YUI / Flower Flower

Post by Dnee on Sun Dec 16, 2007 6:43 pm



Name: YUI
Birthday: 1987.3.26
Horoscope: Aries
Birth Place: Fukuoka
Height: 155cm
Blood Type: AB
Favorite Place: Shinguu Beach. (a beautiful beach near her hometown)
Hobbies: Watching movies, reading, acoustic guitar, badminton
Singer and song writer since 18. Joined Sony Group SD Audition in 2004 March and got the highest rank.


YUI is a Japanese J-pop/J-rock artist, born March 26, 1987 in Fukuoka, Japan. She sings, plays the acoustic guitar, and writes her own songs. Two of her songs are featured in Bleach, a Japanese anime series, which has brought her some international attention. The two songs are "LIFE" and "Rolling star", the fifth ending and fifth opening themes, respectively.

Her first full album, From Me to You, was released February 22, 2006. Among its thirteen tracks, nine of them were previously unreleased, and have been well received from her fans. The album has already reached as high as the weekly ninth most sold album in Japan, with the main track, "TOKYO", reaching the number four spot on the MTV Japan's song charts.

YUI began writing poems in ninth grade. At the age of sixteen, by recommendation of her mother, she began studying song, songwriting, and guitar at a private music school in her native Fukuoka. Aspiring to become a professional, she carried her guitar around and sang at local places such as the seashore of Shingu, and in the middle of the rice fields of Kaminofu.

In March 2004, she sang three songs at an audition hosted by Sony Music Japan, as opposed to the audition rule that a participant could only sing two songs. All judges evaluated her with the highest score, which caused a fierce scramble among labels. She first sang "Why Me", which was later coupled with her debut single, followed by "It's happy line" and "I know", the latter of which was included on her indie single. Sitting cross-legged on the floor, she strummed her guitar and sang. The judges and the others present claimed that "the performance created a tremendous aura from her heavenly voice, and captured the hearts of the whole audience".

Upon leaving her home of Fukuoka for Tokyo, YUI wrote the song "feel my soul". She was planning its release on an indie label as a tribute to her hometown, when the song caught the ears of Fuji TV producer Mr. Yamaguchi, who happened to see the demo video clip. He claimed YUI's voice haunted him so much that he went out of his way to visit the recording studio himself. He even made his channel's prime time drama an extraordinary tie-in with YUI's debut track.

Although she is uncomfortable talking to people, she enjoys communicating with her audience at street performances in the Tenjin district of Fukuoka.

YUI starred in a movie released on June 17, 2006, titled Midnight Sun (in Japanese Taiyou no Uta, which was screened at the 2006 Cannes Film Festival.

Kind of OT, but with the recent influx of YUI Lover members, I was wondering: How many members here are members there too? I'm a pretty big YUI fan, but I've never managed to join that forum... yet. I think I probably will soon.
