DIY Spotlight: Eva

Eva is a self-styled DIY pop artist who grew up listening to her parents’ country and classic rock records…before she fell in love with Madonna, Christina Aguilera and Britney Spears.

Her first composition was a heartfelt ballad about her first boyfriend called “My Everything.” “Listening back, I feel, Wow, that’s embarrassing. It’s cute though.”

Nevertheless, important peeps took note. Eva worked with Jason “Poo Bear” Boyd, Scott Storch and Snoop Dogg. In 2011, she released her debut single, “Not My Daddy,” featuring rapper Gucci Mane. That led to invitations to support Nas and Alicia Keys.

She followed with “Body on Mine,” featuring rapper Tyga. It was a hit on SiriusXM radio.
In 2014, Eva issued “Trapped,” a song written by Poo Bear and produced by J.R. Rotem (Rihanna, Britney).

She performed at KIIS FM’s Jingle Ball and was the headliner at OC Gay Pride. In 2015, she embarked on Nick Cannon’s Celebrity High Magazine Tour, where she performed at California high schools, following in the footsteps of her idol Lady Gaga.

Eva reveals she was bullied in her teens and struggled to fit in. “Everyone’s childhood shapes them,” she reflects. “That’s why I love Lady Gaga and her message of inclusiveness.”

Eva declares, “Everybody needs that moment where they take a break from all the crap and have some fun. That’s where my music comes in: I want to spread the love.”
