DYI Spotlight: Eva

Eva came out of nowhere and ended up with a Top 10 Billboard single in the U.K.  Now, the question is: How to transfer fame from the U.K to the U.S.? To do so, she employs some interesting strategies and a determined DIY ethic.

Eva spent her early years in Lincoln, NE, before her family moved to Northern California where she fell in love with female artists such as Madonna, Christina Aguilera and Britney Spears. 

“I started recording some of my own songs and covers––I was just messing around,” she recalls. Nevertheless, people took note, and she began working with Jason “Poo Bear” Boyd, producer Scott Storch and Snoop Dogg. 

In 2011, Eva released her debut single, “Not My Daddy,” featuring rapper Gucci Mane. That proved to be a calling card, leading to invitations to support rapper, Nas, as well as Grammy-winning songsmith Alicia Keys.

She followed with “Body On Mine,” featuring rapper Tyga. It was a hit on SiriusXM radio. “They played it all the time,” Eva enthuses. “That was surreal.”

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

Now Eva has recorded a slew of new material. “I want to spread joy in this world,” declares the California girl. “Everybody needs that moment where you take a break from all the crap and have some fun. But I don’t want to be portrayed as just another blonde party girl. That’s not me… beneath the surface, I’m very real.”
