Album Review

Shirley Eikhard reinvented herself as a torchy jazz singer on the surprisingly successful Going Home. Performing a mixture of originals and covers, Eikhard illustrates that she has grown into a lush, rich vocalist. Her phrasing may not be particularly original, but it is assured and confident, in the style of such classic crooners as Peggy Lee. While her songs are strong, by and large, it's her alluring voice that makes Going Home a strong jazz debut.


Born: Sackville, New Brunswick, Canada

Genre: Jazz

Years Active: '90s

Shirley Eikhard began her multi-faceted musical career at the ripe age of 12 when she was paid 15 dollars to sing "Ode to Billy Joe" and "Early Morning Rain." By the time she was 14, she had nailed a contract as a folk and country singer. In 1972, Eikhard began releasing singles and albums ending in a 1978 Greatest Hits album. After a hiatus of about ten years, she returned as a full-fledged jazz singer with her Going Home for Blue Note, which won the East Coast Music Award. Jazz wasn't new to Eikhard....
