Yuka & Chronoship was formed in 2009 by Yuka Funakoshi (one of the most distinguished female prog-rock artists in the world) and three experienced session musicians (Shun Taguchi, Takashi Miyazawa, and Ikko Tanaka). Via MUSEA (France), the band have released two albums in 31 countries.
The setting of the band’s third album is the Earth or the third planet from the Sun. "The Third Planetary Chronicles” is a grandiose concept album themed with scientific/technological revolutions in the human history: stone-age, Copernican theory, industrial revolution, and theory of relativity.
"Water Reincarnation”, the band’s first album released in 2011, is centred around the theme of perpetual and cyclic transmigration of water.
Their second album in 2013, "Dino Rocket Oxygen”, is comprised of three suites, and the album cover was designed by Roger Dean.
The band has been expanding their popularity with live performances overseas: Prog’ Sud 2013 (Marseille, France) and Festival Crescendo 2014 (Saint Palais sur Mer, France). In 2015, Yuka & Chronoship will appear at 2Dasy Prog+ 2015 and Veruno Prog Fes (Italy).
