|A sample of a cover song by 4Yen|
"Bokura no Let It Be", composed by Harry
4Yen (4円), pronounced Yoen (ヨエン), is an utaite known for his warm, smooth, soothing, and pleasant voice, which has a rich, almost sonorous quality to it. Though his voice is described as being rather soft and almost "passive", his singing style is good at carrying emotional weight. As such, his voice (as well as his vocal style) is often compared to that of professional singers' in terms of sound and quality.
Although his first entry into the utattemita category was uploaded in 2010, he has a very sporadic and somewhat erratic upload schedule, generally posting covers only once every few months. However, despite the typically long periods of time between uploads, he holds namahousous fairly frequently - in which he usually either chats with his fans or sings, occasionally with the accompaniment of an acoustic guitar.
His debut cover was "RAINBOW GIRL", which currently has 18K views and 400 mylists, while his first hit solo cover was "Bokura no Let It Be", which currently has 124K views and 8K mylists. His most popular solo cover is "Hitorinbo Envy", which currently has 508K views and 17.9K mylists and has since been released as a single on iTunes.
He is very private and secretive about his personal details, even to the point of occasionally wiping his Twitter feed. Because of this, almost nothing is known about him aside from the very little that can be gleaned from the first-hand accounts of his real-life friends and other acquaintances.
