside of her usual projects. She created an original score for the abstract documentary film "YUNNAN COLORFREE" and has composed music for TV commercials under the name YOSHIMIO.

YOSHIMI is truly a multi-disciplinary artist. Outside of music, YOSHIMI is the head designer/creative director for the fashion line Emeraldthirteen. Her approach to music production, playing instruments, and using her voice are completely original, and she relies on her instinctive reactions to the vibration of instruments and sounds to create primordial art. Her art is always relevant, infused with vivid color, and brimming with her unique aesthetics.

One of the more involved collaborations Sawyer has been working on is Lone Wolf & Cub; a project with his partner Suzanne Rogaleski.
