Yuna Serene

I fall in love with voices...

Just stumbled across a few performances by the singer who sung (and wrote?) the opening and closing songs for Kingdom hearts. The first is in English, the second in Japanese.

I think I just swooned a little.

Is it my imagination, or is there a tiny, tiny hint of Dar Williams in her voice? She does some interesting things with the riffs, and it reminds me of some of Dar's early playfulness with folk song style crossed with silly 80s pop.
