Biography

Los Angeles-based singer/songwriter Iyla blends R&B vocals and mellow production similar to contemporaries such as H.E.R. and Victoria Monet. While she got her start in the early 2010s as part of an R&B trio, she soon dipped into the electronic dance world as guest vocalist on a handful of songs, most notably 2013's hit "Walking on Air." Her official debut effort, War + Raindrops, was issued in late 2018 and featured the single "Juice." Originally performing as Bella Blue, Iyla was part of the R&B trio Fine Chynah from 2011 to 2012. As a solo artist, she soon transitioned to electronic dance anthems, appearing as a session vocalist before scoring her own guest credits on tracks with James Sky ("Catch the World"), Tony Igy ("Run Away"), m-flo ("Devotion," "Own the Sky"), and Anise.K ("Walking on Air"). The latter single, which also featured Snoop Dogg, became an international hit, topping the charts across Europe. Shifting back to R&B, she also guested on "The Way It Feels" with Ian Thomas. The languid, alternative mood of that song would inform her next stage as a solo artist. Rebranding herself Iyla Blue, she released "Go There" in 2016 and entered the studio to record her official debut, influenced by her longtime inspirations Patti LaBelle, Diana Ross, and Adele. War + Raindrops (3T Entertainment/Astra Velum/Empire) was issued in October 2018 and featured the singles "Shampoo" and "Juice." ~ Neil Z. Yeung
