Most influenced by Great American songbook jazz, motown soul, and folk pop, NyaLi's artist journey is the outcome of her own observations on the human condition, encasing both sincere vulnerability and raw honesty.
Her evolving original sound has been likened stylistically to a melange of Norah Jones, Erykah Badu, Amy Winehouse, and Lady Gaga; her writing
 bears evidence of her musical heroes, including music icons Ella Fitzgerald, Stevie Wonder, Joni Mitchell, the Beatles, and Simon&Garfunkel.

Born and raised in tropical Singapore city state, NyaLi - who goes familiarly as Enya offstage - is an active member of the local music community, performing live and in studio, championing artistic collaborations, as well as teaching both privately and institutionally.
