Eva Cassidy

Moving on from conspiracy theories - bear with me, layan the download time and listen to this cover. I heard her on the radio on one of those quite Sunday nights at home and it was perfect. She died at 33 of melanoma, undiscovered by all except her hometown. Posthumously her albums have sold over 4 million copies.Such is life eh?

Not too bad. Not a top-notch live performer but can lah. Maybe she sounds better when its from a remastered source.

Kinds of remind me of Sara Vaughn, but of course Ms Vaughn is in a league waaaaaaaaay up there....

Eva is much better singing 'Over The Rainbow'. Wow I might jut have to pick up her CD. I'm a sucker for songs like these...

ya ler dude, course sounds much better after production.

was just comparing if we put her next to jamie callum or michael bubble live...

But all her songs are very melancholy. So if you listen to the entire CD you might end up falling asleep or getting clinically depressed!
