About the Fanclub

The Eva Cassidy phenomenon began too late for the woman herself to enjoy it, although whether she would have enjoyed international fame is another matter. What is beyond doubt is the power of the recordings she left behind to affect the listener. Eva’s singing brings both hope and comfort.

Biography Eva Cassidy

Eva Marie Cassidy (February 2, 1963 in Washington, DC – November 2, 1996 in Bowie, Maryland) was an American vocalist described by the British newspaper The Guardian as “one of the greatest voices of her generation.” She had a diverse repertoire of jazz, blues, folk, gospel and pop. Cassidy remained virtually unknown outside of her native Washington, DC, when she died of melanoma (which had spread to her bones) in 1996. Her posthumously released recordings have since sold in excess of 12 million copies, and in early 2001 the compilation album Songbird reached #1 on the UK album charts.
