Biography

Shawn Colvin is one of the leading lights of the so-called ‘new folk movement’ that began in the late ’80s. Colvin’s debut record won the Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Folk Album in 1991, but it was her 1997 single, ‘Sunny Came Home,’ that firmly catapulted her into the mainstream.

EXPAND FULL BIO

Throughout the ’80s, Colvin worked her way up the folk circuit, also appearing in off-Broadway shows such as Pump Boys and Dinettes, Diamond Studs, and Lie of the Mind. Her work also appeared in Fast Folk magazine, and she got her first break in 1987 singing backup on Suzanne Vega’s hit song ‘Luka.’

Steady On, released in 1989, won the Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Folk Recording. Colvin’s 1992 sophomore effort, the more pop-oriented Fat City, earned her two more nominations — Best Contemporary Folk Recording and Best Female Pop Vocal for the single ‘I Don’t Know Why’. Cover Girl, an album of cover songs, met with mixed reviews and modest sales in 1994, but Colvin again earned a nomination for Best Contemporary Folk Recording.

In late 1996, Colvin released A Few Small Repairs. A Few Small Repairs slowly became a hit over the course of 1997, due in part to the success of ‘Sunny Came Home’ on the pop charts. In 1998, ‘Sunny Came Home’ won two Grammy Awards for Record of the Year and Song of the Year, and A Few Small Repairs became her first album to reach platinum status. Holiday Songs and Lullabies followed that autumn.
