Tatiana Eva-Marie was born in a musical family to film composer Louis Crelier and solo violinist Anca Maria. She grew up surrounded by classical music on one side and jazz and hippie/rock music on the other. Tatiana Eva-Marie started her career as a singer at age 4 when she recorded a duo album with famous children’s performer Henri Dès. Two years later, she recorded her first solo album and performed in her first professional theatre play. She fell in love with the stage and has been performing ever since.
During her childhood, Tatiana Eva-Marie performed regularly in various stage productions and sang as guest star in her father’s band The Cotton Club Jazz Orchestra for the closing ceremony of the Vevey Comedy Film Festival. At age 12, she started her professional training at the Theatre Populaire Romand acting school in Switzerland, and then a few years later, at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York City.
Tatiana Eva-Marie attended a special high school for young professional artists and graduated early. She then moved to Paris, where she studied medieval poetry at the Sorbonne University during the day, and performed as a Gypsy singer at night in cabarets across the city, barefoot on tables with the Eastern mafia drinking vodka out of her shoes.
She performed as a singer and actress in some of the most renowned theaters in France, including the Comedie Francaise and the Theatre du Rond Point. Tatiana Eva-Marie wrote and directed two musical theater plays, Rhapsodia and The Magic Violin, which had a lot of success at the Avignon Theater Festival.
Tatiana Eva-Marie now lives in New York City, where she is continuing her artistic career. She is the lead singer of Avalon Jazz Band and collaborates with many talented artists on film, music and theater projects.
