Nyla XO is an LA-born, Chicago-based singer/songwriter, producer and keyboardist. She's toured nationwide with Betty Who and has graced the America’s Got Talent stage as a beloved member of the house band. Her music has also been featured on The CW, BET, and Netflix.
At her core, Nyla is an end-to-end artist, crafting everything from striking harmonies to supporting visuals. Her music meditates on the best bits (and occasional pitfalls) of being human — from passionate love to personal growth — and does so with a vibrant-yet-velvety touch, drawing inspiration from other genre-bending artists like India.Arie, Nelly Furtado, and Kimbra.
She’s a musician, a maker and a *delightfully* sassy motivator. From studio to stage to screen, Nyla XO leaves nothing unexplored — and encourages her listeners to do the same.
