A FORMER music student at Stratford College has hit the ultimate career high note.
Eva Gadd, who studied music at the college from 2016 to 2018, has just been signed by record label Blue Adventure Records, ran by Grammy award winning producers NK-OK and Mr DM.
Eva always enjoyed singing but didn’t decide on it as a career until she started at college.
She said: “I did some singing at school and was in the Warwickshire County Girls Choir but it wasn’t until I left school and started college that I decided it was the road I wanted to go down.
“People recommend the college as well as studying in Stratford as it is known for its performing arts and I loved the vibe of the place.”
Eva had a fantastic time at college with her favourite memory being Musicals Rock, the big Musical Extravaganza at the end of each academic year. She also credits her tutor, Rob Hague, for helping her during her learning.
She continued: “I do want to say Rob my lecturer did really influence me in the jazz side of doing music and I wouldn’t be as interested in performing or as able to have the confidence if it wasn’t for him.”
Following college, Eva attended Falmouth University to study Popular Music and in 2020 started working with Music Manager Nick Faber. Nick contacted Eva to say that Blue Lab Beats had heard some of her music and wanted her to try singing on some of their demos.
Blue Lab Beats loved what Eva had done and invited her to their studio to lay down the track she had worked on. This led to her revisiting the studio in February to work on a couple of more tracks.
The following month Eva head that Blu Lab Beats was going to become an official record label known as Blue Adventure Records and wanted Eva to be signed to it and release the tracks they had worked on.
And her new single has just been released. Her first track, Breathing, is available on all platforms to download.
