KK is an utaite known for his uniquely resonant, sonorous singing voice and distinct vibrato. Despite uploading since mid 2009, he has only recently begun to gain popularity, thanks to the consistently high quality of his uploads. His voice is best suited to folk or indie rock type music, though he can sing in other genres.
He is good friends with producers Harry, whoo, and yukkedoluce, who have all mixed one or more of his covers and composed original songs with him as the lead vocalist, as well as other utaite such as Chomaiyo and 31, both of whom he has collaborated with. He usually mixes and encodes his own songs and videos, and occasionally mixes for other utaite.
His normal speaking voice is notably much higher and more soft than his singing voice would suggest, which often surprises first-time listeners in his namahousous. This, combined with his often soft-spoken nature, often leads his fans to describe him as being "cute" rather than "cool".
His first cover was "Sayonara Astronauts", which has since been deleted; his first hit cover was "Starduster", which has since been set to private viewing only along with many of his early covers. His most popular hit solo cover is "Sore ga Anata no Shiawase Toshitemo", which currently has 1M views and 22K mylists as of October 2016.
On June 9th, 2015, KK officially debuted as his real name, "Ken Kamikita", under the music label, Victor Entertainment. He released the song "Mist" off his first album, "SCOOP" set to release September 9th, 2015.
He participated in the 2nd Annual Singlink Chorus Competition 2011, as part of the 2011 incarnation of the chorus group Unknown Protocol. They sung "Sekiran'un" as their first entry, and "Uninstall" in the small final after not managing to place in the top 10.
His utaite name is derived from his real name's initials.
He is often associated with crows; in addition to representing him in the unit name CrowCat, crows and black feathers/wings are often used as a motif when depicting him both in official artwork (such as the cover of STAGES) as well as by fanartists.
Although he is noted for being a technically strong singer, he has admitted that he has had no vocal training whatsoever, and that all of his singing skills come either naturally or are self-taught.
His favorite foods are crab cakes and Mitarashi dango, while his least favorite food is sweet and sour pork. He also describes himself as having a sweet tooth, and cannot handle spicy or salty foods. He also obsesses over pudding.
The one place in the world he would like to visit is Canada's Prince Edward Island.
