Tomoyasu Hotei, known as HOTEI (‘hoe-tay”), is an acclaimed Japanese guitarist, songwriter, composer, performer and record producer, who currently resides in London.
HOTEI has sold more than 40 million records in a 35 year career to date, and is best known internationally for the song “Battle Without Honor or Humanity”, which was made famous by its inclusion in Quentin Tarantino’s “Kill Bill” movie.
HOTEI began his career in 1981, as co-founder, guitarist and principal songwriter of legendary Japanese rock band BOOWY, (“boy”), who enjoyed phenomenal success as one of Japan’s most popular and revered bands.
HOTEI established himself as a solo artist in the late 80s, after the break up of BOOWY. His debut solo album “GUITARHYTHM” (1989) was recorded at Abbey Road Studios in London and its huge success was followed by a string of multi-million selling albums, each one musically different to the last.
HOTEI is also well known as a composer for film and TV, most notably for his iconic song “Battle without Honor or Humanity”, which was made famous by its inclusion in Tarantino’s masterpiece “Kill Bill” (2003). “Battle” has been extensively used in film, TV and sports programming ever since, and has become one of the most requested songs worldwide for synchronization use.
