Eva Avila makes her Vancouver debut tomorrow at the PNE.





A far cry from the whirlwind three-week recording of her debut album, Canadian Idol-winner Eva Avila is enjoying the slower, but more challenging pace of her sophomore effort.





“It’s the beginning of my evolution, musically, as an artist,” said the 20-year-old who makes her Vancouver debut tomorrow with a performance at the Pacific National Exhibition.





“It’s a lot of pressure, the second album.”





The album, a follow up to her 2006 debut, Somewhere Else, is pencilled for a spring release.





She said the songs will be mostly English, but will include a few in French.





Working with professional song writers in Toronto, Avila hopes to have a few of her own tunes penned for the album.





“I’ve gained a lot of maturity and perspective and have evolved a lot in the past couple of years. I really feel that I need to express that in song.”





In March, Avila — who is nicknamed Eva Le Dragon, after a popular French-language children’s show — became the first Canadian face of Maybelline New York.





“A year ago, if someone had said that this would be happening … I would never have believed them.”
