Eva K. Anderson has a special passion: She collects stories. She stretches her sensors into the universe, turns the frequency wheels and listens to the cosmic noise, until something suddenly catches her attention. In this moment the ears and the heart are convinced that this is the next story waiting to be told. Eva hovers over each of these tales like a colorful butterfly and whispers: "Tell me, tell me!". And then the butterfly tickles Eva's vocal chords and she starts to sing the tale coming from a world of freedom, security and love. Stories about the power of thought, the fulfillment of heart's desires. Pop songs that tell of paradise and elves and fairies. Pop songs that create a world that is special to Eva.
Eva K. Anderson celebrated her biggest success as the songwriter of the no. 1 hit "Ich Lebe", sung by Christina Stürmer, and for which she received numerous gold and platinum awards in Austria and Germany.
