Eva Schubert is a singer and songwriter based in Vancouver, Canada. Inspired by jazz greats like Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, and Nina Simone, blues icons like Etta James, and — perhaps improbably — Leonard Cohen, she writes in a diverse range of styles. Her first album, “Songs for a Ladies’ Man”, is full of songs with a classic jazz appeal. The album represents a partnership with producer Paul Claxton, whom she credits with a significant degree of mind reading, and a great deal of creativity.
Her second album, “Borderless Sky”, is another original collection featuring songs with a solid jazz profile. The track “They Say” is influenced by Nat King Cole, and “Traces of You” has classic jazz trumpet. There is even a bossa nova track. Other songs branch outside of classic jazz into a more folk experience, inviting the listener into an evocative soundscape of acoustic guitar, cello, and mandolin.
