Task is a very new utaite, having started covering Vocaloid songs just this year. He is different from the PV/CG-maker Task, by the way XD;. You might have known him if you follow Nano, since they've been in a collab before.
Task has a low, boyish voice and clear diction, a quality similar to ShounenT and Aisu but with a bit of huskiness. He is also known for his vibrato, mostly apparent in his low, stretchy notes. Because of these, he suits singing ballads and slow pop songs wherein he utilizes the smooth charm of his voice perfectly. Still, he also sings rockish songs, which always sound interesting because he often sounds almost short of breath, but he surprises people by pushing through wonderfully. He also seems to have a short range, so he's most fit to sing low-key ballads. He rarely uses effects and adlibs in his covers, although he has an interesting way of phrasing his lyrics differently from the original versions.
While his sincere, straightfoward covers gain only praises for his singing voice, Task doesn't seem to get enough limelight due to the fact that he always sings popular songs usually at the time when people cover the song a lot. Still, for a new singer, he has gained quite an impressive following, not to mention a long list of covers.
• Calc. -piano ver- (JimmythumbP original)
• Mozaik Role (DECO*27 original)
• Namae no Nai Uta (DATEKEN original)
• Hello/How Are You? -acoustic original- (Nanou original)
• fix (keeno original)
• Shinpakusuu #0822 (w/ Nano; ChouchoP original)
I followed Task immediately after hearing his cover of Calc. -piano ver-, which impressed me so much. I always like his type of voices (as you might notice from the trend of my spotlights ^^; ) and it's not difficult to get used and love his singing. I just wish he'd be a bit more adventurous and try singing lesser known Vocaloid songs. Either way, it would be nice to see him improve and continue his career as an utaite from here on.
