A sample of a cover song by Lasah
"clock lock works" -Acoustic ver.-, composed by Hachi

lasah (らさ) is an utaite and gamer known for her warm, delicate, yet solid voice, with a fluttery, almost vibrato-like quality to it. While she usually sings with a full and mature voice to match the more serious songs she tends to cover, she is also capable of sounding high, soft and more stereotypically "cute".

Though recently she has become mainly known for her vocal work, like Chomaiyo, she was one of many former Ustream/ haishinsha (配信者, gamers and web radio hosts) who made the transition to Nico Nico Douga in mid-late 2009.[2] However, despite becoming an utaite, she has continued to Let's Play games; her playthroughs can be found here.

She is good friends with producers such as Hachi, sasakure.UK, and kous, and occasionally provides vocals for some of their original songs. In addition to this, she has also done translation work for various producers, including MikitoP and sasakure.UK. She also remains friends with fellow ex-Ustreamer and utaite Chomaiyo, who occasionally mixes for her.

Though she currently resides in Kansai, she is fluent in English as she moved to America shortly after she was born, and lived there until she was 18 years old.[2][3] Her first and second albums are sung entirely in the English language, and she has also covered several songs with English lyrics she has written, such as "Kagaribito"Nv.gif and "Campanella" Nv.gif.
