About

“Music is my greatest passion and has always had the biggest place in my soul. As I have been going through my life, I’ve nourished my emotions with various styles of music, regardless of national borders. I have been inspired, amazed by each of them. Now it is time for me to sing.” Olcay Bayır

I’m a singer and songwriter originally from Anatolia Turkey, now a Londoner. My first album ‘Neva’ consisted of traditional songs. Now I want to record an album with my own songs. Some of them have been in my heart for many years. Please go to my Project page to support.

“a woman whose voice is extraordinary in range and emotional power” Shepherd Express Milwaukee USA

“Sometimes you hear a debut album and get completely blown away by its quality and feel. Olcay Bayır’s Neva is such an album… Olcay renders each song with a natural ease, elegance and mastery as if she has been a recording artist all her life” Al-Arte Magazine Belgium

“the last track redefines the word sublime and I cannot imagine life without the sheer pleasure of hearing it again. A truly astounding début from someone who deserves to be very widely heard.” Fatea Magazine UK

“Olcay Bayir is an impressive newcomer to London’s vibrant global music scene. Born in the Kurdish region of southern Turkey, she moved to the UK to study opera and classical singing… This is an elegant and often gently exquisite set.” The Guardian Newspaper UK
