Eva Kurowski (born 1965 in Oberhausen) is a German jazz musician and singer.
Kurowski's father, Walter, is a jazz musician and plays in many clubs in the Ruhr Valley, (K-14 in Oberhausen, Blue-Note in Eisenheim), and therefore his daughter was constantly exposed to jazz from an early age.
She currently tours the Ruhr area with her jazz band.
Her book "Avanti Popoloch: Eine sozialistische Kindheit im Ruhrgebiet" (ISBN 3938834331) was published in 2008.
Kurowski writes her own music and words, based in a classical jazz sound. Her female perspective in her songs is influenced by daily life in the Ruhr Valley, and alternates between pop, children's songs and jazz.
