Shawn Colvin
Shawn Colvin
"..extraordinary songs, mesmerising guitar playing, and a voice that goes effortlessly from bruise-tender to scar-hard in a matter of minutes...her lyrics are crafted and clever, full of subtlety and polished phrases...With delicious sarcasm and acerbic stories, she held the audience spellbound...her songs are so personal to her that they speak to everyone who listens." -The Guardian

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. In the 27 years since the release of her debut album, Colvin has won three Grammy Awards, released eleven albums, written a critically acclaimed memoir, maintained a non-stop national and international touring schedule, appeared on countless television and radio programs, had her songs featured in major motion pictures, and created a remarkable canon of work. Colvin was born in Vermillion, South Dakota, where she lived until she was eight. A small-town childhood in the university town of Carbondale, Illinois, drew her to the guitar by the age of 10. 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 released A Few Small Repairs (1996), which would prove to be her breakthrough. The murder-ballad ͞Sunny Came Home͟ gave Colvin a Top 10 hit, a platinum-selling album and twoof Grammy’s biggest honors: Record of the Year and Song of the Year. Holiday Songs And Lullabies (1998), recorded while Colvin was eight and a half months pregnant withher daughter Caledonia, followed. Her next studio album, Whole New You (2001)found Colvin examining her new motherhood and the responsibilities of family. Polaroids (2004) is a showcase for the first half of her recording career. Her Nonesuch debut These Four Walls (2006) was lauded by People Magazine as ͞the most self-assured album of her career͟ and ͞one for the ages͟ by the Washington Post. The Austin-American Statesman called it ͞an exquisite portrait of strength and vulnerability.͟Shawn Colvin Live (2009), was recorded during a special three-night solo engagement at San Francisco’s famous jazz club, Yoshi’s.Live captures the beauty and intimacy of Colvin’s performances, showcasing her inimitable voice and matchless guitar stylings. Praised by both critics and fans, the album was honored with a Grammy Award nomination for Best Contemporary Folk Recording. All Fall Down (2012), Shawn’s eighth studio album, was the first to be produced by her longtime friend and cohort Buddy Miller (Patty Griffin, Robert Plant, Lucinda Williams). Recorded in Nashville with a group of stellar musicians, the album features performances by Alison Krauss, Emmylou Harris, Jakob Dylan, Bill Frisell, Viktor Krauss, Brian Blade, Stuart Duncan, and Julie Miller.
The release of All Fall Down was simultaneous with that of her William Morrow/HarperCollins–published memoir, Diamond In The Rough. With the wit, lyricism, and empathy that have characterized Shawn’s performances and inspired audiences worldwide, Diamond in the Rough looks back over a rich lifetime of highs and lows with stunning insight and candor. Through its pages, we witness the inspiring story of a woman honing her artistry, finding her voice, and making herself whole. Shawn’s most recent solo endeavor, Uncovered (Fantasy Records, 2015), is the long-awaited follow up to fan-favorite Cover Girl. Uncovered's twelve tunes include masterful interpretations of 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. In June 2016, Shawn Colvin and longtime friend Steve Earle united to release, Colvin & Earle, their acclaimed self-titled duo album. Produced by Buddy Miller, Colvin & Earle beautifully captures the pair’s extraordinary chemistry and is a true standout in careers already filled with pinnacles and masterpieces. The album received high praise from critics – NPR asserted that the duo ͞Elevated their collaboration to the level of top-flight album-making, bringing seemingly opposing impulses to the process.͟Shawn was recently recognized for her career accomplishments when she was honored with the Lifetime Achievement Trailblazer Award at the 2016 Americana Honors & Awards Show. Presenting Colvin with this prestigious award was Bonnie Raitt. Of Shawn, Raitt said ͞She’s simply one of the best singers I’ve ever heard— and a truly gifted and deep songwriter and guitarist... She was groundbreaking when she emerged and continues to inspire me and the legions of fans and other singer/songwriters coming up in her wake͟In celebration of the 20th anniversary of A Few Small Repairs, Columbia/Legacy Recordings will be releasing a newly-expanded edition of the album on Friday, September 15th. This expanded anniversary edition will include seven rare live performances culled from the Sony Music archives, plus enhanced artwork including newly-written liner notes by Shawn and producer John Leventhal and recently discovered archival photos.Colvin will embark the A Few Small Repairs 20th Anniversary Tourthis fall. Her first major tour with a full band since the album's original release, the seven-week cross-country jaunt runs from September 30 through November 19 and will showcase Shawn performing the album in its entirety alongside a variety of hits, personal favorites and surprises from her repertoire. Multi-instrumentalist-singer Larry Campbell & his wife singer-guitarist Teresa Williams will support all dates in addition to appearing in the band.

Larry Campbell and Teresa Williams
Multi-instrumentalist-singer Larry Campbell & singer-guitarist Teresa Williams have long provided musical firepower for artists such as Levon Helm, Bob Dylan, Mavis Staples, Little Feat, Phil Lesh and Friends, Rosanne Cash and Hot Tuna. When the duo stepped onto center stage in 2015 with their eponymous Red House Records debut, Larry Campbell & Teresa Williams, the response was immediate: the release placed them atop the Americana Radio charts. Mojo called them “The first couple of Americana” while Uncut gave the album 9/10 stars describing it as "Passionate, eloquent, spilling over with regal harmonies...channeling Emmylou and Gram." Numerous festival and theater appearances and a national tour opening for and performing with Jackson Browne followed as Larry & Teresa built a devoted following.In January 2017, armed with a new collection of Campbell originals, the pair headed back into the studio with longtime drummer/engineer Justin Guip and new bassist Jesse Murphy to record their follow up, Contraband Love. The new album represents a leap forward for Larry and Teresa as they dive even more deeply into their shared pool of musical and life experience. Building on the bedrock Americana foundation of album one, ‘ Contraband’ features adventurous songwriting, powerful new interpretations of their blues and gospel influences, sterling musicianship and some achingly vulnerable vocals by Teresa and Larry as they tackle emotionally stormy themes of love and betrayal.
