Eva Cassidy was born on February 2, 1963. Growing up in a musical family on the outskirts of Washington, DC, she sang as a small child and later learned to play the guitar. Even as a child she had an amazing gift for perfect harmony. On family outings she would sing, harmonizing perfectly with the music from the car radio. She endured school, preferring her own company and, whenever possible, being involved with music and painting.

Eva clearly inherited a predisposition for creative expression from her parents. Her father, Hugh, who taught special education at Prince George's County, Maryland, public schools, is a bassist, cellist, and sculptor. Her mother, Barbara, comes from a family of craftsmen and decorators.

A deeply though unconventionally spiritual person, she viewed her talent as a gift and an obligation. When she began drawing at 2 and 1/2, her sensitivity to form and color were immediately apparent. At 9, she became serious about music, singing and practicing guitar for hours and hours. Hugh taught her the rudiments of guitar technique, introduced her to the folk music from artists such as Buffy St. Marie, Josh White, Pete Seeger, and formed a family ensemble that combined four-part vocal harmony with his bass, Eva's guitar, and her brother Dan's violin.
