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 artist. Today she releases her infectious new single "Is It Love" with PAPER Magazine.
"Is It Love" asks the question "is it love or lust?"
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 then managers held background vocal auditions at a Brooklyn photo studio, where Eva worked for Canadian fashion filmmaker, Gordon Von Steiner.
Following a successful audition, Eva has committed herself to music, touring the world with acclaimed artists such as Solange, Robyn, Charli XCX, Lykke Li and currently Blood Orange. Her vocals were recorded on several Blood Orange songs including "Sandra's Smile", featured as Pitchfork's "Best New Track" and "Charcoal Baby", of which the New York Times praised for Eva's "lush singing".
Chic pop musings on the taboos of love is a running theme for Eva. Her 2017 debut EP 'Evergreen' featured the single "Another Lover", an ode to polyamory that earned praise from The FADER for her "highly coveted vocals", i-D and Vogue. Another popular single "Touch Me", is an endlessly danceable exaltation of self-love infused with trance euphoria by PC Music producer Danny L Harle (Charlie XCX, Carly Rae Jepson).
After many years of touring, Eva has taken a break to focus on her producing and recording skills. In 2021, for the first time, Eva will be releasing songs written, produced, and recorded on her own. The result is a much more intimate sound that showcases her evolution as a musician and writer.
