Quilla (Anna Luisa Daigneault) is a vocalist, songwriter and electronic music producer. Originally from Montreal, she lives in Greensboro, NC. Known within the electronic music community as a versatile vocalist, she has written songs for Tiesto, Heatbeat, Sultan + Shepard, Feenixpawl, and many others. She was a featured vocalist on hit club tracks released by Universal, Revealed Recordings, Armada, Vicious, Ministry of Sound and others.
As an electronic producer, her work is inspired by house music, world beat, downtempo and experimental sounds. Her first album Beautiful Hybrid (2014) was featured by iTunes in their ‘Ahead of the Curve’ playlist, and the album was remixed and released on vinyl by Visionquest Music. Her second album You Got It (2017) included tracks ranging from cathartic to contemplative. A reviewer from I Want EDM noted, “her ability to transcend genres and tie all the brilliant intricacies of her production together is majestic.” Her upcoming projects include an album of ambient music as well as a collection of lullabies.
«Kicking off with eerie drum-work, the listener is met with her spellbinding and ethereal voice – one that soothes the senses like silk would. Exciting more emotions in the listener, Quilla carries off the track well with her pitch perfect adeptness behind both, the microphone as well as the production desk.»

«This last year [Quilla] has been hard at work producing her new album ‘You Got It’, and it does not disappoint. The slick, varied productions alongside beautiful, poetic vocal forms a hybrid genre which Quilla has created. The influences of the producers she has worked with and her dance music background are evident, but her ability to transcend genres and tie all the brilliant intricacies of her production together is majestic.»
