Introducing Eva Cassidy

The Legend of Eva Cassidy

Singer and guitarist, Eva Cassidy, languished in relative obscurity through her entire life. She spent her days working at a plant nursey and her nights performing in small clubs in the Washington DC area.  Refusing to have her musical style pigeon holed and commercialized she turned down several offers for recording contracts, including one from Blue Note.   

In 1996, Eva was diagnosed with advanced stages of cancer. She died several months later at the age of 33. 

Eva specialized in interpretations of other people's songs and a few years after her death a UK radio station began to play her version of Over the Rainbow. It became a national sensation and her albums have since sold several million copies in Europe. Her recording legacy consists mainly of live performances with a few collaborations and self produced studio sessions mixed in.

Chris Stapleton's new album

From A Room Volume 2

Wise and sensitive storyteller that he is, he knows that deprivation and loss are felt the most deeply when it's clear what's at stake. It's no wonder so many fans have come to count him as a musical hero. -- NPR  review

The Music of Damien Rice

"Irish songwriter Damien Rice is the closest thing that acoustic-wielding adult alternative will get to a wild card. His stunning debut, O, was a critical and commercial success with the help of tear-jerkers like “Volcano” and “The Blower’s Daughter,” and its 2006 follow-up 9—a lush, nuanced take on Rice’s biting songs."

Chris Stapleton

From a Room: Volume I

"He may appear to be a thick-bearded Seventies outlaw-country throwback, but make no mistake: Chris Stapleton is a soul singer, with a preternaturally creaky voice that can turn wizened or brawny."  -- Rolling Stone
