British singer and songwriter Gabriela Eva grew up, in the historic market town of Colchester in Essex, raised on the sounds of Alanis Morissette, Nina Simone and Portishead. Inspired by strong female singers and her mother to freely express herself creatively, Gabriela Eva felt empowered to teach herself to play guitar and explore her own music. This can be heard through her borderless songwriting, a hybrid mix of pop, alternative soul, nu-jazz and funk…as it rings through her current singles HEY!
HEY! is the result of her collaboration with record producer Joe Dworniak, released by Riverfish Records on September 13th with an alternative mix on 11th October. These singles follow her (self released) 2018 debut EP ‘Rise Up’ and standout single ‘Sailing Over The City’ which saw spins on BBC 6Music by Giles Peterson, BBC Introducing and a Live session on BBC London with Robert Elms.

Gabriela Eva started her music career playing gigs throughout London and has performed internationally from Shanghai, Central America, Asia and Europe. 2019 highlights include performing at a variety of stages for UK festivals including ‘Greenpeace’ at Glastonbury and ‘Sunday Papers Live’ at Wilderness for Sofar Sounds.
