Singer, songwriter and author Shawn Colvin won her first GRAMMY Award for Best Contemporary Folk Album with her debut album, Steady On. She has been a mainstay of the singer-songwriter genre ever since, releasing twelve superlative albums and establishing herself as one of America’s greatest live performers. She triumphed at the 1998 GRAMMY Awards, winning both Record and Song of the Year for the Top 10 hit “Sunny Came Home,” from the platinum-selling album A Few Small Repairs.
Colvin’s inspiring and candid memoir, Diamond In The Rough, was published in by Harper Collins in 2012. 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 story of a woman honing her artistry, finding her voice, and making herself whole.
Colvin was recognized for her career accomplishments when she was honored with the 2016 Lifetime Achievement Trailblazer Award by the Americana Music Association. Presenting her with this prestigious award was Bonnie Raitt. Said Raitt, “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 wake.”
Shawn Colvin’s latest release is The Starlighter (Amazon Music), a new album of songs adapted from the children's music book "Lullabies and Night Songs." The Starlighters’s 14 tracks are a mix of traditional numbers and children's standards, an elegant and graceful collection for listeners of all ages.

After a decade behind the scenes in Los Angeles collaborating with artists as varied as Jim James, Ed Helms, Peter Yarrow and Moby, in addition to co-writing and lending her voice to the theme for the CW show, Life Sentence, Jamie Drake has been honing her craft. "Everything's Fine," is the culmination of this emergence; a breathtaking embrace of humanity, heartbreak and hope, wrapped in luxurious orchestrations reminiscent of Van Dyke Parks and Jon Brion, delivered in Drake's creamy vocal stylings, while maintaining a timeless nod in her songwriting - derivative of varied musical influences ranging from Harry Nilsson, to Joni Mitchell, to Sufjan Stevens. Drake takes center stage with her first major solo release in over five years with this effort, set to release in 2019.
