Biography

Ewa was born on January 29th, 1983 in Poland. She has been singing since her early childhood. As a young child, she amazed everybody with her ability to mimic difficult melodies streaming from the radio. In high school, she performed in local clubs, pubs, coffee shops, schools, and at various events. Those gigs paid for her voice lessons and stage clothes. Even in between school and part-time jobs as a waitress, and later as a model – Ewa always made time for music. She even traded in golden prospects in the fashion industry so she could join a pop/rock band.

In June of 2005, Ewa graduated from college with B.A. in International Relations and soon after that she moved to Los Angeles, California. As a lead singer, thanks to her unusual style and voice, Ewa mesmerizes her audience each time she performs. Relaxed and charismatic onstage and off, Ewa brings charm with her wherever she goes. Her hard work has paid off, as she’s won over audiences, and begun attracting the attention of the music industry in both Europe and the U.S.

Besides singing Ewa also writes music and lyrics and collaborates with established songwriters. Her songs stand apart from past and current trends. They reflect both the essence of life and the great truths of existence. She lives for pop melodies and sharp hooks. With a strong, haunting voice that carries her songs, and guitar chops to boot, she is "a rising star.” In 2006 she released her debut album, “Hold On to Me.” Ewa's talent and her unique style, reminiscent of Eva Cassidy and Bonnie Raitt among others, have made her a true jewel of pop music. Her noble elegance and natural beauty contribute to her mysterious image.
