Artist Bio

On her new album Uncovered, acclaimed singer/songwriter Shawn Colvin shines with sublime sensitivity, casting new light on an exquisitely curated collection of songs from some of the most admired writers in popular music history. Uncovered's twelve tunes include songs by Bruce Springsteen, Paul Simon, Tom Waits, Stevie Wonder, Robbie Robertson and Graham Nash to name a few, but in their selection and delivery, they are pure Shawn Colvin. As Shawn says: "Unless a song moves you, it doesn't matter what you do with it."

Born in Vermilion, South Dakota and raised in part in Illinois and Ontario, Shawn Colvin was already a well-traveled and seasoned performer by the time she won her first Grammy for Best Contemporary Folk Album with her debut Steady On in 1989. In the decades since, Colvin has released a string of superlative albums and established an enduring reputation as one of America’s great live performers. Her lasting appeal is due in part to her willingness to lay herself bare coupled with a dry wit; intrigued parties would do well to investigate Colvin's superb memoir Diamond In The Rough (William Morrow Publishing, 2013).

"I learned to play guitar when I was ten," Shawn explains. "I learned fast and could copy anybody. My favorite artists were songwriters: James Taylor, Carole King, and Paul Simon among them. I was so in awe of the fact that these were actually songs that someone had written. I was terrified like, how could I ever live up to that? I had writer's block before I was a writer."
