Shawn Colvin stands out as a singular and enduring talent. Her songs are works of craft and catharsis that become treasured lifetime companions for their listeners. In the 25 years since the release of her debut album, she has won three Grammy Awards, including Song of the Year and Record of the Year for the hit single "Sunny Came Home," and has been nominated for another seven.
Colvin has released 10 albums, appeared on many television and radio programs, had her songs featured in major motion pictures, maintained a demanding national and international touring schedule, and created a remarkable canon of work. Over the years, she has shared the stage with such legendary artists as Jackson Browne, Bonnie Raitt, Bruce Hornsby, Emmylou Harris, Don Henley, James Taylor, and Lyle Lovett. The Guardian newspaper praised her “…extraordinary songs, mesmerising guitar playing, and a voice that goes effortlessly from bruise-tender to scar-hard in a matter of minutes.”
