Artist Biography
Yui Horie (堀江 由衣, born September 20, 1976) is a Japanese singer and voice actress. She has been affectionately nicknamed "Hocchan" (ほっちゃん) by her Japanese fans.
She hosts a weekly radio show called "Horie Yui no Tenshi no Tamago" (堀江由衣の天使のたまご, "Yui Horie's Angel Eggs"), and was the founding member of the singing group, Aice5. She was also a member of the since disbanded group Kurobara Hozonkai, with the stage name Yuiel. She won the award for Best Supporting Voice Actress in the 4th Seiyu Awards. Along with Nana Mizuki and Tamura Yukari, she is one of Japan's foremost voice actresses and idols.

Life and career:
Horie was born in Katsushika, Tokyo, Japan. She debuted in 1997 in the video game Voice Fantasia and for several years had minor roles in various anime. She landed her first leading role as Haruka in Kurogane Communication. The turning point in her career was not until 2000, when she won the role of Naru Narusegawa in the popular anime Love Hina. Other notable and defining career moments were taking the role of Tohru Honda in the anime Fruits Basket in 2001, and releasing her 1st music album (Mizutamari ni Utsuru Sekai) in 2000. She has since become one of the most popular anime voice actresses in Japan.
Horie formed a temporary unit called Yamato Nadeshiko with the popular voice actress Yukari Tamura in 2001. They released two singles, "Mō Hitori no Watashi" (もうひとりの私) and "Merry Merrily"--the latter of which was an insert song in the Love Hina Christmas Special. In October 2005, she founded Aice5, a J-Pop group consisting of 4 other voice actors, to help launch their careers. Aice5 was officially disbanded on September 20, 2007. She has collaborated with a few other artists, such as Unscandal in 2005 and Kurobara Hozonkai, a goth band in 2007.
Horie was affiliated with Arts Vision. However, she eventually left the agency in mid-2007 during an unrelated scandal in the agency's top management and became a freelance voice actress. Today, she's affiliated with VIMS, a division of I'm Enterprise. She has published seven independent musical albums. Nearly all of them incorporate at least one track from an anime she has worked with. She currently releases music under the Starchild label (a subdivision of King Records).
Her radio show, which first started broadcast in October 2002, is "Horie Yui no Tenshi no Tamago" (堀江由衣の天使のたまご) and can currently be heard on the station JOQR (文化放送) (AM 1134 kHz) at 22:00 - 22:30 every Sundays. With her signature Angel Beam catchphrase and introducing famous guests such as angela, Nana Mizuki and Megumi Hayashibara, the show has ran in excess of 500 episodes.
Her official fanclub is The Black Cat Alliance (黒ネコ同盟とは)
