A sample of a cover song by Rockleetist.
"Strobe Nights -English Anniversary Ver.-", composed by kz, lyrics by Rockleetist

Rockleetist is an American YouTube singer known for creating and singing English translyrics of Vocaloid songs. She is one of the most well known and popular YouTube singers, with over 35K subscribers on her channel. She sometimes goes to conventions to participate in panels in the USA.

In November 2012, she became a YouTube partner with Fullscreen Inc. As is said in her announcement, this is expected to encourage her to produce more video content for her fans.

Her voice is often metallic and techno-like, resembling some of her depictions. She sings in a voice that often attempts to emulates that of Hatsune Miku in many of her Vocaloid songs. This is done using autotune, which the audience has mixed reactions to. For other songs, she is able to sing with a voice that is described as "soft and soothing".

Part of the process of creating a cover is explained in her list of frequently asked questions. The time required depends on the song, and varies from 2 hours to days on end. She "spends hours upon hours sitting at a desk with a thesaurus, rhyming dictionary, and notebooks working out lyrics, synonyms, and antonyms for hundreds of words that will allow" her to rewrite the lyrics into an acceptable form while maintaining the original meaning. "She may take a sentence and write out several different ways in different styles to see what flows with the song in a [...] fluid and natural manner." Creating duets is described as an even more difficult process because doing so requires effort in vocal blending and filtering the sound correctly. [1]

Despite her popularity and busy livelyhood, she enjoys receiving comments, questions, requests, and fanart. She expecially like the drawings of herself by Ookz as is noted in a tumblr post.
