In the Round with Koli, Samantha and Eva

Being a descendant of the Hupa, Yurok and Karuk tribes of Northern California and theatrical relatives on her Anglo-American side, Koli Kohler comes from a long line of storytellers. Koli’s warm personality shines through her songs as she takes us along her journey as a young woman who is “holding her own,” while traversing young adulthood across states and various countries. Koli creatively engages the listener by braiding together catchy tunes, intriguing metaphors, and unique timing. Blending her clear voice with the harmonious sounds of ukulele, guitar, and piano, Koli blurs across the lines of pop, country, and folk.

Samantha is an indie pop singer/songwriter and San Francisco native. She released her first EP, Wandering I, in 2017. Her soulful melodies convey the power of the female voice, and her lyrics tell stories about mental health and acceptance. Her most recent projects include songs for the Bushwick Bookclub, and writing the music for the musical Valley of the Dead (Cutting Ball Theater). She is currently working on developing her skills as a producer for a series of new singles. Her upcoming release will feature layered vocals and ambient synths which create an emotional soundscape.

Eva Snyder is a bi-coastal singer/songwriter. Originally from Western Mass, she taught herself how to play guitar and moved to California. Her pop-country sound is flirty, sassy, and never afraid to slap you in the face with some hard truth. Eva released her first EP, Balance, as her college thesis, and she is currently in the process of recording and releasing a second EP which will experiment with more pop sounds while celebrating country lyrics and stories.
