They have achieved an extraordinary position in the "Anisong" genre. In 2008, they completed their first world tour called "No Border" in 8 countries and established strong international recognition. After adding a South American tour in 2012, JAM Project continues singing "Anisong" all over the world to represent Japanese culture.
Yoko Ishida's music career started after she won a contest to become an "Anisong" singer in 1990. Her debut was in 1993 with the song "Otome no Policy," which is the ending theme song for Sailor Moon R. In 2003, her 1st album "sweets" was released in the U.S. and she performed a U.S. tour called "AFT (Anime Fusion Tour)" in 13 locations in 2005-2006. She is also known as the singer of the theme songs for the Strike Witches series. She has held concerts in 8 countries and will continue performing as an international "Anisong" singer.

In 2008, ChouCho began posting videos of herself singing on Nico Nico Douga, a popular video sharing website in Japan, which led to her major debut single "Kawaru Mirai" for the 2011 anime Heaven's Memo Pad.
