Artist Profile: ShounenT aka Sako Tomohisa

ShounenT is a singer who debuted as Sako Tomohisa on March 28th, 2012 under Sony Music Entertainment with the single "Ai Kotoba". On June 6th, he released his 2nd single "Zutto" which is the opening song of the anime, Kimi to Boku 2.

However, ShounenT has long been active as far back as 2009 as an utaite. Utaite is a term for people who cover previously released songs and post them on the popular video site Nico Nico Douga; under the utattemita category. Utaite is unique for NND singers, differentiating from the general term of "kashu" (singer). Generally utaite cover J-pop, anime, game and vocaloid original songs. However it is not unusual for them to release original music/drama CDs during events such as Comiket and Vocaloid M@ster.

ShounenT was born on December 26th, 1991 in Hokkaido and is currently a vocational college student. He is known for his acoustic arrangements, which other singers and himself use. He has a soft and light voice that is sometimes accompanied by his own guitar. The "T" in his stage name stands for his real name, Tomohisa. Thus his fans call him T-kun. He also has a younger brother, Malon, who is a odoite (dancer) on NND.
