Eva Katzler makes an angelic debut single
SIR PAUL McCartney said her music was beautiful, and Elvis Costello described it as gorgeous. And now, singer-songwriter Eva Katzler is giving the rest of us the chance to listen, with the release of her debut single, Angel.
Miss Katzler, 29, says she has been singing since she can remember. “It’s what I do and what I have always done,” she tells People. “And I feel so very fortunate that it is something I can do professionally.” She adds: “I feel like I have been on a journey.”
Highlights along the way have included supporting Jamie Cullum on tour, and meeting Sir Paul McCartney at a music workshop in Liverpool. She describes herself as a singer-songwriter with jazz, folk and pop inspirations. Present influences include Swedish artist Stina Nordenstam. Angel (Dekkor Records) is based on the idea that there is always someone watching over you.
Miss Katzler says she has been overwhelmed by the support she has received from the Jewish community. “I am proud of my heritage.”
An advocate of organic growth, she says: “If you take a short cut in life, you will find yourself in too deep before you know it.”
Her next milestone is the release of her album, Corners, due out in February 2008.
She graduated from the Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts and now lives in Notting Hill, West London.
