Ayla Nereo is a singer, songwriter, poet, producer – and warrior for the light. Known for her intricate lyrics, unique vocal melodies and fingerpicking guitar songs that harken back to an earlier era, Ayla melds genres weaving in live vocal looping, beats and percussion, orchestral string arrangements, Celtic melodies, and even dashes of hip-hop wordplay. Born in Sonoma County, CA, Nereo was unschooled until the age of 13, spending her childhood outside fostering her creativity, wonder and connection to magic. Raised on Cat Stevens, Joni Mitchell, Dylan, Beatles, with a deep love of classical music, Ayla began her singer/songwriter career after graduating from Stanford. In 2014, Ayla signed onto independent record label Jumpsuit Records. To date Ayla has released 10 albums in total: 5 solo albums, 2 Wildlight albums (the collaboration project of Ayla and electronic music composer David Sugalski, aka The Polish Ambassador), 1 collaboration album with Mr Lif and The Polish Ambassador, and 2 albums with sibling project Beatbeat Whisper.
