Method Actor Band/Eva Cassidy: Method Actor (2003)
The Washington, D.C.-based band Method Actor was founded by Christopher in 1987. They broke up three years later. That’s when Cassidy, then 27, pursued her solo career in jazz, soul, funk, blues, folk and rock. She was only 33 when she died of cancer (metastatic melanoma) in 1996, leaving behind only a handful of recordings.
Method Actor contains two previously unreleased bonus tracks: “Little Children” and “The Waiting is Over,” both of which were recorded in 1989.
Cassidy’s vocal interpretations on this debut album provide universal appeal. Each rock and blues anthem on Method Actor leaves something special for all of us to remember her by.
