Gold- and platinum records, #1 chart hits in both 2013 and 2014, participant in the Swedish Eurovision twice, nominated for prestigious music awards, started his own record label, touring for sold-out venues, acting in an international award-winning TV Drama series, and voice acting for Disney, signed to The Kennel as a songwriter for other artists.
This is just a selection of what YOHIO has done since his solo debut in 2012 as a 16-year old. With a family tree consisting of all musicians and actors maybe it is not that strange that the DNA that created YOHIO turned out a multi-faceted diamond.
With his extravagant way of expressing himself, the looks of a visual prince, a singing voice which can tackle English, Japanese, and Swedish, his naturally confident stage awareness, and his undoubtedly great fashion sense – YOHIO has captured the heart of thousands of fans all over the world.
YOHIO’s interest in Japan and Japanese culture took off seriously when he was 9 years old through manga and anime. He quickly fell in love with the Japanese culture, language, and music.
