Sabine Mayer aka KEIYLA is an Austrian-born singer, songwriter, actress and dancer based in Berlin.
At age 13, this talented young artist who grew up in a small town near Vienna established herself singing with local artists and DJs, and in commercials for TV and radio.
Following a long and successful career as a leading actress and vocalist in various formats and styles, Sabine knew it was time to follow her lifelong dream of creating her own music.
In 2020, when the global pandemic all but shut down the music, theatre and film industries, Sabine wasted no time in cementing her independence by learning how to record and produce her own material.
With a sizeable portfolio of original compositions on hand, and with her friend Jochen Ille – a musician and producer – on board for the ride, the dynamic duo (ILLMAYER) began their musical journey together and KEIYLA was born!
In 2021, they joined forces with Cornelius Kuron, an established producer and songwriter. Bringing his own unique talents to the table, this partnership continues to establish and amplify the influences of pop, disco and EDM in the ongoing, musical evolution that is KEIYLA.
