Hi, I’m Deyla! she/her

This is my first 50/90. I’m from California. I am mostly a vocalist and a lyricist, just starting to dip my toes into recording. My equipment is currently my iPhone and an iPhone-friendly Shure MV88 microphone.

I’ve only written maybe a dozen full-length songs prior to this challenge, so I’m really excited to see what comes out of it. I’m writing this after posting my first two songs, both of which were my first songs written in minor keys.

Words and Melodies come to me fairly naturally once I figure out a chord progression/instrumental. Otherwise, I typically start with a melody and find the chords from there, so I’d love to collaborate with other writers who are more comfortable on their instruments.

Looking forward to meeting you all, hearing your creations and possibly working together!

Hi Deyla, I think I would alter a few things and get a better recording of this, but I would like to put an updated version in Bandcamp over the winter. I put my songs there for free downloads. Are you OK with that?


Hi Deyla, I will get something together this afternoon or tomorrow morning. I will post when I am done, so it looks like a new song. Otherwise it would stay in the 5 weeks ago page, and might not be listened to.


sent you an email.


I am happy that you liked it...Great job Deyla.
