Mastered by Bernie Grundman / Pressed at RTI
In an era when female singer-songwriters are ever more ubiquitous, Shawn Colvin stands out as a singular and enduring talent. Her songs are slow-release works of craft and catharsis that become treasured, lifetime companions for their listeners. As a storyteller, Colvin is both keen and warm-hearted, leavening even the toughest tales with tenderness, empathy, and a searing sense of humor.
She made her first public appearance on campus at the University of Illinois at age 15. By the late 1970s Colvin was singing in a Western Swing band in Austin, Texas - the city she now calls home. Moving to New York at the decade's end she remained in the country music field as a member of the Buddy Miller Band until she met producer, guitarist, and co-writer John Leventhal. Leventhal inspired Colvin to find her own voice as a songwriter. She began honing her skill, and was soon signed to Columbia records. Her first album, Steady On won a Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Folk Recording. Colvin continued to win fans and critics with her subsequent releases, Fat City (1992) and Cover Girl (1994).
In 1996, she issued her fourth full-length recording, A Few Small Repairs, which marked her reunion with collaborator/producer John Leventhal and would prove to be her breakthrough. The murder-ballad "Sunny Came Home" gave Colvin a Top 10 hit and two of Grammy's biggest honors: Record of the Year and Song of the Year. Further album standouts include "Get Out of This House" and "Nothin' on Me."
