I'm looking for a young adult book series. It was about an enclave of singers who's songs had magical properities. They were an isolated group with people who could not sing having to remain within the area as workers to pay back the singers for their raising. The singers also all had their hair dyed blue.
The plot of one of the books was about the search for a young male singer (I'm unable to remember the name but I'm fairly sure it started with a K) who ran away from the enclave in order to find his own way and ended up with a group of pirates before being brought back home.
I know this isn't a lot of information but does this perhaps ring any bells with anyone?

You're thinking of The Echorium Sequence by Katherine Roberts. The first book is Song Quest, the second is The Crystal Mask, and the third is Dark Quetzal. Song Quest is about Rialle and the boy you're thinking of is Kherron. I loved these books! Hope I was of help.
