Eva Cassidys seminal, UK No.1, 6x Platinum Award Winning album, Songbird, is a compilation album of songs by the late American singer Eva Cassidy, released in 1998, two years after her death in 1996.
Songbird is a specially-sequenced introduction to the music of Eva Cassidy, gathered from Live At Blues Alley, Eva By Heart, and The Other Side (duet with Chuck Brown). Songbird (certified Gold by the RIAA), runs the gamut from the pop cover of Stings Fields Of Gold to a jazz chanteuse rendition of the standard Autumn Leaves to the soulful R&B of Curtis Mayfields People Get Ready to her spine-tingling gospel delivery of Oh, Had I A Golden Thread to the breathtaking version of Somewhere Over The Rainbow.
It was in 2001 that music enthusiasts sat up and took notice of Cassidys compelling way with a song; that was the year that the Songbird compilation hit the top of the British album charts and captivated audiences the world over. Songbird has now been certified Platinum in both the U.S. and U.K.
"...the shimmering beauty of her crystal-clear voice, combined with her seemingly limitless range and imaginative phrasing, cuts through to both heart and soul. Whether she beckons a soothing timbre for seductively restrained passages or shakes the rafters by unleashing her formidable power and gorgeous falsetto, Cassidy's warblings always fuse her purity of tone with a purity of emotion and a palpable connection with the lyric." -Scott Taylor, allmusic.com
