On his official Twitter account, Swedish singer YOHIO has confirmed that he will be voicing an upcoming English-Japanese bilingual voice bank for music software company PowerFX, the company behind English VOCALOID voice banks Sweet Ann, Big Al and Oliver. PowerFX CEO Bil Bryant also confirmed with us the news, stating that recording had already begun, although pricing and other details have not been set yet. The effeminate-looking YOHIO, currently 17, has been featured on Japanese music news site BARKS and was influenced by visual kei culture. He had already released a mini album in Japan last April and is set to release a full album this April 24 through Universal Japan. Rumors about PowerFX making a bilingual voice bank with a Swedish singer (as well as subsequent plans to make an American sound bank) were sparked by an email from Bil Bryant to a customer that was posted online before the parties involved were ready to properly announce the project. The posted email also stated that PowerFX was two months away from a release.
