Singer Songwriter Producer
Indie, Motown, Folk, Soul, Jazz
Once upon a time in 2013, Singaporean singer songwriter NyaLi packed her bags and turned her life 180 degrees anti-clockwise, moving to Boston MA and eventually NYC New York, USA - where she began to find her voice as an artist, and hone her musical craft.
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 sound has been compared to Norah Jones, Erykah Badu and baby Michael Jackson. 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.
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 prominent names like Samsung, Omnia Lifestyle, Heineken and Woh Hup Pte Ltd.
