Saturdays at Seven
An Interview with Eva Rose
We got to ask singer/songwriter Eva Rose some questions about her new EP 'Out of Lives' and it went a little something like this...
How did you get your start in music?
I had been taking piano and guitar lessons since I was a kid, but I started writing my own music when I was 15 years old. I wrote about 100 terrible songs before I ever recorded them. In more recent years I’ve been mainly a songwriter, writing with other artists in LA and NY and a year ago I started taking my own project more seriously!
What does music mean to you?
For me, music is a form of escapism and healing. Music has always meant so much to me because a good song can sometimes put into words something so universal yet difficult to articulate.
Tell us the story behind your song?
I wrote my most recent single, “Waste Your Time” with Dominic Florio and Dezi, who are good friends and collaborators of mine. We wrote the song way before I ever thought there was going to be an EP. The song is about confusing feelings of missing someone with nostalgia.
What’s your favorite thing to do on a Saturday
If it’s a nice day out I like to go for a walk or see friends in the park! A lot of times though I’m cooped up catching up on emails and working on music. Since venues have opened up, I’m often spending Saturday nights seeing shows.
What artists influence your sound?
My first music love was Avril Lavigne, so she’s always been an influence for me. I also really love Paramore.
What’s your dream superpower?
The ability to teleport anywhere would instantly make my life easier.
What’s up next for you?
Since my EP just came out, I’m hoping to do more live shows. I’m continuing to work on new music so people will probably hear new work from me in the near future.
