Having a father of a musician, Jun Inoue grew up as a child playing around with synthesizer and recording equipments. He quickly learned the piano at the age of 6. When he was 7, he received his first computer that allowed him to get familiar with DAWS and music productions. He began playing the drums at 15. When he was 19, he studied at Berklee College of Music in Boston.
After graduating college and settling with his music sessions, Jun Inoue joined Johnny's Entertainment Inc., a record company affiliated with Johnny's Corporation. As an assistant A&R, he was in charge of a boy group called Kinki Kids. After transferring to the Johnny's publishing sector and becoming a production director, Jun Inoue was in charge of Johnny's Jr. that currently had Hideki Takizawa as the leader.

With his achievements, Jun Inoue later transferred to J-STORM Corporation, where he became in charge of music production and A&R for Arashi. His support led the group to hit millions of sales for their songs ’PIKA★★NCHI DOUBLE’ and ‘Love So Sweet’.
In 2012, he left the company to enter a law school. In parallel with his academics, he established JI Corporation (currently Amadeus Code, Inc.) to start his own music production business.
