The alias of alternative pop singer, songwriter and producer Carley Austin, SILA can be described as a hybrid of electronic, soul, with shades of contemporary R&B. With conviction and confidence she makes a sole sound that are introspective, reflective, victorious, yet celestial with glittering, dulcet vocal harmonies.
Heavily influenced by artists such as Banks, Shlohmo, George Maple, Tokimonsta and The Internet, the Sydney-based songstress has been developing the project in the past year. In 2017, she was selected to partake in ‘All Girl Electronic’, which opened her up to music production and saw her improve her skills with mentors such as Rainbow Chan, Antonia Gauci, Hannah Lockwood and many more. Since then, SILA has performed at The Plot festival, Bodega Collective’s ‘Block Party’, and has featured and co-produced with Korky Buchek on their single, ‘Midnight’.
SILA plans to continue writing & producing, and is set to release her debut EP beginning of 2019.
