In 2006, Eva decided to leave her musical friends after 7 years of playing each folk festival in Europe. She wanted to make pop music instead of singing traditional songs, so she started her own band. With this band, she toured Belgium, the Netherlands and South Africa. She recorded 4 CDs in her own name: “De Jager” (The Hunter), “Over en Weer” (Back en Forth), "Mijn huis" (My House) and "Viert" (Celibrate). “The Hunter” sold over 30,000 albums in 2 years time. Her newest album, called "Chanticleer", is entirely in English and is produced by Peter Case. It was recorded at the Carriage House in Los Angeles.
