By Johan Bakker

A new edition of Behind the Rainbow, Johan Bakker’s biography on musician Eva Cassidy. Cassidy's story is one of the most compelling and poignant in recent music history. In this thoughtful and probing study Bakker re-evaluates her career and the fame that came only after her death at the tender age of 33.

Cassidy performed largely in and around Washington D.C.. Iceland was the only place she ever played in Europe, yet her jazzy folk pop would, after her death, make her a star both there and in her homeland. Since her passing she has sold more than ten million records.

Bakker has interviewed Cassidy's friends, colleagues, and family, and by tracing her formative experiences, outlook, and eventual disillusionment with the music business, has crafted a detailed and considered account of her life.

'The story behind the voice – a touching account not only for Eva Cassidy aficionados!' Folk-World
