Builders of the Dawn is a project first and foremost of cooperation, and the music in our interviews and podcasts is no exception. Without fail, every clip of music comes from a local artist, perhaps a new friend made on the journey, or a small-time band from the shores of the Salish Sea. This music, the enchanting melodies of Ayla Nereo, the sensuous guitar of Stephen Eberle, and the rustic vocals of Camp Wisdom, are the songs of the story. We invite you to listen to these talented local artists:
Ayla Nereo: http://aylanereo.com/
“Can you fall in love with a sound? Can love itself be expressed in sound? Because if so, this is surely that sound…” ~ Collapse Board
Ayla Nereo’s voice hits straight to the heart. With an array of loop-pedals by her side, she layers vocal melodies into majestic, sweeping harmonies and weaves magical threads of guitar, kalimba, piano, and percussion into each live performance. Her lucid storytelling and lyrical imagery are water for the thirsty soul; sounds embodying the many folds of our own selves. Ayla’s music is both timeless and modern; circle songs and roots music meet folktronica. Crafting an immersive soundscape we can rest in, her gentle intention guides us into a more open and receptive state. Each performance is a journey: an inspired, wondrous experience that holds you by the heart and doesn’t let go.
