brooklyn based boston spun singer songwriter

BIO

   Hatched and watered on the tropical island state of Singapore, Enya sang her face off to Disney animations as a child. She began the classical route, taking piano lessons at the age of four – gradually shifting more fully into singing, first in choirs, and then in everything else from duos to bands to a cappella groups. Enya discovered jazz during her National University of Singapore (NUS) days, from which she graduated with a Bachelor’s degree majoring Political Science.

Following, Enya attended Berklee College of Music from 2013, where she dabbled in production, music technology, and a myriad of genres she could at best scrape the surface of leading up to the completion of her program. Enya graduated with the class of 2016, graduating her Bachelor of Music dual major track summa cum laude.

    Late to the game in songwriting, NyaLi began transforming her melodies into more than quickly forgotten ideas halfway through her time at Berklee College of Music. Her style is both personal and personable, based off observations and universal dilemmas encircling the human condition; her music has been labelled soulful indie pop: folky, with definite jazz R&B tones : Ingrid Michaelson meets Norah Jones for tea, with Sara Bareilles showing up halfway. Summer 2017 saw the culmination of a season's labor manifest in YOUR OWN, NyaLi's debut EP comprising 3 whimsical tunes that bare vulnerability, but also resolve - launched across digital platforms in May, and supported by release shows in Boston MA, as well as in NyaLi's native Singapore. NyaLi's 2018 gig schedule is an exciting one - be sure to check in & say hi if you are anywhere near in the world ;)

​Teaching

Enya soared through her vocal performance major at Berklee, and is more than happy to share her technical knowledge and personal practices regarding singing and utilizing the voice.

She believes in a holistic approach that respects both the physiology and mentality - this varies from person to person - that optimal singing requires. Her experience with styles ranges from contemporary pop to jazz and musical theatre, and her commitment to breath support is absolute.

Enya is available for beginner to intermediate music theory and or voice and or piano lessons, as well as stage performance coaching and audition prep - she is based in New York and seasonally in Singapore, but also happily offers video lessons via Skype.
