Eva Folch was born in Barcelona where she studied music, voice and piano, in the conservatory. In 2003 she moves to Den Haag to study at the Royal Conservatory with Rachel Gould, Anette von Eichel, John Roucco, Eric Vloeimans, Frits Landersberger, Sanna van Vliet… and attended workshops with Barry Harris, Mark Murphy, Judy Niemack, Debora Brown, Meredith d´Ambrosio, Jeanne Lee… She finished her Bachelor on September 2007. On May 2009 she also finished a Master Program in the same school.

During the years in Den Haag she performs in several Clubs and Sessions as well as in Spain, Holland and around Europe, taking part in may many bands and projects. In October 2006 she reached to the semifinals on Brussel´s jazz singers competition. With a great feedback from the audience.

At the moment she leads the band “Matisos” since 2007. In february 2010 the band reaches the finals on Den Haag´s Mozaique Festival, broadcasted live in Television. The Band released their first Cd, “Impressions on Frederic Mompou”,  in December 2010.

Since very early in her career she´s always been interested in alternative ways of experiencing the sound and she´s been always eager to find a freer and natural way to use her voice, that allows her to experience music at its full capacity. That´s why she complemented her studies with great teacher Ingrid Voermans (Lichtenberger Technique), and learning Indian Music (Drhupad Style) with Marianne Svasek in Rotterdam. In March 2011 she decides to go deep into Dhrupad, and goes to India to study with Uday Bhawalkar.
