Sara Ayers is an ambient music artist who uses her voice as a sound source. The Chemical Brothers used samples of Ayers' "Everyday We Die a Little" on their song "Come Inside" from their album Push the Button. VH1 used samples of "Angel #3" for the soundtrack of Behind the Music: Britney Spears. And the Russian electronic trio Figura constructed an entire album, The Sara Ayers Remixes, around her vocals.
