EDDI READER: It's been twenty years since Scottish songstress Eddi Reader burst onto the British charts with the band Fairground Attraction and the spry, folksy hit "Perfect" - a song that won a Brit Award for Best Single. With her first solo album five years later, Reader picked up another Brit for Best Female Singer and she hasn't looked back since, recording seven albums of memorable folk/pop melodies and her own distinctively lighter-than-air vocals.

Her latest, Love Is The Way, continues the winning ways spanning traditional U.K. folk and contemporary acoustic pop with thirteen songs that include a reworking of Fleetwood Mac's "Never Going Back", a rare Brian Wilson tune ("Sweet Mountain of Love") and, as usual, some wonderful songs written by and with long-standing collaborator Boo Hewerdine.
