Maria Nayler (born 26 March 1972) is a British female singer. In the early 1990s, she was part of Ultraviolet, who released two singles, "Kites" (1990) and "I Wish That" (1991). In 1995, she appeared as featured vocalist on Sasha's trance track "Be As One". It received a release through Deconstruction Records in early 1996, peaking at number 17 in the UK Singles Chart.[1]

Later that same year, Nayler teamed up with Italian electronic dance musician Robert Miles, who applied her vocals to the international hit song "One and One", the third single culled from Miles's album Dreamland. "One and One" topped the charts in Italy and Belgium and peaked at #3 in the UK, Ireland, Sweden, and Norway.

In 1998, Nayler signed a solo recording contract with Deconstruction and released "Naked and Sacred", a cover version of a Chynna Phillips song. Featuring the B-side "The Other Side", produced by Sasha, as well as a speed garage remix from Tim Deluxe, "Naked and Sacred" reached #32 in the UK.[1] The double A-side "Love is the God"/"Will You Be With Me" was issued in August 1998 and peaked at #65.[1]

In 2000, Nayler returned with "Angry Skies", which was produced by Tilt. The track reached #42 on the UK Singles Chart.[1] The second 12" also featured the Sasha produced "She". In 2007, "Angry Skies" was re-released on Lost Language.

Nayler appeared on an episode of Never Mind the Buzzcocks as a mystery guest.

In 2009, Nayler returned by performing the vocals on the trance song "We Belong", composed by Ferry Corsten and featured on A State of Trance.
