Eva Simons :: Number One with a Mohawk
In a little over a 3-year period, Dutch-born Eva Simons has elevated her status in the music industry from a virtual unknown to a vocalist being sought by major players in the recording industry. Eva (pronounced A-va) has propelled her career with international hits such as "Silly Boy," "Take Over Control" and the latest duet with will.i.am, "This Is Love," and her U.S. Dance #1 "I Don't Like You."
With acclaimed music videos and great live performance reviews under her belt, Eva is about to embark on her biggest tour to date in the U.S. as a part of the Identity Festival Tour roster this summer.
While packing in her home in Amsterdam, I caught up with the new singing warrior, as she calls herself, and dug a little deeper into what makes this seemingly shy and calm beauty on the outside such a feisty warrior ready to battle the music charts and all of what the Universe has waiting for her.
As an actress, BeBe was introduced to film with a lead role in the independent film "Under One Sun" with her character dealing with religious, racial and gender issues. Additionally, she appeared in the campy musical "Devious, Inc" (Australian Film Festival, San Francisco Short Film Fest) also adding additional vocals to the musical soundtrack. Both of these performances led to her selection for a lead role in Aisha Media’s next short film series, "Con-tin.u.um" to be released in 2012.
