A singer in the Kencyrath is the composer and performer of songs and stories. Aside from diplomats, only singers have the right to the Lawful Lie; their songs do not have to be wholly truthful and there is no dishonor for them in embellishing or neatening a tale.

Singers train at Mount Alban alongside scrollsmen, and there is much good-natured rivalry between the two, exacerbated since the Fall by the fact that, in the Kencyrath's desperate flight, stories and scholarly records got muddled, leaving some things still uncertain in status as to whether they were fact or fantasy.[1]

Singers and scholars both wear a robe as a mark of their status, although a singer's robe is more likely to be elaborately and colorfully decorated.[2]
