Shawn Colvin is an American musician and singer songwriter from Illinois. While Colvin has been a solo recording artist for nearly 30 years, she is perhaps best known for her 1997 Grammy-winning song, Sunny Came Home.
She played in a number of different bands during her youth, and participated in off-broadway shows too. In 1987, she got her "big break" when producer Steve Addabbo hired her to sing backup vocals on the song Luka by Suzanne Vega. After touring with Vega, Colvin signed to Columbia Records and released her debut album 'Steady On' with them in 1989, which went on to win a Grammy for Best Contemporary Folk Album.
Her second album did well too - 'Fat City' in 1992 received a Grammy nomination for Best Contemporary Folk Recording, and her song I Don't Know Why was nominated for a Grammy in the Best Female Pop Vocal category. She released a string of more albums over the years until her latest, a collaboration with Steve Earle in 2016 and more recently the lullaby album 'The Starlighter', which hit shelves in 2018 as an Amazon Original.
Now Shawn Colvin is set to hit the UK for acoustic performances in London and Manchester in July. Catch her live by checking out the tour dates and concert ticket information below on Stereoboard.
