Shawn Colvin Biography:
During the Fast Folk years, Colvin developed fruitful and lasting friendships and collaborations with peers like Suzanne Vega and Mary Chapin Carpenter.
Though she'd been touring and performing for two decades at that point, Colvin's first breakthrough record didn't appear until 1996. A Few Small Repairs achieved commercial success due to its chief single, "Sunny Came Home," establishing Colvin as a force within the singer-songwriter world. The disc earned her two Grammy nominations (though she'd also earned one in 1991 for her debut Steady On).
Since Steady On's release in 1989, Colvin has released ten albums in all, including two live recordings. She's been nominated for as many Grammy Awards, and has become one of the most respected and revered singer-songwriters in the contemporary American folk scene.
