The Polish Ambassador, interview with singer/songwriter Ayla Nereo
A long time ago, I interviewed Ayla on Mornings in Sonoma when I discovered the band she created with her brother, Beatbeat Whisper. This time we talked to her about her solo projects, as well as her new group project, Polish Ambassador.
Ayla Nereo‘s voice hits straight to the heart. With an array of loop-pedals by her side, she builds layer upon layer of vocal melodies into fierce, sweeping harmonies and weaves syncopated threads of guitar, kalimba, piano, and percussion into each live performance. Her lucid storytelling and lyrical imagery are water for the thirsty soul; words and sounds that crack open the heart, and embody the many folds of our own selves
All of her projects can be found under the umbrella of her Official Website.
Here is the interview. Original air date: 8/12/14
