Eddi Reader has been around several blocks, musically speaking. A native of Glasgow, she has been well-known and loved in Britain for years. Oddly enough, Reader jumped right into her performing career in the early '80s travelling through Europe. Shortly after, she decided to settle in London and become a session vocalist. Her choice proved fruitful as her book soon filled up and she landed work with the Eurythmics, the Waterboys, and Gang of Four.
