Ellayo is the project of New York City-based vocalist, musician and producer Natalia Schwien. She released the debut EP For Miriam which is out as self-release. Each piece was recorded live in sound-specific spaces throughout the US as a church in Connecticut, a barn in Pennsylvania, a cabin in Ojai, California.

The music draws inspiration from ancient hymns and classical orchestral pieces as well as modern instrumental music; with the exception of a binaural delta-brainwave on the final piece, there are no electronically created sounds throughout. Full streaming is available below.
