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 then 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, touring with acclaimed artists such as Solange, Robyn, Charli XCX, Lykke Li and currently Blood Orange. Eva has worked on recordings with Devonte Hynes, How To Dress Well, Autre Ne Veut and Dubbel Dutch. Her vocals were recorded on the Blood Orange singles, “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. Her most recent single “Touch Me,” is an endlessly danceable exaltation of self-love infused with trance euphoria by PC Music producer Danny L Harle (Charli XCX, Carly Rae Jepsen).
