カナエ (KANAE) is a not-so-prolific Nicovideo singer I discovered a few weeks ago. She is seriously underrated because her songs are very good, but the most Mylists she’s gotten is 50. She lives in China and is currently studying Japanese.

Her voice is very clear with the extremely natural mixing, which ends up sounding like there wasn’t much editing done to make it sound better than it is, like with usual singers, probably. Since she didn’t credit anyone for mixing/encoding/mastering, I’m assuming that she did everything herself. She uses her stable natural voice a lot, and there isn’t much strain on the high notes in her newer songs. Also, her English pronounciation is extremely spot on, as is very apparent in her rendition of blue bird. If you listen to her older songs, you can see how much she’s improved, so she is only getting better and better as she sings more. I really look forward to hearing more from her.

Please give her songs a listen! I believe her best work are “blue bird” (composed by TokuP) and “アリスにさよなら” (A Farewell to Alice).
