About Me

Naila Alvarez is a jazz guitarist who got her start playing in churches in Fayetteville, NC. She began playing guitar at the age 7, and has not put it down since. Her first consistent gig was being a part of a worship team at a church in Fayetteville, and she was there for seven years, from the age of 11 to 18. She also led a youth band for four years. During this time she recorded her first single on both bass and guitar, and had the opportunity to record on multiple albums.

Two years ago Naila joined a touring worship team, Markt Music, and has since traveled up and down the east coast to places such as: Maryland, South Carolina, and Boston. In 2019 she will start on her international tour.

Currently, she is studying Music Business at Berklee Online College of Music and Spanish with a minor in Marketing at Fayetteville State University and plans to graduate in 2021. Afterwards, Naila plans to study towards her Master's in Music Business and Global Entertainment. She wants to open her own record label that focuses on supporting women from nonsupporting backgrounds.
