New York City's EVA has just dropped her debut EP "Evergreen". After years of touring as part of the backing band for acts such as Solange, Blood Orange, Charli XCX and Lykke Li, EVA's solo effort is a vibrant, playful collection of pop songs that narrate on the many facets of modern love. "Evergreen" came together over the last year while on tour with Blood Orange, written and produced in collaboration with Eric Cross.
Eva Tolkin is a singer-songwriter from Toronto, Canada. She resides in New York City where her reputation as a highly sought after vocalist begets her burgeoning career as a solo pop artist.
Eva's music career got a jump start following a serendipitous encounter with the alternative fashion and pop music icon, Solange Knowles. Solange noticed Eva when her managers held background vocal auditions at a Brooklyn photo studio, where Eva worked for the acclaimed Canadian fashion filmmaker, Gordon Von Steiner.
Following a successful audition, Eva has committed herself to music. She has toured South America, Australia, Europe, Asia and North America with acclaimed artists such as Solange, Blood Orange, Charli XCX and Lykke Li, performing alongside Beyonce, Carly Rae Jepsen, Nelly Furtado, Marc Ronson, Rostam Batmanglij (of Vampire Weekend), Sky Ferreira, Connan Mockasin, and Empress Of.
She has worked on recordings with Devonte Hynes (of Blood Orange), How To Dress Well, Autre Ne Veut and Dubbel Dutch. Her vocals were recorded on the Blood Orange single, "Sandra's Smile," featured as Pitchfork's "Best New Track." Eva's first solo effort will be released December 1, 2017. Influenced by contemporary pop and dance music, her sound is vibrant, playful, energetic and approachable in nature.
When she isn't performing or recording, Eva employes her acumen for style to music supervise fashion campaigns and editorials. Her clients include Vogue Magazine, Vogue Italia, Zara, Louis Vuitton, Miu Miu, Vera Wang, Ralph Lauren, Derek Lam, Moschino and Tommy Hilfiger.
