brooklyn based boston spun singer songwriter


   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 – several years on, she gradually shifted more fully into singing, transitioning from choir to emulating pop style belting. 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 2013-2016, where she would dabble in production, music technology, and a myriad of genres she could at best scrape the surface of leading up to the completion of her Bachelor of Music degree.

  1. Singer-songwriter
    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. Since her debut R&B soaked original 'In My Head', NyaLi has not ever stopped writing for long - her style is both personal and personable, based off observations and universal dilemmas encircling the human condition. Her music can broadly be described as soulful indie pop: folky, with definite influences from jazz and R&B : Ingrid Michaelson meets Norah Jones for tea, with Regina Spektor showing up unexpectedly. Summer 2017 saw the culmination of a season's labor manifest in YOUR OWN, NyaLi's debut EP release consisting of 3 whimsical tunes vulnerably written, and soulful conveyed - launched across digital platforms on 17 May EST, and supported by release shows on Boston MA, as well as in NyaLi's native Singapore. Her Fall '17 gig schedule is filling up - be sure to check in & say hi if you are anywhere nearby one of them ;)

    Enya is seasoned with both studio and live performance vocals, and comfortable singing lead and background parts. In November 2016, she had the honor of sharing the Berklee Symphony Orchestra stage with famed Taiwanese pop singer and recent honorary Berklee doctorate recipient Wang Lee Hom; in December, Enya sang amidst a 200 strong ensemble specially coordinated for 2016 two category Grammy nominee and YouTube music sensation Jacob Collier, at his concert in MIT's Kresge Auditorium. Elsewhere, 2016 saw Enya involved in various Berklee and post-Berklee projects, including contributing vocals for the full length self titled album of recently nominated John Lennon songwriting contest finalist, Colombian Latina composer and singer Alea, and Turkish singer songwriter Alper Tuzcu's debut album, Between 12 Waters - for which she also performed at his album release shows in Summer and Fall 2016. 2017 has been eventful, with Enya performing in colorful vocal ensembles for cultural festivals like the Boston Japan Fest (Spring), Newport Folk Fest (Summer), and as featured vocalist for the Jacob Ijlst band Project, at well recognized venues including the Middle East Downstairs in Cambridge MA. In the studio, she has been core soprano vocalist in such library recording projects as http://songschildrensing.com/ –an audio catalogue of the late Aline Shader’s compositions for adolescents, that is still continually being added to.

Having graduated from Berklee with vocal performance as one of her dual majors, Enya is more than happy to share her technical knowledge and personal practices with regards to singing and utilizing the voice.

She believes in a disciplined holistic approach that respects both the physiology and mentality - this itself 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 music and or voice lessons in Boston and seasonally in Singapore, and also happily offers video lessons via Skype. Do drop a note using the contact form tab for rates and other enquires :)
