Darwin born Thaylia is an electronic folk singer-songwriter-producer based in Sydney. She is of Greek/Aboriginal heritage and her childhood years was spent in the red dusty plains of a small outback town called Kununurra in the far north Kimberley's of Western Australia. She then moved to Perth when she was 12. Growing up she never had any music lessons and it wasn't until the age of 23 when she discovered her passion of music and picked up an instrument for the very first time. After floundering for a decade due to her struggle with addiction, she reignited this passion in 2012 when she took a chance and quit her high paying corporate job and sold her house to pursue her career in music full time.
Thaylia (a recent a mentor for All Girl Electronic - an initiative of ICE & MusicNSW), is releasing her latest single 'Waiting' premiered by Purple Sneakers - http://purplesneakers.com.au/2018/09/listen-thaylia-waiting/.
This is the first single off her long awaited self-produced EP 'Into My Soul' (coming Nov 2018), in which she questions, if there was such a 'Great Being' that existed that was only loving, what would it be like to be loved by them? What would they want to say to us? And what would their feelings be towards us? This single is about Love being offered as a gift that gently knocks at our door 'Waiting' to enter our lives and help us flourish in our life, passions and desires.
The song received some extra special moulding by the hands of Paul Mac, one of Australia's pioneer's in electronic music and is an electronic fusion delight starting out soft and soulful to big and fun future bass synth layers!
To celebrate the release Thaylia will be performing alongside other talented performers on the 28 September 2018 at Parramatta Pop-Up Friday Night Lights hosted by City of Parramatta and Sydney Fringe Festival.
