Neyla Pekarek began playing cello at age 9 in her native city of Denver, Colorado. She studied Musical Theatre and earned a degree in Music Education at the University of Northern Colorado in Greeley, CO. Back in Denver while searching for a teaching position, she answered a Craigslist ad for a local folk band needing a cello player. This band was The Lumineers, and she soon became a core member of the group, playing on their GRAMMY-nominated self-titled debut and follow-up album and performing on every continent (except Antarctica!). Neyla is a member of Sweet Adelines International, a women’s barbershop quartet organization, and she won the 2009 Rising Star championship with her quartet, Vogue. When not making music, Neyla enjoys collecting rubber stamps, true crime TV, and spending time with her pet bunny rabbit, Barbara. She was recently commissioned by the Denver Center for Performing Arts to develop a musical about the life of Colorado Pioneer, Rattlesnake Kate.
