Eva Cassidy

Born: 1963. Died: 1996. Lived in: United States

Eva Marie Cassidy was an American vocalist and guitarist known for her interpretations of jazz and blues. In 1992, she released her first album, The Other Side, a set of duets with go-go musician Chuck Brown, followed by the 1996 live solo album titled Live at Blues Alley. Although she had been honored by the Washington Area Music Association, she was virtually unknown outside her native Washington, DC. She died of melanoma in 1996.

Two years after her death, Cassidy's music was brought to the attention of British audiences, when her versions of "Fields of Gold" and "Over the Rainbow" were played by Mike Harding and Terry Wogan on BBC Radio 2. Following the overwhelming response, a camcorder recording of "Over the Rainbow", taken at Blues Alley in Washington by her friend Bryan McCulley, was shown on BBC Two's Top of the Pops 2. Shortly afterwards, the compilation album Songbird climbed to the top of the UK Albums Charts, almost three years after its initial release.

Eva Cassidy : Somewhere

Ten years after the release of Eva Cassidy's Songbird, this new collection brings together yet more magical moments from one of America's most lauded singer/songwriters. Embracing Cassidy's usual kaleidoscope of styles---from country and folk to Appalachian and Celtic---Somewhere is a set of covers that reminds us of the singer's consummate musicality and all-encompassing vocal skills.The overall mood fluctuates between hushed intimacy and summery exuberance. Special mention must be made of the final two songs: a gorgeous acoustic arrangement of Gershwin's "Summertime," and the soaring title track, "Somewhere," done in true Cassidy style. Titles: Coat of Many Colors * My Love Is Like a Red Red Rose * Ain't Doin' Too Bad * Chain of Fools * Won't Be Long * Walkin' After Midnight * Early One Morning * A Bold Young Farmer * If I Give My Heart * Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain * Summertime * Somewhere.
