Since young, NyaLi has always held a special regard for words, in particular the way they are  strung together, deliberately or not. Songwriting then, was simply a natural extension of this interest, that she stumbled upon while attending the renowned Berklee College of Music, from which she graduated with a Bachelor of Music in late 2016. 
 

Audibly influenced by jazz, motown soul, and folk styles, NyaLi's originals are often product of her own observations of the human condition, encasing both raw vulnerability and sincere honesty. Her evolving sound has been compared to Norah Jones, Erykah Badu and baby Michael Jackson. It bears evidence of her heroes, including music icons Ella Fitzgerald, Stevie Wonder, Joni Mitchell, the Beatles, and Simon&Garfunkel.Following her maiden music single release in 2015, NyaLi has put out various other singles, with her most recent, LINK UP, being a rap collaboration that playlisted on Spotify in summer 2019 and continues to climb, at 40k views. NyaLi's 2017 solo debut EP YOUR OWN has received no less than glowing reviews from international audiences.

Born and raised in tropical Singapore city state, NyaLi - who also goes familiarly as Enya offstage - is an active member of the local music community, performing regularly via luxury cruise yacht the Royal Albatross, event companies like High Notes Singapore, Musical Touch Singapore, and Merry Bees, as well as collaborating with local artists such as Subhas, and teaching - both privately and institutionally.

 

NyaLi considers songwriting her favourite narrative style yet. Her time spent living abroad in the US, as well as briefly in England and Spain, have definitely impacted the content and style of her original material, as well as developed her tremendously as a performer and artist. Presently based in Singapore, NyaLi continues to collaborate with producers, artists and collectives across the US, UK and Europe. 
 

An accomplished a performer, NyaLi counts herself blessed to have shared the stage with internationally acknowledged music icons such as Taiwanese American pop celebrity Wang Lee Hom, famed Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli, and two time Grammy award winning prodigy Jacob Collier; she has sung world renowned venues like Boston Symphony Hall (2016), Carnegie Hall (2017), Madison Square Garden (2017), and Newport Folk Festival (2016 and 2017).

NyaLi's recent festival features include opening the 11th annual Boston Greenfest at Boston City Hall in 2018, Earthfest 2019 at Marina Barrage, and Beerfest Asia in Sept 2018 and June 2019. Back in Singapore, NyaLi is definitely a regular face for live music at local venues, showcases, and corporate functions around town - her clientele includes established household names like Samsung, BMW, and Heineken
