Rising sophomore Eva Leach is a musical star, YouTube sensation and savvy student of the industry. “I’ve always been a musical person,” says the Honors College student. “My family encouraged me to sing at an early age.”
That only makes sense coming from such a musically gifted family – her mom sings and plays violin, her dad plays the standup bass and her brother, Nathan, is a talented singer and multi-instrumentalist.
For six years now, she and Nathan have posted videos on YouTube that feature them performing pop- and folk-song covers. One video titled “Hero (Family of the Year) – A cover by Nathan and Eva Leach” starts with Nathan singing and playing guitar. Leach joins him, and the two sing in tight unison. After playing a shaker, Leach suddenly throws it under her leg to Nathan and starts playing a harmonica. It’s a cute showcase of their talents and fun, creative sides.
