Eva Marie Cassidy was an American vocalist known for her interpretations of jazz, blues, folk, gospel, country and
pop classics. She released her first album The Other Side, a duet album with go-go musician Chuck Brown in
1992 followed by a live solo album, Live at Blues Alley in 1996.
Cassidy remained virtually unknown outside of her native Washington, DC, when she died of melanoma in 1996.
Four years later, Cassidy's music was brought to the attention of UK audiences when her versions of
Over the Rainbow and Fields of Gold were played on BBC Radio 2.
Following the overwhelming response, a camcorder recording of Over the Rainbow taken at the Blues
Alley recording, was shown on BBC Two's Top of the Pops 2.
Shortly after, the compilation album Songbird climbed to the top of the UK Albums Charts,
almost three years after its initial release. As of 2003, her posthumously released recordings, including three
UK #1's, had sold around six million copies.
