Childhood and education
Saiki was raised as an only child in Yamanashi by her father who was a woodcutter, and her mother who was working at a lawyer’s office.
Saiki had a rather normal childhood, spending most of her free time with her peers, playing with dolls and occasionally playing video games.
She became interested in music at the age of nine, and around the same time began attending a music school at which she practiced her vocal skills. Upon enrolling at a high school at the age of 14, she formed a school band with several other girls, but they soon disbanded and so she went solo. Saiki was very active during her teenage years, spending nearly all of her time outdoors either at school, working or singing. She matriculated in 2012, and didn’t enroll at a college but focused on her singing career.
Career as a singer and the band Band-Maid
After Miku decided to form Band-Maid in July 2013, she found out on the internet that Kanami Tono was a singer and a songwriter, and so invited her to join the band – Tono suggested Akane Hirose who became the band’s drummer, while Hirose then suggested Misa, who is today the band’s bassist.
The girls made their debut performance at Osaka Deep on 24 July 2013, and then held an audition to find a fifth band member, and Saiki was eventually chosen – they debuted as a five-girl band on 22 August, performing at the P Festival held at Tokyo’s Shibuya-AX.

On 14 February 2018, the girls released their second studio album – “World Domination” – which peaked at #9 on the Oricon Weekly Albums Chart, and on the same day the repackaged version of their first studio album came out entitled “Maid in Japan” – it counted two new songs and peaked at #26 on the Oricon Weekly Albums Chart.

On 25 July 2018, Band-Maid released their new single “Start Over” followed by two new songs “Bubble” and “Glory” on 16 January 2019. On 3 April 2019, the girls adopted a new name -Band-Maiko – and under it released their new EP “Band-Maiko”, which featured their old songs performed with traditional Japanese instruments.
In April 2019, the girls announced that they would be touring around the US, the UK, France, Germany and Taiwan, in collaboration with Live Nation Entertainment. On 4 December, they released their sixth EP “Conqueror” which topped the Oricon Weekly Rock Albums Chart, and peaked at #9 on the Oricon Weekly Albums Chart.
