Keiichi "KG" Horii

Born March 5, 1987 (31years-old)


Keiichi Horii was born in Hokkaido Japan to a musical family. Youngest of three, he started playing bass at the tender age of eight at church where his brother and sister were also playing music.  By the time he was in highschool Keiichi was already known in Hokkaido as a great bass player, joining supporting band for popular Japanese artists.  

At the age of 17, Keiichi passed the test and was granted the highest  scholarship to Berklee College of Music, but could not move to the U.S. for family reasons.  He instead went to Koyo Conservatory of Music (a member of Berklee International Network).  Even while in school Keiichi continued to appear on shows with professional bands in Japan.  He moved to Tokyo upon graduation to continue to persue his career as a musician.  

In 2011, Keiichi was invited to the U.S. as a bassist for a gospel group tour, where he met and recorded with Henry Panion III (one of the producers for Stevie Wonder).  He was offered a scholarship to Alabama University, but decided to return to Tokyo.  Keiichi also has played for artists like Tommy Walker, Linda McCrary Fisher and Ron Brown.  


Keiichi now tours with Japanese and Korean Pop artists such as BoA and Super Junior K.R.Y., and many others around the world.

He is a loving husband and a proud father of two.
