“We just might have discovered the next major R&B star.”  – NYLON Magazine

“Every few years an artist comes along that stops you dead in your tracks. Disrupts you from what you’re doing. I had that moment about a year ago when clicking play on Nylo’s Soundcloud page.” – Fake Shore Drive

“This track feels like you’re spinning in a field with gold dust being poured over your head.” – Singers Room

“It was obvious that this Chicago girl with the pipes of an angel is on the cusp of a hellish ride to stardom.” – Pigeons And Planes

“It’s not surprising Nylo has attracted such a talented cast of individuals around her because her voice really does shine.” – HypeTrak

“While Nylo may be very much part of a trend rather than dictating it, she still is delivering more realized music than many of her blog-friendly peers due to both her airy voice and an instinct for hooks.” – Pitchfork

“Devoid of sentimentality or melodramatic emotion, her writing is like that of a brutally honest singer-songwriter’s, transferred onto bleeding edge R&B and replete with kitchen-sink, Soundcloud-influenced production.” – SPIN

Nylo is a singer/songwriter with a sound that can be best described as “Hybrid R&B,” including elements of rhythm and blues, hip-hop, EDM and classic soul. Born and raised in Chicago, she started writing snippets in her notebooks and setting them to the music she created on the piano in the neighborhood church. As her musical journey brought her out to Los Angeles, Nylo caught the eyes and ears of a few key bloggers in 2012 when she released her five song EP Memories Speak. She has garnered comparisons to Aaliyah and Lauryn Hill, and was called music’s best-kept secret. Nylo, however, won’t be a secret much longer, as she counts stars such as Nas and Mac Miller as fans and supporters. Nas even called Nylo his “favorite new artist.” She currently lives in California where she is putting the final touches on her next projects: Indigo Summerwhich is slated for release on July 16th, and Indigo Rosewhich will drop in the fall.
