藤井 風 ( Fujii Kaze )

Fujii Kaze is a rising singer songwriter from Japan. He started practicing classical piano when he was little after being influenced by his father. Since he was 12, Kaze uploaded piano covers of popular songs on YouTube, which eventually caught the music industry’s attention and led him to make a label deal.

In May 2020, Kaze released his first album called “HELP EVER HURT NEVER” with a message not to hurt anyone but just help, while the world was right in the middle of the pandemic. It reached No. 1 on Billboard Japan’s Hot Album chart and got numerous prestigious awards in Japan. He was selected as YouTube Japan’s first Artist On The Rise and was also picked for Spotify’s global program, RADAR.

In September 2021, he hosted an aspirational event titled Fujii Kaze “Free” Live 2021 at NISSAN stadium. Hoping to free up people’s minds through his music, Kaze performed just by himself only with a grand piano at the 70,000 capacity stadium without any audience due to Japan’s state of emergency in response to the spread of COVID-19. It was livestreamed globally on YouTube and reached over 179,000 peak concurrent views. The event ended  up becoming the world’s No. 1 trending topic on Twitter.

In March 2022, Kaze released his second album called “LOVE ALL SERVE ALL”. The title is a phrase that he cherishes, which also aligns with the title of his first album. Again the album reached No. 1 on Billboard Japan’s Hot Album chart and got numerous prestigious awards.

In July 2022, the track “Shinunoga E-Wa” from his first album went viral in Thailand. With that, the song reached #4 on Spotify’s Global Viral chart, and also reached #1 on the platform’s  local viral charts in 23 countries including Thailand, Indonesia, Vietnam, Korea, UK, France, Canada, Brazil and Egypt. It reached #2 in the US. On Spotify’s Global Song chart, it reached #57, and also the #118th position on the US Billboard Global 200 chart, despite the song being originally released in 2020. On YouTube’s Global Top Songs chart, the song spent 12 weeks, reaching as high as #33.

In October 2022, he held a stadium show called “LOVE ALL SERVE ALL  STADIUM LIVE” at Panasonic Stadium Suita in Osaka, this time in front of a live audience and completely sold out at 70,000 capacity. The show is now available on Netflix globally.

From June to July 2023, he held 7-city, 11-show tour of Asia, with all shows sold out.
In May 2024, Fujii Kaze will be on his first U.S. tour, and in August, he will hold a one-man live concert at Nissan Stadium for two days.
