About Shin

Shin Adachi is a native of Tokyo, Japan. He taught himself to play the piano by ear, starting as an infant. His mother's diary from when he was 26 weeks old states, "Today, Shin figured out that a sound is produced when he touches the keys with enough force." At age 14, he was inspired by his classmate's performance of Chopin's Nocturne in Eb, and started playing and writing music more seriously.

Outside of life as a musician, he has had an illustrious career as an educator and engineer. He holds a Bachelor's degree in Aerospace Engineering, and has worked with organizations such as NASA JPL, Synergy Academies, Girls Who Code, Virgin Galactic, and Google.

Shin is currently based in Los Angeles, CA.

His piano albums, Memories (2015) and Portraits (2017) can be found on:
