Eddi Reader was brought into the limelight with Fairground Attraction and their single 'Perfect' and parent album First of a Million Kisses which both topped the British charts. However, it has been her subsequent solo albums which signalled her increasing ability to assimilate different musical styles and make them all very much her own. From the traditional to the contemporary, Eddi brings to life all forms of song and what sets Eddi apart is the depth and quality of the emotional performance.
