Up-and-coming songstress QUEEVA sets free her debut album How Do You Know. The budding songwriter co-wrote every track on the album with mentor and hit songwriter Jamie O’Neal, who is also credited as the producer of the album. To listen to the new album on YouTubeSpotify or Apple Music.

Empowerment is a running theme on the 9-track release, filled with words of wisdom far beyond the youngster’s tender age of 15. “We spend so much time trying to be something we are not. I wanted to write songs that inspire my generation to not be a follower and let their true colors show,” QUEEVA stated. Encouraging words of self-love and confidence flow out of songs like “Stand Out” and “Who You Really Are,” while the title track, “How Do You Know,” captures the feeling of young love and the judgments, trials, and tribulations that go along with falling in love at a young age. Captivating the attention of all age groups, QUEEVA’s music allows young audiences to strongly relate while older audiences fondly reminisce of their first love.  

Starting with a prominent country fiddle and carried out with subtle underlying Celtic backdrop throughout, “Going Back” acts as an ode to her mother’s homeland of Galway, Ireland, while the whimsical track “Young, Wild and Free” reminisces about simpler days on the emerald isle, “Ireland is my happy place where I’m surrounded by family and music.” 

Aside from having the direction and support from chart-topping songwriter and powerhouse vocalist, Jamie O’Neal, the promising songstress teamed up with a long list of accomplished writers including Rob Crosby (Luke Combs, Eric Paslay, Trace Adkins), Stephanie Bentley (Martina McBride, Gloriana) and Lisa Drew (Love and Theft, Martina McBride). 

Following the CMT.com world premiere of her music video for “How Do You Know,” the rising singer-songwriter continues to garner a list of accolades, having appeared on Nickelodeon’s Fresh Faces, capturing over one million streams on Spotify and YouTube, and landing on multiple Spotify playlists including Fresh Finds: CountryWild Country and Pop-Co, while also reaching overseas audiences appearing on Spotify’s In Viaggio playlist (Italian for “In Travel”). 

Born in Chicago, IL, QUEEVA was raised with five siblings in a creative Irish clan speaking both Gaelic and English and dividing her time between the US and Ireland. In fact, her name, sometimes spelled Caoimhe, means, “gentle,” “beautiful” or “precious” in that language.  Early on, QUEEVA gravitated to Country music’s greatest storyteller-artists who were skilled in illumining their everyday experiences in a song. She then went on to compete in talent contests all over. QUEEVA started to earn a name for herself at a very early age when she landed national TV spots, including an acting role in an episode of Chicago Fire, a role in a Build-a-Bear commercial, among others.  By age nine, she caught the attention of Jamie O’Neal and under O’Neal’s guidance, QUEEVA found her unique, fresh style as a songwriter and artist, which is reflected in her songs.
