Imagine being thirty years old and finding a malignant melanoma on your back.  Now, imagine that you are also an extraordinary musical and visual artist, that your career has just begun to take off and the melanoma is found to have spread throughout your body.  At the age of 33 the melanoma has taken your life, but your music has stretched its wings from the shores of Washington DC to the hearts and souls of the British people.  You are gone, but your music has just begun to take off.  

Today we'll have a conversation about the life of Eva Cassidy--the incredible singer and artist who was taken from this world too soon.  Her music took Britain by storm, posthumously, and has now reached the world.  Her bluesy, soulful voice demands our attention--E. L. James wove her into the 50 Shades of Grey trilogy, Paul McCartney & Eric Clapton became fans, and Michelle Kwan skated to her music in the Olympics, but who was this wonderful soul?  What was her life like and what was most important to her?  We are honored to have letters from her family which we'll read on the show.  http://www.evacassidy.com

Also on the show, Seattle singer/songwriter, Kim Archer, another great voice you won't want to miss.  Known for her raw, powerhouse performances and personable interaction with her audiences, Archer has attracted a large and loyal following of fans in the Pacific Northwest and across the country. 

Kim Archer’s music follows in the footsteps of great female singer/songwriters like Joan Armatrading, Melissa Ethridge and Bonnie Raitt.  http://www.kimarcherband.com
