Eva María Amaral Lallana (Zaragoza, Aragon, Spain 4 August 1972) is a Spanish singer-songwriter, and a member of the group Amaral with Juan Aguirre.[1]

She studied sculpture studies at the Art School of Zaragoza. During this time, she was a member of the band Bandera Blanca, where she was the drummer. In 1993, she met the guitarist Juan Aguirre, who was a member of the band Días De Vino Y Rosas. Together, they created the band Amaral. They moved to Madrid and later signed a contract with Virgin Records.

They have recorded six successful studio albums and have performed as tour support for Lenny Kravitz‘s Spanish concerts. Their song Rosa de la Paz was included in a record to support Prestige boat victims, also performing at the Nunca Máis demonstration in Madrid. Moby performs along with Eva Amaral on the song “Escapar”, the Spanish version of the Amaral song “Slipping Away”. Beto Cuevas, front man with the Chilean band “La Ley” joins Amaral on their song “Te Necesito”. Pajaros En La Cabeza is their most famous album.

. . . Eva Amaral . . .

Her father, Isidoro Amaral, was born in Cáceres, Spain.[2] He was the conductor of a music band, even though he did not like music.[3] He died in 1998. Her mother, Carmen Lallana (1943–2007) died in Zaragoza in 2007. At the beginning, they did not like that their daughter worked as a musician, but they accepted it and ended up loving it.[4] She has an older sister, who “was the one that introduced me to the Beatles’ and Simon and Garfunkel’s music“.[5]

Even though some people believe that she was born in 1973,[6][7][8][9] she confirmed that she turned 40 in 2012. “I just turned 40 and I feel much more secure and stronger than 20 years ago”.

She claims that she had a joyful childhood and that she never liked to play with dolls. Instead, she would play music with her cousin. She declares that she is shy and that as a teenager, she felt like a weirdo and had many insecurities.[10][11] At a very young age, she started to play the drums in a self-taught way and she did not think she could sing until she started to do it and realized that it was a much more powerful way to communicate than the drums.[12]

She studied in Zaragoza at the school “Romareda”.[13] Afterwards, she studied volume techniques in the art school of Zaragoza. Meanwhile, she also worked as a bartender in “Azul Rock Café”. She began to study lyrical singing when she realized that she wanted to become a singer. First, she took lessons in a civic center, but the teacher was fascinated by her voice and she sent her to her master. “Her lessons were very expensive and I did not have much money…“. She was asked to audition and the master admitted her with a discount. Eva and Juan met in 1992 at the back of a bar in Zaragoza. At that time, she played the drums in a local punk-rock band called “Bandera Blanca” and was also the leader single of another band called “Lluvia Ácida”. From the beginning, there was love, friendship and music between the two of them. They went through all the bars performing. They were together for five years before it all started. After that, they began to do some sporadic trips to Madrid and then they started to stay there a little longer, sleeping at friends’ places, working in the catering industry and much more while they performed in “Libertad 8”, “San Mateo 6”, “El Rincón del Arte Nuevo” and “La Boca del Lobo”. One day, Jesús Ordovás invited them to Radio 3 and sometime later, a guy from the Virgin company attended one of their concerts and decided to work with them. Then, someday in 1997, they made the decision of staying in Madrid.
