Eva Cassidy Artist Snapshot:

Eva Cassidy was an American singer who mixed folk, pop, standards, and soul in a gentle yet affecting manner. Though she was initially known only around her Washington, D.C., home base, word of her talents began to grow--though unfortunately only after her tragically early death in 1996 from cancer at the age of 33. She gained a huge posthumous following in England, which eventually spread back to her own country. The only shame is that she wasn't around to enjoy it.

Product Notes

Songbird cherry-picks tracks from the three locally released albums of Eva Cassidy, whose hauntingly beautiful vocals went virtually unheard outside her native Washington, D.C., during her short 33 years with us. Lost to melanoma in 1996, Cassidy sang with an unaffected purity and an astonishing ability to make both classic and contemporary songs sound like they were written just for her. Sting''s "Fields of Gold" finally lives up to its title through the alchemy of Cassidy''s transcendent rendition, while other tracks on this anthology showcase her ease in the realms of pop (Christine McVie''s "Songbird"), soul ("People Get Ready"), gospel ("Wade on the Water"), and traditional standards ("Autumn Leaves" and "Over the Rainbow"). Framed by understated jazz and pop arrangements, Cassidy''s clear, soulful voice and exquisite phrasing make her that rarest of vocalists whose interpretations are a complement to any song. A fine introduction to a true talent. --Billy Grenier
