Kurenai (紅) is an utaite known for her thin, gentle, yet crisp and clear voice. Her singing style is often described as being "sweet" and bouncy, and is usually compared to those of J-Pop-type singers. Her song choices tend towards soft ballads or sugary pop, as she considers belting out notes and putting force behind her voice to be one of her weaknesses as a singer; however she does occasionally break this mold to good effect, such as in her cover of "Kodoku no Hate".
She is a close friend of AtarimeP, who often mixes her covers. She is also one of the four core members of the Atarimegumi, a loosely organized group of close friends (led by the eponymous AtarimeP) that, in addition to collaborating, advertising each other's covers, and holding namahousous together, was behind the planning of the Yozora Chorus Project. She is also close friends with irony, who she considers one of her best friends as well as a reliable drinking buddy in real life.
Her utattemita debut was a cover of "Melt", which she later redid , as she was discontent with her first attempt. Her first hit cover was "Just Be Friends", which currently has 26K views, while her most popular cover is "Melancholic", which currently has 65K views and 2K mylists as of September 2013.
She has been on an extended hiatus from the utattemita scene since September 2012, however she continues to communicate with her friends and fans via Twitter and mixi.
