Nehal is an Egyptian-born singer and songwriter raised in France, and currently based in the San Francisco Bay Area. She fell in love with piano at the age of 6, and knew very early on that music just had to be part of her life. She started writing her own songs in her teenage years, and her passion for music composition and improvisation has never ceased to evolve since then.
She mainly sings in English, but has written a few songs in French, and frequently improvises in French on the microphone. Her worldly style is quite unique, and is largely inspired by her multicultural background. Performing for her friends, family or for just about anyone interested in taking a listen, is what drives her to strive to keep growing as a musician and as a human being. Nehal often collaborates with other artists, and truly appreciates meeting other musicians, and sharing her passion and thoughts with music lovers.
In July 2010, Nehal formed a band with Devin Moreno (Guitar), Josh Gardner (Drums), and Aaron Marquez (Bass). The band is named "Sweet HayaH". "HayaH" means life in Arabic; this name is meant to represent the band members' love for life and willingness to make each day count. www.reverbnation.com/sweethayah
