Great news. Members of this group have long talked about the
possibilities of bumper stickers for Eva Cassidy. At last we have
one available. Go to Laura's "what's new" page - (where else would
you find the latest news on Eva?) and follow the link.
I ordered the bumper sticker and notecards. I will display the
sticker and a xerox transfer of the HoneyJar Girl (aka - Girl with
the Bumblebee) on the back window of my car. Now that gas prices
have made some people slow down (below the usual 90mph in Atlanta
traffic!) the timing of the bumper sticker is perfect!
Better yet - at only $5 you get several stickers - so give one to
the next person you share Eva's music with. The recent article in
the New York Times sited the internet and word of mouth as two
significant reasons Eva's popularity has grown. Five dollars is a
bargin to become part of Eva's public relations push. I can't think
of another artist who currently has sticks I've seen. What are we
Thanks to all for recent posts - Especially to Greg and Kimberly for
their notes to the radio media.
What an exciting time for Eva. Its a great time to be a fan. As I
continue to loan out her music I encounter more people who are
already familiar with her music. Simply amazing for someone without
any mainstream readio airplay in the US. SO - order a bumpersticker
today - bring another fan onboard - its the least we can do for
someone who wondered....Why would anyone want to buy her music?
Eva - you really are terrific! What a pleasure it is to watch as
people read the stickers on my car.

Sep 9 2005 Chester Chronicle THE MAGIC and tragedy of Eva Cassidy comes to Crewe with the musical play Over the Rainbow. As director Stephen LeatherlandMessage 1 of 2 , Sep 11, 2005View SourceSep 9 2005
THE MAGIC and tragedy of Eva Cassidy comes to Crewe
with the musical play Over the Rainbow.
As director Stephen Leatherland explains, the task of
dramatising Eva Cassidy's short life presented a real
'Eva's life was as much about her personal values as
her music,' he said.
'She was not driven by fame and did not really have a
recording career. But she was the start of a
revolution in music, opening the door to artists like
Katie Melua and Norah Jones,' said Stephen.
'Her success did not come easily and her talent was
not fully recognised until after her death,' he added.
'The biographical detail needed sensitive and tactful
handling and the whole project took four years to come
into being, from first idea to first performance.'
Eva's developing musical and artistic talents and
early influences shaped her short life.
The story travels through early successes and
disappointments, family relationships and recording
career highs and lows.
The show follows Eva's life from childhood to her
tragic death from cancer at the age of just 33. Over
25 of her tracks are woven in to the drama including
the title song, Over the Rainbow as well as Songbird,
Fields of Gold and many others.
Following her death in November 1996, the album
Song-bird was released. It soon caught the attention
of Radio 2 producer Paul Walters and became an instant
hit with listeners to Terry Wogan's breakfast show.
Eva Cassidy is now the only artist ever to have had
three consecutive number one albums, posthumously.
Over the Rainbow is appearing at Crewe Lyceum on the
16th & 17th September 2005 @ 8pm.
