YUI is a Japanese pop artist born and raised in Fukuoka, Japan. She grew up in a fatherless house and, consequently, holds no memory of her father. She sings and plays guitar, and writes her own songs. She is still relatively unknown outside of Japan, but her song LIFE, from her single by the same name, was the 5th ending theme for BLEACH, a popular Japanese anime series, which has brought her some international fame.
Yui's family consists of her mother and herself only. As for her father, he left them when she was roughly 3 years old. That's why when she moved to Shinguu she only had one other family member. She holds no memory of her father.
Yui plays guitar, drums and piano. She learned how to play the piano at the music school where she learned how to play the guitar.
Yui has about 7~8 acoustic guitars, 6~7 electric guitars and one bass guitar.
Yui feels more comfortable playing guitar and singing while sitting down, cross legged than standing or sitting on the chair. Sitting cross legged is her style of playing guitar.
