About Thaylia

Singer/songwriter Thaylia (Thay-lee-a) is of Aboriginal and Greek heritage. Her Aboriginal mother originates from the Murri Tribe from far North Queensland and her Father from the Greek island of Kalymnos.

Thaylia has performed at some of Australia’s finest venues including Sydney Opera House, Sydney Conservatorium of Music and Happy Yess in Darwin. Thaylia was born in Darwin and raised in WA. She spent her childhood years in Kununurra, in the far north Kimberley of Western Australia, before moving to Perth when she was 12.

Growing up she never had any music lessons, and it wasn't until the age of 23 when she discovered her passion of music and picked up an instrument for the very first time.
