Behind the Music
A Musical Journey
EYA moved from her hometown of San Jose to LA to pursue her acting career. In 2012, she graduated from the famous Lee Strasberg Theater & Film Institute. EYA broke into the world of fashion in 2014 with Willow Models. She appeared in several successful ad campaigns and was chosen to model for multiple designers at LAFW.
EYA's music career blossomed unexpectedly when she met Taryll Jackson, from the famed Jackson family and musical group "3T," in post production on an indie movie she wrote and produced. Taryll gave EYA her first singing lesson. Over the last few years, EYA has been developing her sounds, working hard in the studio, and coming up with new original music. Not only has EYA been mentored by Taryll, but also Cory Rooney who developed artist such as JLo.
An awesome turn of events happened when EYA met Jay Phoenix on set of a TV pilot and ever since the two have been making music magic! Jay's exceptional talents in music theory, instrumentation, and production are complemented and given youthful expression by EYA's strong, rich, velvety voice.
