KATEI is a dynamic classically trained rock violinist who is recognized as one of Australasia’s most exuberant and unconventional artists that has even Beethoven rocking in his grave.

Emigrating from Japan to Australia with his family in 1990, KATEI grew up calling Brisbane home playing the violin since the age of 5. KATEI’s passion for the violin sparked the beginning of his journey in pursuing his dreams to become an international artist. In pursuit of his dreams he completed both Bachelor of Music degree majoring in Classical Violin and Graduate Diploma majoring in Contemporary Violin at the Queensland Conservatorium of Music Griffith University, he then traveled to Japan and redefined himself as a rock violinist in 2007.

KATEI’s unique style and flare set him apart from other artists and ultimately landed him an opportunity with a major record label, Victor Entertainment Japan. Since November 2009, KATEI has released numerous albums and has since been performing globally, including Japan and Australia, China, Korea and Taiwan, alongside the world’s major artists.
