Ayla Nereo Releases “Let It In”

AylaAyla Nereo has released an intriguing new track, “Let It In,” off her forthcoming album Hollow Bone. Although frequent concertgoers should recognize this tune from Nereo’s tour with her band Wildlight, the continually changing lyrics when performed live might make that a little tricky.
