Eva Constance started singing at age about age 6 years old in the church choir. Gaining what she learned in the choir, she wrote her first song when she was 12 years old. She got into recording soon after that and finally found her passion for music. It wasn’t til 2018 that she had an idea for her sound. Late 2018 she released her first single, ‘Hold Me’ but decided she was not ready for the music industry because there were she things she wanted to refine and to learn so she stepped back. Eva is back and better than ever with her newest debut single “Selfish” which will be released worldwide on September 5th, 2020. She is currently getting ready to release more music this year with lots more to come.
Hello Eva Constance. I’d like to thank you for taking the time to converse with me on your journey and the next steps.
Thank you so much for having me. I appreciate it very much.
Q: How would you describe the music that you typically create?
Ans: I usually create songs that have a sexy, seductive, and chill vibe. I like to appeal to young adults but it can sink into teens, depending on the situation. I may be young, but I have been through so much that I have deep ideas that route from those deep, and dark experiences. I haven’t had the best past with people because I sometimes tend to get drawn to bad influencers and/or relationships. I choose to try and live each day as bright as I can though because that’s just my past and it does not control my present and future. At one time it did but I have overcome it and now I use it as a tool to speak truth into my music and I feel that most people will be able to relate.
Q: What is your creative process like?
Ans: My creative process has two diﬀerent routes. The first is I have a melody in my head and I seamlessly add lyrics to it inside my head and spill it onto paper. The second way is when I receive an instrumental beat that gives me certain vibes I just attach to and can’t disconnect from. It’s honestly a beautiful thing. My heart draws into it and lyrics just flow out of my hand onto paper. Once that is done, I usually start to practice singing it over and over again getting the voice to match the sound. I also think of harmonies that could be added as well. After that, it’s recording time. I take all of that and record it, multiple times. It’s never wrong to have multiple takes for the song to find the best part in each or in the whole song.
Q: How do you feel the Internet has impacted the music business?
Ans: I feel that the internet is one of the best tools in today’s music industry. It helps gear people to your music and story more than ever before. It reaches people you would have a hard time reaching before and it makes the world a little smaller and easier to connect with not just the music business but beyond that.
Q: Will you be gigging or touring?
Ans:I am slowly but surely going to be gigging and touring but at this moment, I am not trying to do that just yet. I would like to put out a few more songs and music videos so I have a variety of songs to choose from for diﬀerent vendors. I want people to see me as more than just a singer, an entertainer.
Q: Do you plan your music releases, or do you just finish a song and release it?
Ans: I always plan my music releases and sometimes it does not go into the plan. I do not have a team of people helping me accomplish my dreams at the moment, it is just me and honestly, I am proud that it is just me. I can prove to people that I am more than just the singing side of things, I also do the PR, release distribution, music video
planning, editing, writing, etc. The only thing I do not do is the mixing and mastering because I have a great engineer that handles it but I am right beside him helping and giving feedback on my music. Maybe at one point in the future, I’d love to have a team to help me achieve success but I do not mind do it on my own.
Q: Was anyone else involved in writing, recording, or producing the songs?
Ans: Yes, I have an engineer named Matt who helps me to produce and mix/master my singles. He is a talented and very dedicated person who loves what he does and I am so grateful that I met him. As for the recording and writing, I started out at a studio in South Florida called DogManic Recording Studios but later branched oﬀ into my own home studio set up. I still have connections there but I’ll only use it if I really need to or need a change for a bigger production. I’ll tell you it’s not cheap and if you are going to do that, make sure you follow through with everything you need because one wrong move and your quality go down the drain.
Q: How do you deal with writer’s block?
Ans: I do not have writer’s block often but when I do it frustrates me horribly. I try to write even when I have writer’s block to see if I can just break the barrier but most of the time I realize that I cannot so I just give up and give myself time to relax and collect my thoughts. I usually go back to it either later on or a few days after that and it works!
Q: Are you planning any videos for your music?
Ans: I am at the moment on the last day of filming my music video for my debut single “Selfish”, which was released on August 31, 2020, and made available everywhere September 5th, 2020.; I am super proud of the song and it seems to be getting popular with people as well. I love this song with all my heart and I’ve had this song for over a year before the release. I really do hope people continue to like it and get excited about more of my music because I have a lot of it getting ready to be released. I actually have a new single being released very soon called “All Mine” and it does have a similar vibe to “Selfish” but with a twist. I cannot wait for my music for “Selfish” to debut and my next single. I am so happy for the support I get, even when it’s not a lot because those are the building blocks for your career to take oﬀ. The fans who start out with you first are just as important as the ones who just learned about you so I try to just stay humble and be grateful for anything I get.
