I’ll never forget the first time I saw Ayla Nereo.  I was headed to The Polish Ambassador at the Fillmore Auditorium, and before the show I had an antsy feeling to get to the venue early.  I knew there were openers, but I hadn’t done any research on them.  I decided to head over anyway and as I walked in, my body was filled with an other-wordly enchantment.  I was whisked away on an auditory journey and became completely lost in the music; myself and the entire crowd were encapsulated in an orb of heavenly sound.  When I finally came to I thought, “I have to see who’s producing this magic.”  I pushed through the crowd and as I got closer I saw the Polish Ambassador onstage with a beautiful goddess.  The goddess turned out to be Ayla Nereo, the source of intoxicating vocals that were making my heart sing.  The duo turned out to be Wildlight.

Ever since that night Ayla has been on my radar as a music lover and journalist.  As I made plans to cover ARISE Music Festival (see review here), I saw her name appear over and over on the schedule.  I snagged her onsite for an interview, and was amazed to discover that her spirit is just as beautiful as her voice.  Take a look, let us know what you think in the comments, and keep spreading the sparkle!
